Ortega Cubao

The Cubao is back!

Back in the day, a cigar called the Cubao made quite a splash in the cigar world. It was created by Erik Espinosa and Eddie Ortega, produced by Don Pepin Garcia’s factory in Nicaragua, and received rave reviews and a 92-point rating. The brand was discontinued from the market when one of its rare components became unavailable, but much to the delight of aficionados everywhere, it’s making its triumphant return.

Containing the same blend as the original release, Cubao is being produced by Carlos Sanchez’s factory in Nicaragua. Just like before, a beautiful Ecuador Sumatra leaf lays atop a Nicaraguan Binder and fillers from Esteli and Jalapa. Also just like before: the flavors are graceful, smooth, and rich, and full of cream, pepper, and cedar notes in perfect balance. If you lamented the loss of the previous iteration of the Cubao, or you’ve never heard of it before and you’re just looking for classic Cuban-esque flavors at a great price, you’ll want to add a box of Cubao to your cart ASAP.

Great Cigar
For the price this cigar should be a staple in any humidor. Smooth, full flavors of dark chocolate with a hint of cedar on the back end without being spicy.

It’s just another cigar
It’s well made although there’s really no distinction between this cigar and the next cigar that can be purchased in the general store. The burn was ok, I had to relight atleast four times to finally finish. It’s a good cigar but it’s not my favorite.

Really shocked by the quality and flavor of this cigar for the price. Once you learn who is responsible for it, it’s self explanatory. Great everyday cigar with a little punch.

The Ortega Cubau Robusta lived up to the hype about flavor and smoothness. No harsh aftertaste! Well done!

Best cuban outside of Cuba I’ve had had!!
I’ve been smoking cigars for about 20 years now. I got these as an add on for an order I made and had no expectations. My first impression was that they were a bit strong at first and very tightly packed. My second impression was how smoothly they drew. But after about 5 minutes I knew I had a new favorite!! They are very complex and deliver a well balanced flavor profile. In addition they burn absolutely perfect. I’ve had more than a couple Cuban cigars and I would say these stand up to the best I’ve ever had. If you want a taste of an old time Cuban cigar you can’t go wrong with these. Get a box and I’m sure you will agree!

Worth the wait
Finally got my hands on these yesterday. They arrived at my local post office a week ago before I watched them move to Covington, New Orleans, Memphis, Atlanta, then finally Back to Gulfport MS where I reside. Bless everybody’s heart in these difficult times. It was worth the wait. I just enjoyed the first one on my back porch with a couple of good beers under a fan with some good music while the grill was working. I couldn’t turn it loose till it got down to my fingernails. I can’t really describe why it was so good other than somebody really knew what they were doing. I’ll be ordering more.

Cigar of the Year
Sleeper cigar of the year ! Rich, woodsey, nutmeg, spice . Just the right amount of each. Not overpowering just perfect. Thanks Eddie, a homerun. Wish I could shake your hand.

Got a 5 pack in the Coming to America sampler. The shining star of the group. Wonderful construction and flavor. Slow burn, good draw,medium strength. A wonderful find as I haven’t smoked these before

Outstanding!
Amazing cigar and a great value! This cigar could easily be a daily treat! It burns nice slow and even inch by inch. The flavors are excellent. Nicaraguan tobacco is some of my favorite and Ecuadorian habano wrappers also rank highly with me. It's a good stick with plenty of kick. I'll be certainly adding a box with most future orders!

IMO A great stick..
