Review - Jose L. Piedra

~FROM 3/18/2005~
Name:
Jose L. Piedra Size: Cazadore
Origin: Cuba Construction: Machine Made
Purchased: Casa Del Habano, Pinar del Rio
Price: 1 convertible peso (1.10 USD)
Smoked: Home Accompanied By: Dark Rum with Ice

It was purchased in a bundle of 25, and several of the cigars in the bundle were damaged. Overall the construction was noticeably poor; heavy veins, discolored wrapper, etc. I smoked several of these and would recommend a 'punch cut.' Any other cut could leave you with a mouthful of picadura. The wrapper is a very thin Conneticut.

Flavor is medium, but harsh, although no mistake that it is Cuban. After a few deep smokes, the lack of depth of the machine blend is obvious; 90%-95% of the filler is picadura.

That being said, it was about $1.10 for the cigar. Don't be afraid to give it a try.

Overall Score: 55/100
Flavor:
60/100
Construction: 45/100
Presentation:
40/100
