These are the shortest and strongest of the Cuaba gang. If you find them fresh, they have a bitter, woody after taste but, with the customary five years of ageing, flavours can be closer to the Romeo style and characterised by a tangy, fruity sweetness. This cigar seems like its ageing ability is splendid. I love these cigars and was smoking one after dinner when my guest asked if I had an extra one for him, and I did. By the way he was puffing you could see he was really was enjoying himself! I told him to slow down and savour the stick and he said it was hard to stop puffing as it was so good.
