Cigar of the Week: Tabacos Baez Favoritos

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The smoke is creamy, earthy and primarily woody with excellent balance and some sweet notes on the finish. It’s also mighty consistent. I’ve smoked through more than half the box to-date and have yet to find a clunker; moreover, it’s not surprising given Pepin’s reputation for quality construction.

The strength and flavors ramp-up a little in the last act, making this more of a medium to full cigar. Whether you’re a fan of Pepin’s oeuvre, or have a fondness for Nicaraguan blends, you would do well by having a stash of these in your humidor.

See pricing and applicable offers for all Tabacos Baez cigars.

(Note: This series should not be confused with the Tabacos Baez SF selection, which is made with a mix of medium and short fillers.)
