Cuesta Rey Centenario Cameo 10/10
Expertly hand-rolled by A. Fuente in the DR, the Cuesta Rey Centenario Cameo (10) and 'Centennial' cigars are distinguished by their smooth, rich flavor blended from only the finest long filler tobaccos, Dominican binder and five-year-aged Connecticut shade natural or Connecticut sun-grown Maduro wrappers. Every Cuesta Rey Centenario Cameo (10) and Centennial cigar is aged inside a special cedar-lined humidor for 120 days to achieve the ultimate in taste, flavor and aroma.
I just had my first one of these. Great burn, draw, smoke, and taste! It lasted about 45 minutes. Although small, it was WAY BETTER than bigger $1.00 smokes I've had. Very satisfying!
This is one GREAT cigar. Small in size but BIG on flavor. Has great aroma with complex flavors. Great burn and draw. A MUST for any serious cigar aficianado!!!! (if you can find them)
A good review of the Cuesta Ray would be in comparison to only the other cigarillos in the same category (i.e 10 for 15 dollars).In this category I have tried a handful. Comparing this cigar to those: The Questa Rey Centenario Cameo is better than the Leon Jimenes Petites, the Montecristo Yellow Memories, and the Partagas Puritos.Compared to these, the Cuesta Rey is obviously better.
Terrifficly smoothe elegant little cigar. "Just right" when you have a few long moments to relax and cogitate, but not the whole night to spend with a larger friend. My "matinee mix" consists of the Cuesta Rey Cameo (rated here), the La Aurura Finos--my favorites--and some H. Uppman petites. I keep these in their own small cigar-box-converted humidor, always ready to be called upon for a nice relaxing smoke.
