This is a firm, very attractive smoke, very good cap with a smooth slightly oily wrapper. Burned slightly uneven but held a strong ash and drew well. Flavor is the downside. Very mild leather and cedar flavors that turns woody as you finish. Mid 80's on looks. Avoid if you are looking for a medium or stronger smoke.
Found an old empty box in my father s dresser; He s 92 and needs a little help now and then anyway, I lokked them up and decided to try a 5 er. What a nice cigar this is. It can t compete against the upper echelon like Padron, AVO, etc. but for the price you have to work hard at finding one better. This is a great everyday cigar that is custom made for the golf course or just sitting around in the garage with your biddies while working on the bike. No bite or bitterness, just a flavorfull smoke with no surprises. You feel good after burning one of these. Dad knew this back in 62 when he bought his last box. I ll always have some of these in one of my humidors.
way better than a cohihba20
Well I really think this cigar is under rated, it is an excellent cigar and has top quality in the construction and burn, the consistency is outstanding!00
Mild, cool, easy drawing, cigar. Lasts about six holes on the golf course...10
Very good smoke !!The flavors i tasted the most were : cream, nut, milk coffee. These flavors lasted till the end of the smoke.10
my regular smoke is the lgc corona gorda or wavell , this is even better ! they're just so hard to find.1813
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!00
This is one of my favorites. It is cheap in price but rich in flavor. If you are into stronger cigars that are complex Cuesta Rey is a must have in the humidor.00
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)715
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.00
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.169
