J.C. Newman Cigar Co. Chairman Stanford Newman first approached his friend Carlos Fuente Sr. about an idea he had in 1985. He wanted to make the first 'premium' cigar offered in bundles. Using perfectly-aged Dominican longfillers & binders rolled in your choice of the finest Connecticut shade-grown natural, or naturally-sweet broadleaf maduro wrappers, La Unica Cabinet No. 400 cigars are well-balanced, rich-tasting Dominican cigars, skillfully made by the same craftsmen who produce Arturo Fuente cigars.
This has become my go to cigar. It has a great taste while being smoked and a wonderful long lasting aftertaste. The burn is very even and produces a long ash. I have many cigars that are much more expensive but none that I enjoy more than the La Unica. It is the kind that you will smoke to a nub and wish it was longer.
Just got a box of maduro 400's. Freakin off the charts! Great construction, slighty more spicey than traditional Fuente's, and incredible aroma. I think I might jsut have to have another one roght now!!!
Every cigar smoker needs a cigar like this in their humidor. It s light, slightly sweet and toasty. The construction, burn and draw are spot on. Yes it lacks dynamics, power, and transitions but it s the perfect cigar for pairing with anything you actually want to taste rich coffee, single malt, cognac as its neutrality actually allows you to taste what you are pairing with it rather than taking center stage. In its own it s easy, light and pleasant- albeit slightly boring. But with a strong cup of coffee or port, it becomes the perfect compliment.
