This is a very nice looking cigar! With several out of the box I could get almost no smoke. These cigars have a wonderful full flavor but on the poorly wrapped ones you are in serious danger of developing a hernia trying to draw any smoke! I found them to be inconsistent in manufacture. Overall, I would rate this an excellent choice.
I m not a fan of most popular cigar blends but I have consistently enjoyed San Andres thrown in the mix. Other Mexican puros don t have the rich, dark taste that Las Cabrillas has I m sure the maduro wrapper has something to do with that . Perhaps my favorite aspect is the excellent draw, which is perfect every time. Definitely give it a try if you haven t been impressed with other Mex puros, as I can t imagine it getting much better than this.
I discovered Las Cabrillas in the original Famous Smoke Shop near Sixth Ave. in Manhattan, in 1990. The taste is outstanding, mild but full, and the best part of the cigar is the very end. I'm delighted I can continue ordering these great cigars in my new home in Israel.
very good cigar for the money
Been enjoying this one for years. Always consistent for the taste and excellent price
A lot of bang for the money
i first purchased the Cortez at a local tobacco shop, for the price, $2.75 a stick, couldn't pass it up. Much to my surprise i really liked it. It's a great mild, enjoyable smoke. The connecticut or the maduro are equally as good. i would love to get a box of either one on a continual cycle. they're just that nice.
A great golf course cigar. Nice burn, mild and will last eight or nine holes!
For the money, this is an excellent smoke........a Great golf course cigar............smooth woody aroma in the Maduro. I purchase the Balboa on a regular basis
GREAT CIGAR for the price. Mild yet flavorful. Stayed fresh even to the end.
Yesterday, I was given a box of the Columbus Maduro cigars as a Christmas gift. I had never been introduced to this brand before, and upon opening the box I was impressed by the appearance of the cigar. Later in the evening, I finally had the opportunity to try one while relaxing with a fine Scotch. Overall, I was amazed and very pleased with the cigar. I smoked it to the band and it never became bitter orharsh. It had a subtle leathery flavor that I found very pleasing and the draw and burn were quite good. I'll definitely purchase more of them in the future. I would rate this cigar as a strong 7 on a 10 point scale.
