Siboney Reserve Churchill cigars are blended and handcrafted by the Don Pepin Garcia family at the My Father cigar factory in Esteli. A blend of Nicaraguan Jalapa and Condega Corojo longfillers, plus Nicaraguan Criollo '98 and Honduran Habano binders are rolled in plush Nicaraguan Habano Rosado wrappers with a gorgeous triple cap. Oozing with dark woody flavors accented by light peppery notes, the smoke is full-bodied and perfectly-balanced. A truly stunning cigar at remarkably affordable price. Order your box now!
Pepin fans will find this cigar a bit tamer than his usual fare, as I would consider it in the medium-to-full category. As one would expect, there's a bit of spice and a healthy dose of leathery, woodsy flavor. The taste is consistent from first puff to the nub. The draw is easy and produces a thick volume of smoke. It provides an exceptionally smooth smoking experience and a near-perfect burn. All-in-all, this cigar is an excellent value.
A great smoke at twice, maybe even 3 times the price. As a fan of fine cigars, I usually have to scale back my expectations when I have a less expensive cigar, but Siboney Reserve proves to be a fine cigar at an everyday price. Good draw, nice smoke, even burn, and a great flavor all the way through. And for those like me who are impatient, they're great right off the truck, although time in the humidor has proven to bring out the flavor nicely.
There is a reason Rosado wrappers are rarely used anymore: the taste. I realize taste is subjective and these are definitely unique tasting smokes. However, different is not always good. They taste primarily of dried wood, and the smoke is very thin. Buy something else as even at auction prices this smoke isn't worth it.
