I have been smoking these off and on the last several months and they definitely fit into our under 4 dollar sticks both for smoke time and taste.
When it comes to cigar making, the folks at Casa Fernandez are definitely all in. From planting to harvesting to aging, fermenting, blending, and rolling, their vertical integration ensures freshness and flavor with every cigar they produce. Are they control freaks? Heck, yeah! But who cares when the end result is a smoke like the New Cuba Robusto with its spicy Corojo wrapper and premium combo fillers from authentic Cuban seeds. We say, control all you want as long as you bring us more of the good stuff!
And at $2.25 a stick it makes for a nice 30 minute smoke.
