Espinosa Y Ortega Cubao #4 Cigar Review

This 4.9×50 stick features a dark brown, dry and firm wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, a triple cap and faint tobacco aroma. First light reveals a medium bodied rich chewy smoke, with a dry chcolate and pepper combo leaving a very parched by chewy finish. The first third mellows considerably down to a very smooth mild-medium body with much lighter smoke. Flavors are a smooth slightly aged tobacco and pepper taste, with a short light finish. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point there were no changes other than the ash falling off in a solid chunk. Ending at 45 minutes to the nub the remainder proved to be just as one dimensional but with excellent construction. Thank you very much to viewer Tyson Hockstaff for providing this sample for review, I greatly appreciate the support!

    I like these…. I think for the price that they were when they were first out they should have more complexity …. Do you know if these are still made by Pepins factory or by Erik Espinosa at his La Zona factory and is it the same blend?

    Bryan, please check your video file on Cubao #3. Server
    freezes at the same place and will not play. Ultimately says “not available”..
    I hope your electrode adjustment on the Promethius lighter is giving you the same results as mine in lighting first time every time, cold or hot.
    Thanks for a great site, articulate communication , and superb cigar notes and evaluation.
