276. Quintero Brevas (aged since 2014)

From my own collection.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.

Information: Quintero is a current pre-revolution brand, introduced circa 1924. The brand’s full name is Quintero y Hno (Quintero and brother). The range comprises medium strength cigars, using short-filler tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo and Semi Vuelta regions in Cuba.

Size: 5.5×41, Corona.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and smooth but with some clear protruding veins.

Construction: Firm but still a little giving wjen lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Wet cardboard and cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a taste of wet cardboard, light spices and cedarwood.

2nd third: Keeps the same flavour wise and I’m not a fan of it.

Burn: Burns pretty sharp and a firm and stable white-ish ash.

Smoke: Light smoke, cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: Keeps the same.

Duration: 22:10-23:05, 55 min.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. Don’t buy this if you like cigars, not even if you are on a budget. Like there are so many better stuff you can get for a little bit more money.

Result: In my book this is an 82 point cigar.
