"All in all a very pleasant cigar to smoke. I loved that the flavor profile started off with a great combination, only to add more to the game as the cigar smoked. No drastic changes, just enough change to sense a difference on the palate and enhance the overall smoking experience. This is a very flavor forward cigar that has much more body than strength. I honestly feel that smokers of all levels will find some enjoyment here. This would be a great cigar for first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea, or an after dinner cigar with a spiced rum or low proof bourbon. Any beverage with a lot of strength or spice will overrun it versus elevate it. I would be proud to have some of these in my humidor." -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)

The Cuevas family’s tobacco history began when Juan Cuevas, a Spanish expatriate, began growing tobacco in Cuba in the mid 19th century.
Casa Cuevas Cigars has announced a Limited Edition cigar called La Mandarria which translates to "The Sledgehammer". Three months ago the Casa Cuevas warehouse was broken into and nearly all their inventory was stolen. They got away with more than 25,000 cigars, including the planned Limited Edition Flacos which they were unable to release. The perpetrators used sledgehammers to break through the exterior wall, hence the name La Mandarria.

"I knew from the look and smell of this cigar I was in for a treat and it didn't disappoint. Premium cigars should just preform this well in terms of construction, smoke output, and flavor. I think if there was just a bit more dynamic flavor profile changes it would have put it over the top. Still there's so much here to like I have to recommend picking up a fiver and just enjoying a terrific cigar. " -Alan (Eulogy)
