Quintero Favoritos (tubed) Cuba - Robusto
Unlike our other Cuban cigars, Quintero don't use hand-rolled long filler - which is to say the whole tobacco leaf - but the less expensive short filler. This gives a more friable ash, but also a much sharper price. You won't find better value in Cuba. Okay, at 4 1/2 inches these are slightly shorter than the standard robusto, but the 50 ring gauge still gives a broad, rich coffee and chocolate flavour at an unbeatable price. They can experience a slightly wobbly burn, meaning they're not ideal for new smokers, in which case we'd recommend La Invicta's flawlessly constructed Robusto.
