Quick Smoke: Tesa Series Finos F500

11 Apr 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Tesa Series Finos F500

This six inch by 54 ring gauge torpedo is a product of the Tesa Cigar Co., a Chicago-based boutique that harvests tobacco from the fertile fields of Estelí. It features top-notch combustion qualities and a pleasantly mild taste of creamy cashew and toasty clove. Those attributes make the Connecticut shade-wrapped Series Finos F500 a wonderful morning or mid-afternoon smoke. And even if you’re a bit reluctant to pay $7.55 for a mild, relatively unknown cigar, you can take comfort in the fact that Tesa gives 10% of its profits to benefit the housing, education, and sustenance of the Nicaraguan people.

Verdict = Buy.
