Quick Smoke: Te-Amo Cuba Blend Gran Corto

28 Nov 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Te-Amo Cuba Blend Gran Corto

This summer, Te-Amo expanded on its four World Selection Series blends with a Nub-esque Gran Corto size (4 x 62). New format, same old Te-Amo problems. The profile turns from harsh to salty to uninteresting, characterized by a sour aftertaste. And it appears as though the Cuba Blend also suffers from the coarseness that plagues the Dominicana and Nicaragua lines. To top it off, construction is spotty at best, rendering this criollo-wrapped cigar unworthy of your time or its MSRP of $4.75.

Verdict = Sell.
