Quick Smoke: Cuban Crafters Medina 1959 Churchill

23 May 2010

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.”

Since it debuted in October 2008, Cuban Crafters’ Medina 1959 blend has become one of my favorite mild-bodied cigars. This Cuban-seed Sumatra-wrapped smoke is an absolute treasure. Handmade in Miami by Manuel Medina, formerly of the H. Upmann and Davidoff factories in Cuba, it boasts toasted flavors of cream, butterscotch, and onion spice with outstanding construction. I’ve written before of my affinity for the Robusto and Torpedo. The Churchill (7 x 50) is every bit as delicious for $7 apiece.

Verdict = Buy.

    I love the Lancero! One of my favorites. It starts mild but builds nicely throughout the smoke and never gets bitter. Great job on these!
