Quintero has added a new cigar to its range. The Favorito measures 4 ½” (115mm) x 50 ring gauge and joins the Panatela (renamed the Tubulares when placed in an aluminium tube) as the two sizes available in the UK. This cigar is now widely available through the Specialist in Havana network. To find your nearest stockest, click here.
Quintero’s smooth, medium bodied taste makes it ideal for those seeking to experience the flavour of Habanos at a reasonable price.
It is one of the few Habanos brands not born in Cuba’s capital city, Havana. Instead its founder, Augustin Quintero with his four brothers set up shop in the south coast city of Cienfuegos, known as the “Pearl of the South”. All of the tobaccos selected for Quintero’s filler blend come from Vuelta Abajo and Semi Vuelta zones within the world famous Pinar del Rio region.
All Quinteros are made using the Tripa Corta, Totalmente a Mano – short filer, totally hand made – technique.
