The Cubana Especial is a highly praised Dominican line produced in Santiago. The brand is currently offered only in the ruddy Rosado Colorado Maduro Ecuadorian wrapper that encases the Torpedo featured this month. Unlike many emerging cigar brands which merely trek to cigar-making countries to buy cigars, create their own band and call them "their own", Cubana Especial owns their farms and factory which are both 100% dedicated to producing only for their line of cigars. All of their cigars use Habano Seco leaves for filler. The Cubana Especial tobaccos are aged for 36 months prior to rolling and the cigars are aged another 6 months after being rolled. Immediately note a near perfect draw in this well constructed cigar. No soft spots, consistently rolled and soft to the touch, we found it to burn evenly and offer plenty of smoke volume. We really liked this cigar, finding it medium-to-full bodied with a pleasant mildly spicy flavor. You may also pick up on some cedar and coffee tones. Look for a slight bite in the aftertaste. Overall, a very easy cigar to smoke offering solid construction and great taste. Consider pairing it with a hoppy Pale Ale.
