Jose L. Piedra Cazadores
Jose L Piedra Cazadores are named for their vitola, measuring 152mm in length with a 43 ring gauge, making them just a touch bigger than a standard Corona. These cigars are filled with tobacco from Remedios, in the Vuelta Arriba region of Cuba.
All of the cigars in the Jose L. Piedra range are Tripa Corta, Totalmente a Mano – Short filler, Handmade, as a direct result of this, JLP cigars are incredible value for money cigars. Their white branded bands are hand applied and the contrast pops against the color of the rich tobacco leaf, they are finished with a traditional cuban cap.
We were pleasantly surprised by a sweet earth forward flavour off the jump, the smoke was moderately thick with a creaminess, we found additional notes of nut and stone fruit mixed with cedar.
This would make an excellent cigar for a day on the golf course, try it with a cloudy wheat ale to compliment the fruit notes. You can expect a smoking time of one hour.
