REVIEW: Cu-Avana Intenso

I got this one in a sampler. I am not usually a fan of full-bodied smokes. I was a bit cautious to try it out, but, man, this an aptly named cigar! It’s ‘intense’ from start to finish in all the right ways. Great construction with a nice, slow burn; lightly flavorful with heavy, tasty spices throughout.  

That said, I would label this more of a medium-bodied, or (at most) medium-to-full-bodied. It comes on a bit strong, but if you’re willing to invest the time (took me 50 minutes) you’re in for a great smoking experience.

Well done.
