Review Notes: This cigar explodes the myth about Cuban cigars. Granted, it's an inexpensive Cuban; Puro Rey list price is $56 per box of 25. So obviously it's not a great ISOM smoke. My brother, who is not a cigar smoker, received this little guy from a client and gave it to me. When I saw it was a Cuban en Tubo, my eyes bugged out! But when I opened it up, it looked like a dimestore joke cigar; absolutely terrible construction, as though a blind person had rolled it, and it was an unappetizing orangish clay color. It was also riddled with soft spots thoughout its short length, but I went ahead and smoked it. I have to admit the taste wasn't terrible, but it certainly couldn't be described as good. It burned with an evil-looking black ring about the edge, and it wouldn't hold even a quarter-inch of ash. I smoked it down almost to the band, mostly because it was a Cuban. All in all, a very disappointing experience; I've smoked non-ISOM $1 cigars that are infinitely superior.
