Isla de Cuba Blend 376


The Isla de Cuba Blend 376 was released in late 2008, and tends to stray a bit from its earlier counterparts in the brand. As its name suggests, it is a blend made from products spread across Latin America. The Blend 376 is filled by a proprietary combination of tobacco from Honduras, Nicaragua, and other Latin American nations. The Blend 376 is solidly constructed and covered by a Mexican San Andres Morron wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder. The Blend 376 has a dark, bold exterior, and its band is a bit different from the Classic and Maduro in that “Blend 376” replaces the nostalgic logo of the brand with the woman on it.

The Blend 376 burns delightfully throughout, and has a bolder, spicier flavor than its predecessors with tinges of nuts and coffee balanced until the end. Being that it is a bit of a bolder smoke, the Blend 376 is more of a cigar to have on occasion. Still, its good burn, solid construction, and interesting flavors gain a four star rating.

The Isla de Cuba Blend 376 is sold in boxes of 25, or around $7 each. The Blend 376 comes in six different sizes: 5 x 44 Corona Chica, 5.5 x 50 Robusto Extra, 6 x 52 Torpedo, 6 x 54 Toro Grande, and 7 x 50 Double Corona.

Isla De Cuba Wango Tango

Last but not least, is the Isla de Cuba Wango Tango. Wango Tango is the latest release from the brand, and strays from its “older brothers” with the hopes of being a less traditional and more “hip” cigar. The Wango Tango is filled with a covert “four country blend” and covered by both a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and binder. It has a dark exterior, with a more modern band that simply boasts the name “Wango Tango.”

The Wango Tango has a spicy and peppery, yet lighter flavor than the aforementioned Isla de Cuba cigars, and burns well throughout. Its definitely not a classic cigar, and rather one to enjoy on rare occasions. For a more traditional experience, its better to pick up the Classic, Maduro, or Blend 376 from Isla de Cuba. The Wango Tango earns three stars, and is worth a try if you are the daring type.

The Isla de Cuba Wango Tango can be purchased for around $7 for a single or in boxes of 24. It comes in four different sizes: 4.5 x 60 Quickie, 5.5 x 50 Slickie, 6.5 x 54 Biggie, and 7 x 38 Longie.

Hopefully these reviews have enticed you to give the Isla de Cuba line a try. Until next time!
