Just by looking at the La Finca Joyas, I really can’t tell that it is a bundled cigar.  In other words, it doesn’t necessarily look cheap.  The attractive red, black, and gold band reveals the La Finca name, as well as the company logo.  There’s a decent amount of oil on the dark brown wrapper, and only a few small veins are noticeable.  Other than that, I see zero imperfections.  As I squeeze the cigar, there’s a little bit of give, but it’s not too spongy.  There’s a pre-light aroma that’s sweet, while the cold taste is of mild tobacco.

Lighting the La Finca Joyas is done with ease, and once it finally gets going, it burns decently. The draw is really good and there's an ample amount of smoke as well. The light gray ash is sturdy. The burn requires a few touch-ups throughout, as well as one re-light.

As far as the flavor of the La Finca Joyas is concerned, it is smooth overall with average complexity. The cigar starts with a blend of pepper, sweetness, and earth in the first third. The second third brings more pepper to the table, as well as mild tobacco notes. The final third is creamy and sweet. Overall, I’d call the blend of flavors consistent, even if they’re not too varied.

Did the La Finca Joyas blow me away once I smoked it?  No, it did not.  Still, I guess I really can’t complain too much.  The cigar wasn’t a total dud in the burn department and the consistent flavors were good enough to keep me satisfied.  I wouldn’t recommend this as a “feature” cigar that you light up to really concentrate on.  Instead, I see the Joyas as something you’d smoke while mowing the lawn or doing some chores around the house.  At a little over $2 each, you won’t be breaking the bank with the Joyas, which is really its main selling point.  Pick up a bundle to keep some extras handy for your friends.  You won't be risking too much in the process.

The La Finca Joyas earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.
