After reading positive reviews of the new Jose L Piedra petit cazadores, a hand made Cuban shortfiller of 105mm and ring 43, I decided to buy a bundle. I don’t know if they are available as singles, but the price is so low (25 euro for a bundle of 25) that buying a bundle isn’t a great risk. The wrapper is oily with lots and lots of veins, not a real looker, and the cigar has a light manure smell.
The first flavor that comes to mind is sweet full bodied leather, but the sweetness disappears soon and the leather also becomes milder. This cigar has a strong full bodied start but grows into a mild bodied cigar pretty soon. There is not a lot of progress on the flavors, the cigar is pretty consistent.
The smoke is full, the ash is dark and firm.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, it’s a nice snack cigar for a small price.
