I smoked both Conservas and Brevas; it seems that Conservas have better construction and more consistent wrapper color. I know that these come from Vuelto Arriba - secondary tobacco growing region, but they provide a wonderful smoking experience - the real cubanesque flavor that can not be duplicated anywhere else - these smoke better than any $5 cigars made in other countries. A terific value at about $2.00 per stick!

they came in a bundle and were warped, dried and miss shaped. Bad out of the wrapper ( and by that i mean unsmokable) Left in the humi they are smokable but i am not enjoying them, i would save up more money ( they are quite cheap) and get a diplo #4 as these smokes cannot measure up

Just got my first shippment from CL! Fast and everything perfect! Got a box of these bad boys and could not wait to try and smoked one right away! I'm pretty new to smoking cubans but this was the best for the money I have ever had! Every puff tasted smooth and great kinda chocolate toned. Some cigars look a little flat but overall they look good and are constructed well. Burned great, but had a tight draw so I loosened it up and all was good! Smelled so good to! Man now I'm hooked! I would recommend to anyone.
Well-made and also very good in the draw, this cigar carries rich, earthy aromas with rougher undertones; spicy, rustic, full taste with notes of tender sharpness; a mouth full of Cuban aromas and terroir-expression for little money; it is not a cajoling cigar but an indigenous, medium Puro.
