Presentation

The Jose L. Piedra Conservas comes in 5 cardboard packs of 5 cigars with Habanos Packing Code D-C-C/P-5-n-25

Dimensions:

Length: 140 mm (5.5 inches)

Diameter: 17.46 mm

Ring gauge: 44

Shape: Long Corona / Conserva

Appearance:

Despite being a cheap cigar, its solid appearance really tells it apart from its competitors, the cheaper Habanos. The wrapper looks nice with a uniform Colorado Claro tone, the seams are tight and at the head the double cap is beautifully applied. The wrapper is also pretty oily, with few veins running at the surface of the wrapper. It feels solid in hands, with just the right amount of give when squeezed. It looks evenly packed from head to toe.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up

The aroma coming from the cigar at cold is amazing. There are aromas of moist earth and tobacco. Once cut, the draw is perfect, perhaps just a tad too open. When put to the lips, the pre-light draw also gives some flavors of earth and of salty tobacco.

Burn/ Draw

Lighting up the cigar is easy, and the cigar burns nice and evenly. It doesn’t require attention and produces a nice dark grey ash.

Initial third:

The first third of the cigar starts off with powerful and salty flavors of earth; there are also some woody and leathery flavors in the mix. Despite the intense flavors from the first puffs upon lighting up the cigar, the smoke is very smooth throughout. After few draws, there are also notes of nuttiness arising, along with notes of leather. The aftertaste is short, with some notes of moist earth and some sweeter hints. The body of the cigar is pretty light, in the mild to medium range for the first third. Overall, a very pleasant start of cigar, flavorful and of beautiful construction.

Middle third:

In the middle third, the cigar offers steady and consistent flavors. The beautiful earth is still very dominant, even becoming tastier because the woody aromas slowly recede. The nutty flavors are getting more noticeable, as well as some light spiciness that is also coming to the foreground. But the cigar never gets too spicy nor too harsh, the aroma remains spot-on, rich and smooth. The body of the cigar is still right under the medium range.

Final third:

In the final third, flavor profile doesn’t evolve too much, the spices increase once again. The wood, earthiness and nuts are still around, with some sweet notes joining the mix. Finally, some acidity from citrus is also appearing around the finish, without impairing the quality of the smoke. The body remains in the light-medium for the final part of the smoke.

In summary, this is a beautiful cheapie. A great smoke to enjoy daily while going on your daily routine.

Smoking time:

1 Hour 15 Minutes – 1 Hour 30 Minutes

For this price...CAN'T BE BEAT! , 6/19/2021

Okay...so this is not a Cohiba, Partagas, or Bolivar by any means. Don't expect that. But honestly...I was quite surprised at how good and creamy these were. I LOVE opening a new package/box of Habanos and there is that very distinct, can't find it anywhere else in the world, kind of Cuban tobacco smell! and that is these! Prop's to the AMAZING packaging, and shipping time for these! Thank you Cigar Terminal! I have ordered Cubans from many other places, and to date...this is THE BEST! Cigar Terminal is an EASY 5 stars for sure! But specific to the cigar...given the price (and the price at Cigar Terminal is better than ANYWHERE else I located these!) , short filler (but hand made), and lack of dimension as far as Cuban cigars go...this was a GREAT smoke! Creamy and pretty consistent throught...in a good way. No surprises, and nothing too harsh or too bland. Again, not Bolivar, but I didn't pay for a Bolivar...those are on their way now! :) You should try these and keep them at the ready in your humidor! These are now my go to for mowing, yard work, fishing, outdoor anything, possibly a day at the golf course with friends, cigar. You wont be disappointed! My 5-star rating is based within the understanding that the price of these is ridiculous! These are WAAAAAY better tan many pricy non-Cubans for sure. Seriously! Its kind of taken me to a "a cheap Cuban is better than an expensive non-Cuban cigar" frame of mind. Sorry for the long rant...but I really like these little cheapies!

Got these sticks in a week ago , easy to light ,draw is sweet , no touch ups, mild to about medium strength , be patient till the middle of the second third things start to pick up , bottom line for the price around 3.50 a stick ! Perfect for everyday smokes !

Basically bought these due to an awesome price point.

Have smoked a few and they definitely are loaded with flavor.
But some of the flavor has an overtone of wet grass and a slight hint of ammonia.
So, I am thinking the cigar has been rushed and constructed with leaves that may have not been aged long enough.
I am putting them away for some time in a dry environment, say around 63% humidity.
I think they will develop into nice smoke being rewarded by this patient scenario and extra aging.

I was skeptical at first, given the lower pricing, but this is not a bad cigar at all. A medium, simple tasting Cuban (not many complex nuances), that is good for any time of day. Will definitely buy again.
