Best Mild Cuban Cigars for 2017
Here’s my picks for best mild Cuban cigars….
JR Cuban Alternative – JR Cigars has cigars made to their recipe by the big brand cigar companies and for a fraction of the cost. You get top quality big name cigars but not the big name price tag. It doesn’t get any better than that. This cigar is said to be the CLOSEST thing to a real Cuban cigar without traveling to Havana. It’s a 7×48 stick and medium to full bodied. And the price is right at $5.00 each.
H. Upmann Half Corona – at half the length of a Corona and 44 ring gauge, this is a shorty Cubano lasting about a good 40 minutes. And it’s a fantastic 40 minutes too. A full body stick with lots of bold cedar and spice flavors that will keep you entertained. All handmade and perfect construction and draw. A very nice cigar for only about $6.
Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 1 – a medium strength cigar with a really nice dark and oily wrapper. It feeds you aromas of coffee, chocolate and earthiness. Juan Lopez offers some of the very finest cigars. Hand rolled with the finest tobaccos. These sticks are top notch. They retail for about $8.00 each.
Portages Serie D No. 4 – this is often touted as the best Cuban cigar outside of Cuba. It’s a full bodied stick that is most likely better for the seasoned smoker. You’ll experience some serious herbal aromas along with a nutty, leathery and earthy finish. The end does seem to get a bit stronger than the start, so be prepared. The Portages Serie D No. 4 sells for about $12. A really flavorful and bold smoke.
