Cu Avana Intenso!

I had one of these last night!! Awesome stick in my opinion! No aftertaste in my mouth either. What do you guys think about these?

    One of my favorite "cheap" cigars. Flavorful, strong, and typically great construction. Dang good cigar.

    I love the Intenso, I think it is seriuosly under-rated. The robusto and torpedo also are a totally different smoke which I like

    +1... seriously, I don't think people give it enough respect because it's a "cheap" cigar. $60 for a box of 20. To me though, it's my go-to when I want a Ruination, but don't wanna burn a ruiination. Neither is expensive, but the Cu-Avana is still half as much as the Ruination, and I can burn them everyday. Great construction and draw, tons of smoke, and a full-body with lots of spice, leather, and coffee. Everything that I love in a cigar.

    Agreed on all accounts. btw - I begged Jeff Jackson to hook me up on the price with these. Think I paid $2 for the Toro, and $1.75 for the Robusto. How about that for some value? :)

    Yeah, I would revisit. I really dig this smoke. Like everybody else here said - a very good value.

    I don't totally agree with everything said here. It is a fantastic cigar... for the price. It has a bit of complexity, and a full body. It pales in comparison to the Ruination for me. I would call these "smoke 'em at a party" gars. Not something I'm going to sit down and take notes on, but good enough to smoke the whole thing.

    This was the first stick that kick my @ss. Need to revisit now that I am relatively more experienced.
  • I've heard great things about this cigar for a while. I bought a 10-pack of Toro's about 6 months ago, and they did nothing for me. I let them age a little bit, and they still did nothing for me. I'm thinking I may have gotten a bad batch, but I haven't ordered them again. To me, there's not a whole lot of taste. I kept waiting for it to pick up, but it never did.

    the torpedo is SOOO much better. The toro did nothing for me either but i LOVE the torpedo.
