Hardly even worth the price. Low quality construction and non-existing flavor are my impressions of the Guantanamera Cristales.
It seems to be carelessly wrapped and the wrapper itself is very rough with huge veins sticking out. The color of the wrapper is not regular.
Very loosely constructed, the cigar is way too soft. Little pieces of tobacco leaves stay on the lips after each puff. Easy burn and even draw but very rare smoke.
In the beginning, the Guantanamera Cristales tasted like a huge cigarette, there was hardly any flavor except for the average quality tobacco smell. The same flavor remained all the way to the last third, where I was pleasantly surprised by a few earthy notes which however didn't change my overall impression.
Do not fall for the price trap and get something better and slightly more expensive.
Overall Rating :
Although some nice flavors appear in the last third, I can't recommend the Guantanamera Cristales. Not only this cigar looks quite ugly, you will also have to fight with the construction problems.
