    Nice looking cigar – IMO; and interesting review. I like the petit(e) corona format. Unfortunately plugged/difficult to draw can occur across all brands on occasion. But look forward to trying a 5-pack of these.

    My review of the Quesada Tributo (Alvaro 6×52 Torpedo)

    Appearance & Construction: The Quesada Tributo is an amazing looking cigar, one of the best I have seen in a while. The chocolate brown colored wrapper has very minimally sized veins and a light sheen of oil. The cigar is ultra smooth to the touch and is solidly constructed.

    Smoking Characteristics: The Quesada Tributo has a nice even draw that produces a satisfactory amount of smoke. The burn is pretty uneven and required some touch-ups along the way but nothing major. From the bad burn came a chunky ash that I was forced to get tap off along the way so I was never really able to make an assessment on the strength of the ash.

    Flavor: The Quesada Tributo starts out with a nice clean spice and some wood. The spice is not black pepper, rather a clean heat like cayenne pepper. Once the cigar settles in notes of espresso, cocoa, nutmeg and cinnamon add to the woodsy core of this cigar. The cigar has a very complex profile and the flavors are very round and synergistic. The second third adds some leather to the core of the cigar while the nuances still remain the same. On the final third of the cigar, things change up a bit. The body becomes heavier and the flavors change to more of a dried fruitiness and toasted wood. The body of the Quesada Tributo is medium to full while the nicotine strength is a bit stronger than your average cigar.

    Final Thoughts: What a cigar! Complex, balanced and a great flavor profile for the Quesada Tributo Alvaro.

    Everything went together so well with this cigar and the flavor changes throughout the cigar were enough to keep me on my toes and typing away. I will say I was a little disappointed with the burn of the cigar, however some time in the humidor should shore up those problems; but what a nice smoke.

    Cigar Rating: Very Good
