    I’d give Cuban Quinteros a thumbs down, doesn’t matter how cheap they are – essence of farmyard. I’ve had many ‘cheap’ moments when I just can’t afford any other Cuban I’ve gone for Brevas or Nacionals – and regretted it every time. Don’t let a Quintero be your first Cuban cigar it will give you a totally wrong impression.

    Also to mention they are machine bunched but ‘hand finished’.

    I’ve seen these and always wondered what they were like. Thanks for the review!

    I do agree with the thumbs up review. Have smoked a couple of them and they’re really good for their price. Not my favorite cuban, of course, but might save you in a cigar-craving emergency for sure.

    First, the price is unbeatable. I am in Canada so we get hosed on everything we buy, still you can grab one of these for around $7. Not the nicest looking cigar, unfortunately.
    The smoke is good in every way. Nice draw and burns relatively even although a little on the fast side I thought. Very tasty from the beginning. A nice daytime stogie for a walk in the park. Excellent value.

    they say you can’t polish a turd, but these age fairly well, so there must be some quality in there somewhere.

    It’s a matter of personal taste. I’ve tried all kinds from the most expensive to the cheapest cuban cigar out there, and surprisingly, Quinteros are now the only one for me. Love the real tobacco flavor, not too spicy, and goes well with a bottle of rum. Don’t listen to the negative comments and try it yourself to make you own opinion. I did.

    Mr Gomes, you are right same experience here.
    Yesterday an H. Upman Sir Winston, day before yesterday Romeo y Julieta Churchill but Marca Fina Panama Gigantes (Panama tobacco) and the Quintero Panatella, Brevas and Nacionales gave me the same smoking pleasure.

    Had one of these from a sampler pack. No problem with machine bunched/hand finished, given the price. Decent taste/flavour. Very uneven burn. OK for a cheaper Cuban smoke.

    Excellent from the point of view of value for money. Quintero still gives you the pleasure of smoking a good cuban cigar at a very affordable price.

    These are great stoges. And the price. I think you should get a box and settle them for a week in your humidor before cruising through them. They go quick and you can let a friend “try a Cuban”..
