Quintero is one of the least known Cuban cigar marcas. Among several vitolas that are available, I found the Londres Extra, a 4.8 x 40 mareva, to be the most interesting. At approximately $3 each (online), the price/quality ratio is particularly interesting. Quintero Londres Extra are usually well-constructed, with a self-correcting burn, easy draw and ample smoke. The flavor is bold (wood, leather) and consistent from start to finish, I would classify this as a medium- to full-bodied smoke. The cigar might taste ‘green’ if it is less than 6 months old; the recommended aging time is 1-2 years.
