This is a hidden gem in Quepos. The cigars were delightful, the owner was very helpful and the humidor is well stocked with a nice variety of hand rolled beuties. more »
During our stay in MA, we bussed into Quepos to explore. I happened to think about cigars and found this thanks to TA. The store we went to is by the bay front (across of the colorful QUEPOS sign... more »
This store sells their own brands which won't win any awards any time soon, but are still very enjoyable. The construction is superb while the blends are forgettable. The prices are reasonable, and overall, I'd recommend!
Very nice staff and very clean and organized shop. Been there a while I think. Mainly sell their own rolls. One a nica/Ecuadorian blend. Prices seem in line. Then they have a Cuban leaf. I bought the Cuban leaf premium medium HOC Maduro. Probably a 54x6. Expensive at 20 US dollars. The cigar is well made. Nice veins and beautifully done cap. Lights well. The burn is a little off but it isn’t your normal Cuban. Needs a little aging. Way stronger than anything your going to get from Cuba. Smokes like a Nicaragua stick actually. The burn is a little white for a Cuban. More magnesium than normal. But its too close to tell for sure. The burn doesn’t really correct itself. Flavor is good, full for sure. Nice amount of smoke. Strong tobacco flavor, little nutty flavor in the middle. Nice dark chocolate flavor. Black pepper in the beginning then fades. The burn gets a little worse but it’s holding together. Overall a nice smoke. Smokes for about 45 minutes to a hour. More like a 10 buck stick in my mind but a good smoke. 88 to 89 score if you follow that kind of thing. I’d buy again at 10 dollars. Give the shop A plus for service. I wish I would have bought one of the less expensive cigars to compare their other house brand tonthis one.
