Jose L. Piedra is a particularly noteworthy Habano not only because its blend is composed of filler tobaccos grown exclusively in the Remedios tobacco region, but also because it is made using the totally hand made, short filler technique. 

The Piedra family came to Cuba in the 1880's from the Spanish province of Asturias. They settled near the town of Santa Clara, which lies at the heart of the Remedios region where tobacco has been grown since the 16th century, and started to make cigars. 

Tasting Notes

This medium-bodied cigar will provide an earthy taste with a great draw and creamy smoke. Hints of salt and tanginess will hit the lips giving an interesting flavour.

I have bought these exact cigars 3 times over the years and whilst they aren't often the best rolled of the Jose L Piedra range I feel the need to write an accurate review of them. Some of those produced aren't rolled correctly (sometimes to tightly, but not overly) but overall I find it crazy that ANY large gauge and large length size smoker hasn't at least given these a go. Iv been smoking Cubans and non Cubans REGULARLY for 15 years and I honestly believe you wont find better bang for your buck than the Jose L Piedra range. I'm not going to name the other high end Cubans I believe this is better than... However, you should really give these a go as although you may get a single bad one out of every 50 that the other 49 would honestly warrant double their price tag.

Not recommended. Kept going out. No flavour. Seemed poor quality.

Cheap, well at first i though so but. A box of 5 so for the money very good but 3 out of the five did not burn right and tasted horrible, afterword i felt as if i had been in a burning building my throat hurt and i had a horrible taste in my mouth. The other 2 were alright but 2 alright cigars for 25.00 aint cheap. I,ll but better quality in fiture, i,m a beginner. I hope future foray's into cuban cigars are more pleasurable. But maybe i'm just very unlucky.

It's been a while since I left my original review of this type and brand of cigar. Since my last post I have 'indulged' in more expensive brands such as Montecristo, Punch, and Romeo Y Julieta. So what's new? Well for a start, the RYJ made me physically throw up! Not a great smoke at all. As for the Punch and Monte, they were ok, but nothing special. I've had several more Piedra's (both Nacionales and Cazadores) and these kick the arse of the above 'premium' brands. They're cheap (too cheap perhaps for a Cuban?) and certainly a lot more than cheerful. In my humble opinion they deserve much more kudos than they currently get. A great smoke from start to finish, though they certainly do benefit from a few months in a humidor/humijar (but what cigar doesn't?). I'm going to order these again- and so will you once you've given them a go!! They're the Cuban worker's cigar of choice, and those guys can't be wrong. Roll on Jose L Piedra, your cigars rock- cheers!! written by Roon, UK

A great cheap cigar. No, it`s not the most complex smoke in the world, no, it`s not the best looking, either, but at half the price (or less) of a "named" Cuban (and considerably better than some I`ve smoked) - this is a fine cigar and a firm favourite. It`s not the kind of cigar to plan a meal around or crack open a bottle of vintage port with - it`s exactly what it`s made for in Cuba - an "every day working mans` cigar". 4/5 for taste, 5/5 for value - just shows you how overpriced most Cubans are. Not for the aficionado - not at aficionado prices, either. Highly recommended. written by Dave Francis
