Cuban Stock Cigar Company: Joya De Havana Figurado #2

Joya De Havana Figurado #2 Since time was limited today, I chose the Joya de Havana figurado #2 from Cuban Stock Cigars because of its smaller size. The Joya de Havana, is crafted from three year aged Cuban seed tobaccos that are grown in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Honduras.

Quick Details

  • Cigar Size: 5 x 48
  • Origin: Dominican Republic
  • Wrapper:  Ecuadorian
  • Binder: Dominican Republic
  • Filler: Dominican Republic & Honduras
  • Price: $8.20. Sample provided by Cuban Stock Cigars

This Joya de Havana figurado #2 was a well crafted cigar. The dark, almost black, oily, Dominican wrapper was rolled on with near perfect skill and was nearly vein free. Testing the cold draw, I found a honey like sweetness from the wrapper to my lips, with the same aroma from the foot.

The flavor profile was nice; the cigar started and finished with a nice full bodied mix of earth, oak and tobacco, but in between there were nuances of barnyard, brown sugar, cocoa, cream, raisins and caramel. As the Joya de Havana figurado burned on, it left behind a firm, light gray ash that held on until the mid point and the burn line was razor sharp.

With a smoking time around 40 minutes, and the great flavor mix, this figurado from Cuban Stock Cigars would make a great after lunch cigar or when ever time is short.

This is top drawer cigar in my book!

I would like to thank Cuban Stock Cigars for providing this sample for review.
