Jose L. Piedra Conservas is a very good option for a daily smoke: it is affordable and of great construction.
Despite being a inexpensive cigar, its solid appearance really tells it apart from its competitors, the cheaper Habanos. The wrapper looks nice with a uniform Colorado Claro tone, the seams are tight and at the head the double cap is beautifully applied. The wrapper is also pretty oily, with few veins running at the surface of the wrapper. It feels solid in hands, with just the right amount of give when squeezed. It looks evenly packed from head to toe.
- Hand-rolled cigar using short filler tobacco from the renowned Vuelta Abajo region.
