Lighter bodied, smooth and if well rolled, the cigar draws nicely developing earthy, rawer, slightly pungy flavors, a solid, native, more rustic Cuban cigar at a very fair price. Really nice flavour, ubelieavably sweet tasting and very smooth. The cigar draws very nicely and is a great smoke.
Simple and linear, the flavor is tobacco. Construction can be a bit on the shabby side, but the smoke is pretty consistent. JLP’s are known for their pleasant aroma and strong and typically Cuban taste. Using tobacco from the fine tobacco-growing region of Vuelta Arriva (Sancti Spiritus Province), the brange keeps their price down through simple cardboard packages and cellophane-wrapped bundles, as well as being rolled by machine, instead of the much higher cost (but also higher regarded) process of rolling the cigars by hand.
