When it comes to Cuban cigars, we don’t know if we should praise them or criticize them. There is plenty of things to complain about, but on the other hand, Habanos has shown some sheer brilliance.
Let’s start with the criticism. First of all, there’s a lack of quality control. Some factories in other countries test hundred percent of their production with a drawmaster machine to ensure each and every single cigar has a perfect draw. Yet on Cuba, an average of four percent of the total production is being tested. And on the whole island, there are less Drawmaster machines than in a factory like Joya de Nicaragua.
