This week Max Foulkes has chosen the Cuaba Divinos as his cigar of the week, read on to find out why.
This week’s cigar of choice often finds itself at my disposal when time is not. The Cuaba Divinos (Petit Bouquet 43x101) permits enjoyment of THE archetypal medium-full bodied Cuban flavour on a tight shift. With only a 25 minute window and the intention of obscuring one’s view from it with smoke, a Divinos can be ignited and enjoyed to its full extent. A well-balanced concoction of flavours I’d previously thought unique to Bolivar and Trinidad fills a small pocket of time in a way in which I hope more will come to enjoy. Production is low but ‘shelf life’ is long as many are dissuaded from its acquisition by its outmoded appearance. Double Figurados are hugely unpopular, let alone ones this small!
Thankfully, the Petit Bouquet’s construction matches the the quality of its blend. Firm to the touch draw like a pencil, producing a smoke that remains cool despite its unusually short journey from ‘Boquilla’ to palate. Sitting comfortably between my fingers, perching effortlessly between my lips, this ‘divine’ cigar will spend your infrequently spare 25 minutes minutes wisely. I’ve yet to find myself disappointed.
