Cu-Avana Intensus Cigars
Almost Darwinian in its ability to filter out the weaker members of the cigar-smoking herd, the Cu-Avana Intensus is a potent and value-laden smoke full of rich flavor. If the name seems somewhat familiar, this is the same upgraded Cu-Avana created by Nestor Placencia, who took over from Manuel Quesada when fans of the regular Natural and Maduro lines started asking for a stogie with a little more of a hit to the palate. And boy did he deliver. Using a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper as his starting point, Placensia paired it with nothing but long leaf ligero filler from Nicaragua and Peru, all of it aged and fermented to remove any harsh bitterness.
Once the cigar is lit the tongue becomes coated with a smooth oakiness, a thick earthiness, hints of coffee, and a bit of caramel sweetness with offers a pleasing respite from the otherwise powerful spiciness that is the primary character. While the consistent flavor and strength of the Cu-Avana Intensus are the best parts of the experience, equally impressive is the great CigarPlace.net price which starts at less than $3 per cigar when bought by the box. Think of it as a value Joya De Nicaragua Antano or even My Uzi Weighs A Ton. Good now but great with a bit of rest, stock up now and tuck them away for a rainy day.
