I am starting off another series review for your enjoyment. This time it is going to be the house blends. All of these will be in the robusto size (5 x 50).

Seventh one is the Cuban Label.


Giving this Cuban Label the once over and the wrapper is very neat looking by having different shades going through the roll lines, which you can see in the video hopefully.

Scent on this cigar is just a tobacco smell and the cold draw is a musty tobacco

Burn baby burn.

First Half

Starting off this Cuban Blend and most of the flavor is an earthy taste with a hint of spice and even some of the same musty tobacco taste I got on the cold draw. I have that musty taste in every one of my notes so I am very curious if any of you have gotten that also.

Most of the flavor in this first half has been changing between earthy and woody. I am gettting a slight hint of spice, sometimes a little blast, but nothing overwhelming.

Seems right around the halfway point the spice has picked up a little more consistantly. Let’s see if it holds through the end or picks up more.

I would say it is a high-mild to low-medium body through most of the first half.

Second Half

Starting the second half of this Cuban Label and I am hoping the spice does not take too much of a turn upwards. Still a medium body on this stick but it is a solid medium now.

Body is definitely in the full range in this second half.

Spice did not ramp up like i thought it might nor did it in any of the previous ones I have smoked, it actually seemed to decrease a bit towards the end which is a plus in my book.

Woodsy notes really came out in this second half but not much else was going on.


Final words on this Cuban Label are that it is a full bodied stick with a little bit of spice and a lot of woodsy notes in the end. Really is not much else to say about it as with all of the lower priced sticks, you do not get the various flavor nuances like in some of the high priced fare.

Would I buy it again? Maybe. I might keep some on hand for those occasions I feel like having a plain full bodied cigar but those are few and far between.
