Cuban Quintero Brand Gets New Size

Gregory Mottola
Posted: April 20, 2012

The handmade, short filler Cuban brand Quintero now has a thick new size: Favoritos. The heftiest cigar in the brand’s line-up, Favoritos is Quintero’s fifth size and measures 4 1/2 inches long by 50 ring, a unique vitola referred to as Concha No. 2 in Cuban factories.

According to the official press release from Cuban cigar distributor Habanos S.A., the Favoritos is made with tobacco cultivated from the Vuelta Abajo and Semi Vuelta zones of Cuba’s Pinar del Río growing region.

Quintero is one of the few Cuban brands that was not created in Havana. Rather, it started in Cienfuegos, a city on Cuba’s southern coast known as the “Pearl of the South.”

Billed as a medium-strength smoke, Favoritos will come in 5-packs and are scheduled to hit worldwide retail in a few weeks.

Any word as to which countries will be selling them? I haven't seen them anywhere yet.
