It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Eddie Ortega and his cigars, going back as far as the REO. While I haven’t gotten around to sampling any of his Wild Bunch series, I have enjoyed the heck out of the Serie D line. At the show Ortega Cigars re-released the Cubao line, and I smoked No. 5 Friday evening, at least I think that’s what it was. I should have measured it because there’s still some confusing information on the internet about this line. Many retailers still list this as an EO Brands line. It’s still made by Pepin Garcia in Nicaragua in the same blend as before. Sumatra wrappers aren’t always my first choice, but this is a darned tasty and perfectly constructed cigar. I certainly look forward to smoking more in this line.
