Review: Jose L. Piedra Cazadores Long Corona

             Jose Piedra.  To me, the name piques my imagination to a place where seedy third world gangsters are trafficking dope and carrying AK47’s.  Other times, I picture a farmer, poor but content, living off the land and happy with his stogie, rum, and family close by.  I really want to get drunk on mojitos with Jose and Sancho Panza, but that might get me placed in a Cuban jail.  Enough rambling, this is the final leg of the cheapo challenge Seth and I are doing with the Partagas Mille Fluer, Por Larranaga, Flor de Cano, and the Piedra Cazadores.  In the past, I had enjoyed Piedra cigars as chew sticks and yard gars, but I had always opted for smaller sizes then the Cazadores.  Amongst the Habanos faithful, this always seemed to be the size folks talked about, so I figured it would be best for us to include.  Since it is a short filler, I kept this to a first half and second half review.

Over the last 5-6 years I have probably smoked 3 dozen shortfiller CC's, some aged some fresh and I can tell you that I have not smoked one that was even close to enjoyable (IMO). My favorite cheap CC has to be the recent production Rafael Gonzalez Perla, those have been super tasty and only need a year of age to shake the youth ('12's are smoking very nice), I grabbed a 10 pack of Dec. 2012's for $30. Killer dark/oily wrapper on them.

I knew these were cheap sticks, I really enjoy the PLPC's though, just I've have never enjoyed the Jose L Piedra, I just chalked them up to being fresh and needed more rest, because I am not that versed in cc's yet. I have had a few that had some age on them that were fantastic and some that were so fresh they were just boring......it's such a game with cc's, but this makes more sense now...they are cheapies......my "ah ha light bulb" just came on.
