CuAvana Intenso

Wrapper: Natural

A departure from the mild blends that currently make up the CuAvana line; Intenso is an excellently blended, full-bodied powerhouse comparable to Oliva Serie ‘V’ and Joya de Nicaragua.

The original CuAvana brand was created by legendary cigar producer Manuel Quesada. The idea behind CuAvana was to create a blend that offered an exorbitant amount of flavor, while maintaining a smooth character and a mild body. Fans of CuAvana will agree that the goal was met, with both the natural and maduro versions offering a complexity rarely seen in milder cigars, obtained without sacrificing its mellow characteristics. Recently, enthusiasts across the globe have been seeking out stronger, more robust cigars and therefore it was time to add a full-bodied blend to the CuAvana line. To complete this feat, the reigns were passed to Nestor Plasencia, who developed a tasty, full-bodied treat originating from Honduras.

CuAvana Intenso is not for the faint of heart. This blend is incredibly powerful, offering a ton of complex, spicy flavors with a very long finish. The name suits the power of the blend perfectly, as the initial light is robust and only continues to become more intense as the cigar burns. The filler consists of Panamanian and Nicaraguan ligero tobaccos, all long-leaf, which are concealed by an oily, toothy Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. This combination provides a massive amount of spice, pepper and earth with only a hint of cocoa that rests in the back of the throat. Make no mistake, Intenso was blended with the full-bodied enthusiast in mind and is a fantastic, long awaited addition to the CuAvana brand.
