2012 Quintero Favoritos (TVQVRW)

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of vitola choices with the Quintero marca.    I agree that the Panatelas and the thinner ring guages are more reliable.    I have found the Favoritos very inconsistent--ranging from the occasional Partagas-like flavor bombs to tasteless duds (and most somewhere in between) in the same box.

Yes, I realise I may be one of the few people on this planet who decided to age these!

  I wasn't blown away by these when they first came out.

To the point account of the Favoritos, Captain! I am a fan, dig them aged, too. Quite like you report, they didn't convince me when they first came out, but that was a mere matter of their youth. Meanwhile I've had not few QFs give the odd long-filler robo a run for its money. Honest stick. You don't expect much evolution from such a format anyway, so TC - TL doesn't really matter.

One of the most rewarding cigars in terms of aging in my book is the Brevas. So, I don't find it at all odd aging Quinteros.

  I think I've half a dozen 2003 brevas left, by far the most oily cigars I own, like they have been dipped in olive oil! They are almost like Toscanos, seriously rustic and rich 

  I'm always impressed with Cuban short fillers to be honest; all of the old mille fleur (RA, RyJ, Partagas) are still great smokes with tons of character.

My favorite cigar, not the best but cheap enough to make up for it. Cant beat cheap and good.

  There's really something to be said for the brand, for the first 2-3 years all I smoked was Quintero, and not just for the price! I'd gone through all the lower/medium end cigars in the catalogue (RyJ cedros, Upmann Tubos, Bolivar #3 etc) and came out with enjoying the flavours from Quintero the most. I look back at that time in my smoking journey as one of my most content and relaxed times
