This brand in Spanish means, The Cuban Mix, and a first taste of this great new cigar may indicate just that, but it can not be. This blend can not have Cuban tobacco in it. U.S. Laws prohibit the use of Cuban tobacco in blends for U.S. Consumption. So what is it. It is handmade in the Dominican Republic and claims to use an all Nicaraguan blend of tobacco including gorgeous wrapper. The blend is medium bodied in strength but is subtly complex to the trained palate. There is a lot going on here and possibly more than meets the eye. The ash, the burn the taste...It looks like a La Mezcla Cubana to me.
