If you are looking for an authentic Cuban cigar experience, Jose L. Piedra cigars will definitely give you the smoking experience you are looking for. Known for their mild to medium body, they provide a satisfying aroma for any cigar smoker. Their spicy and earthy flavour give you that typical Cuban cigar experience, which is why they are particularly popular in their home country.

The Piedra family came to Cuba in the 1880s from Spain and settled near the town of Santa Clara, where tobacco has been grown since the 16th Century, and started to make cigars. The family’s second generation led by Jose Lamadrid Piedra, whose name is commemorated today, founded and developed the brand.
Despite some outdated websites stating otherwise, Jose L. Piedra cigars are no longer machine made but are in fact made using the Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Corta. Translated this means ‘totally hand made, short filler’ technique which offers a medium to full flavour.
Initially launched in the 19th century, the brand has been producing cigars for well over 100 years now. They offer an enjoyable smoke for both beginners and more experience aficionados due to their high-quality tobacco. They make excellent anytime cigars and are great for having in reserve in your humidor.
