Produced in Cuba for Habanos SA, the Cuban state-owned tobacco company, Quintero cigars are the epitome of quality. The Quintero cigar brand was born in 1924 as Quintero Y Hermanos (or Quintero and Brothers), when Agustín Quintero and his four brothers began manufacturing handmade cigars in Cienfuegos, Cuba, out of a small factory they opened. One of the few brands created outside of Havana, the tobacco used for Quintero cigars comes from the Vuelta Abajo and Semi Vuelta regions, home to some of the world’s finest tobaccos. A pre-Revolution brand, Quintero offers ranges that comprise medium-strength cigars handmade with a short filler blend.
The brand quickly found commercial success in Cuba and abroad (especially Spain, where Quintero cigars became extremely popular), and the brothers began creating several sizes of cigars. By the 1940s, the company opened a larger rolling factory in Havana, which helped Quintero Y Hermanos to grow their sales. The Quintero brand switched to machine-made cigars after Fidel Castro nationalised the cigar industry, and then returned to its handmade origins in 2002.
The Quintero Range – Handmade Luxury
Quintero cigars are unusual among their Cuban counterparts, as the popular blend tends to possess a herbal flavour with a sweet aftertaste. This unique characteristic makes them sought-after by many and a fantastic everyday option for both the connoisseur and the beginner. Overflowing with delicious flavours that don’t overwhelm the palate, and with smooth yet spicy tones, Quintero smokes are truly remarkable. Totalmente a mano (or totally handmade), Quintero is perfect for anyone seeking the authentic taste of Cuba rolled by skilled artisans. If you are looking for a reliable cigar with fantastic balance, Quintero may just be the perfect option for you.
