A Hidden Treasure: Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 1

Submitted by Oliver on July 5, 2013 – 1:54 amNo Comment

When I picked up this cigar from my humidor yesterday – to experience some pleasant after dinner moments – a sudden thought hit my mind: why is Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 1 underrated and underestimated so often? What’s the reason, considering that it could compete with such brands as Cohiba and Montecristo? The taste is great and the price could beat plenty of Cuban cigars, with approximately $7 price for a stick. Well, now that you know it is great, let me tell you the whole truth about Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 1! :)

Did you know that this brand is one of the oldest among its Cuban siblings and was established in 1876 by a Spanish businessman Juan Lopez Diaz, the founder of the Flor de Juan Lopez factory? However, almost a century ago, it was nationalized by the Cuban Government, after the 1960′s Revolution and is now occupying a niche of a marca locale, or a local marque.

The cigar looks absolutely amazing! It has that special rustic look with a light brown color that I often prefer to the smooth surface of a Cohiba Behike. :) The pre-draw is a mixture of woody and earthy odor, and is very pleasant to the nose.

Though the first third produced floral nuances and also some sugar, honey and citrus notes at the beginning, this cigar is mostly about wood and spiciness. It may seem difficult to smoke, especially, for beginners, but it is not, I assure you! Everyone with a craving for spice and wood will like it: the beginners – for its creamy structure and almost no burning issues; the aficionados – for its rich taste, mighty flavors and full body.

I used to buy Cuban cigars from different sources till I found www.cigars-for-you.com. These guys are great and I would like to thank them for always providing me with flawless high-quality Cuban cigar, right in time for me to sample them!  You know that when you find a right place/a right cigar, you stick to it and never change it for another one. What about you? ;)
