⊗ The Jose L. Piedra Petit Cazadores Cigar is a great addition to the Jose L. Piedra Cigars brand. They’re handcrafted with the finest leaves from the Remedios tobacco region of Cuba – whereby tobacco has been grown since the 16th century. The traditional Tripa Corta Totalmente a Mano technique is used to produce these smokes – meaning short filler totally hand-made.
If you want an affordable everyday Cuban, this is one of them. A substantial Cuban cigar at a very low price. It can’t be bettered for value.
Jose L. Piedra is a particularly noteworthy Habano not only because its blend is composed of filler tobaccos grown exclusively in the Remedios tobacco region, but also because it is made using the Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Corta, or totally hand made, short fillertechnique. The Piedra family came to Cuba in the 1880s from the Spanish province of Asturias. They settled near the town of Santa Clara, which lies at the heart of the Remedios region where tobacco has been grown since the 16th Century, and started to make cigars. The familys second generation led by Jos Lamadrid Piedra, whose name is commemorated today, founded and developed the brand.
