Recently at my local Habanos cigar Lounge, I came across a few boxes of less popular brands that had been sitting there for a few years, but were still being sold at regular prices.

I took the opportunity to try a 2007 Cuaba Generosos. This was a vitola I'd been meaning to try for a long time. The Generosos is a Perfecto cigar (i.e. pointed at both ends) and is a type of cigar that was popular in the 19th century. Size is 5.2" x 42 and the wrapper is very rustic looking. Construction was good with an even burn throughout.

After clipping off the cap, I torched the foot (which took some practice due to the pointed foot) and took my first puff. Initially, there was not much smoke but as the burn went past the pointy bit, the volume of smoke picked up nicely.

After 5 years of aging, it was nice and smooth, with flavours of chocolate and roast coffee coming through. The finish was sweet and woody. Strength was mild at the start but got stronger as the cigar burnt down.

Overall, this was a very smooth and delicious cigar and I burnt my fingers on this one. I've got another one sitting in my humidor and I'm going to pick up a few more sticks before this patticular box is sold out.

Personally, I like more popular and expensive brands better. Cohibas sure taste better than Cuabas.

if you just want to think, there's nothing better than taking a good cigar

It's all a matter of personal taste. For me the Cuaba was better value than a Cohiba.

I never had the opportunity to taste a Cuaba Generosos but now that I read your review, I would consider smoking at least a couple of them.
Do you think they would get better with time or are they worth trying while young?

Thats right than everyone has its own taste but 2007 Cuaba Generosos is a very old cigar type and it would be of great value and taste. I want to try it out.

Never has a young one but I would think they would be better with a few years of age on them.

It's a quite young brand but it is good - as an everyday smoking choice. And, as it comes from its name, this is a very generous cigar when it comes to aroma and taste. Nice review, kwsaw63, as always.

I'm sitting here right now enjoying my first Cuaba Distinguidos, which is larger (6 2/5" and 52 ring).  I just received two boxes of ten from MyCubanCigars about 9 days ago or so.

It's a SEP 2012 and I believe it's too young.  Flavor is not there yet, and it keeps going out on me.  But the aroma when I opened the box was HEAVEN.

I think I'll give it another few years before I smoke the other 19 of them.

I've got a 2007 box of 25 of the Hoyo De Monterey double coronas that I'll be trying soon.

Also have several other boxes of Cubans about the same age of various brands/sizes.  I've got 28 of Cohiba Siglo VI's that are 2007.  Never really liked them (I know, I must  be weird) but will try another one soon.

Just had one of my 2006 Romey Y Julietta petit coronas the other day, and it was GREAT.

Rod, try dry boxing the Cuaba's for a better burn. You may want to smoke 1 stick every 6 months or so to see how they are progressing.

Thanks kwsaw63.  I know just enough about Cuban cigars to get myself in trouble.  LOL!! 

So...what is "dry boxing"?  I assume you mean storing them at a little less humidity.  That would make sense.

Yes dry boxing means taking the cigar out of the humidor and leaving it a lower humidity environment for about 24 hours.
