Cusano LXI Habano Sun Grown

Up for review today is the Cusano LXI Habano Sun Grown. Their website doesn’t have a lot of information, other then saying “Still double wrapped.” Other then that, all I know about this cigar is that I purchased it at a random local shop. I paired this cigar with water, and here are my thoughts.


Wrapper: Habano-seed Ecuadorian and Dominican

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Size: Preferido 5 3/4 x 58

Price: Around $6.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had a rough look, with a few medium sized veins and a toothy appearance. It had a sweet odor or cedar, as did the foot. Overall, the cigar was tightly and evenly packed. This led to a draw that was on the snug side, and bordered on being annoying. The pre-light draw had a mild and woody/earthy flavor.

The burn required one minor correction, and the ash held for just over an inch. About the draw… It opened up a bit as I got to the middle, larger ring gauge portion of the cigar.



The first third had a woody core, black coffee, and an interesting, almost fruity flavor. When passing smoke through the nose, there was only a hint of spice. The flavors started out pretty mild, but after about an inch or so, the body increased to a more enjoyable level.


The second third kept that woody, coffee core. The fruitiness took a turn to something more sweet tasting. A hint of earthiness lurked in the background. The pepper increased in strength a little when passing smoke through nose.


The last third didn’t bring anything new to the table. The only difference was in the body and strength. It increased slightly, but still fell in the middle of medium. The smoke feel became thicker and left a slight tingle on the lips. Otherwise, the flavors were the same.



This was a decent medium bodied cigar. Will I seek out more? Probably not. It just seemed like the flavor profile was thin if that makes sense. I’m sure someone out there would enjoy this cigar. I enjoyed it, but I don’t know… There really wasn’t anything bad to report, but it was just decent and nothing more.
