Quintero Cigars

Pre-Revolution History Quintero Cigars

In 1924 Agustin Quintero and his brother established a factory in Cienfuegos, a southern coastal town west of Pinar del Rio.

It is believed the brand was created in the same year but the exact date of registration is unclear.

Augustin Quintero was a tobacco expert. His ability to choose the best 100% Vuelta Abajo tobacco soon made the brand a favourite among the Spanish people. At the time of the Revolution, it was already a major export brand. The main market was Spain.

Post-Revolution History

Production remained uninterrupted after the Revolution.

Circa late 1970, the models offered in production were simplified to 10 models, 6 hand-made models: Brevas, Churchills, Coronas, Coronas Selectas, Media Coronas, and Media Coronas Selectas, together with 4 machine-made models.

Characteristics of Quintero Cigars

Quintero cigars are characterized by a raw, robust tobacco taste. The early taste is even more pronounced than Bolivar and Partagas. In addition, there is a strong grassy flavor not found in Bolivar and Partagas. The combination of strong earthiness and the grassy flavor creates a ”countryside” feel, the smell of native soil. This feel is unique and can only be found in Quintero cigars.

Young Quintero cigars have a characteristic bitter and tannic taste not suitable for everyone, but the Spanish and Cuban obviously like these tastes.
