Cuchillos Cubanos ~40~


Sorry folks, I have to interrupt our usual programing. Tune in next week for your weekly dose of “The Tower of Burn”. Instead, grab a smoke and sit back with “The Great Torpedo”.

This week, I’m here with a relatively new but not very publicized cigar from Dion Giolito. If you didn’t know, Dion is the mastermind behind the “CRUZ”ado and Illusione cigar lines. The Cuchillos Cubanos ~40~ is Dion’s first footprint into the budget line of cigars.

Video runs around 12 minutes and while the Cuchillos Cubanos may skimp on the price tag, there is no skimping in quality or flavor. Unless you’re a professional, it probably won’t enter your mind that its a mixed filler cigar. Not your traditional mixed filler though. Dion uses long and medium (instead of short) filler tobacco for the Cuchillos Cubanos. In these economic times, I think Dion is ahead of the curve as I think more and more manufacturers will start a similar trend.

Summary – With a balanced flavor profile that magically transitions from one flavor to another, I think Dion has a sleeper of a cigar on his hands with the Cuchillos Cubanos in his stable of cigars.

  1. Great review Jerry.. As I told you on twitter..I’ve smoked the 46 and had pretty much the exact same experience as you…Though the cocoa kicked in a little eariler for me..about 1 inch in or so..But you can’t beat the price point on this stick..anyone who like thr reg. Illusione line should try this wont be disappointed..
    Thanks for all your super reviews Jerry..

  2. Super review. Looking forward to finding a couple packs here locally. Price point and flavor = happy cigar smoker! πŸ™‚


  3. I’m gonna have to see about picking some of these up! I dont think it would be a daily smoke for me as i tend to smoke more being home all the time, so I stick with the $3 and under sticks πŸ˜‰

    Sounds like a great smoke! Awesome review!


    Thanx for calling me beautiful, you stud. :p

  4. Very good review. I’m still tossing around audio/video reviews myself for longashes but not sure yet. Sounds like I might have to pick me up some of these though 4 bucks a stick is still kind of pricey for me for an everyday smoke (of course when I have good cigars in my humidor I end up smoking all of those first anyways πŸ™‚ )

    Thanks for the review of this stick. Lately I’ve been looking for smaller cigars for a lunchtime smoke or for a quick smoke when I lack time. Price is a key factor as well. I’ll have to look these up.

  6. Picked a couple of these up at the B&M on a whim and came home to find they were way overpriced in comparison to NHC. I sulked for awhile and threw them in the humi. Picked one out a couple of days later still fuming. Yike! It was worth what I paid!!! I’m going to put an order in for a bunch more. This is the best new smoke I’ve had in a long time. Freaking delicious, and on my budget, an amazing find. Dion is my new hero. Well, you too Jerry πŸ˜‰ love the vid reviews man.
