Can there still be Havana tobacco from the crop of 1959? Personally, I think there’s a better chance of me playing center field for the Yankees next season… but what do I know; I’ve only been doing this my entire freakin’ life. Anyway, we were offered a 6.00 x 50 toro-sized cigar that was actually made in San Antonio, Texas, by the nation’s oldest cigar factory, and they (not me) claim these cigars are made with vintage 1959 Havana tobacco that was bought from the Wally Frank Company years and years ago. That claim struck a bell somewhere in my head and that’s why I decided to buy these up. The “bell” was the fact that I remembered that Wally Frank, an old-time New York retailer, owned a cigar factory in Kingston, NY, where he made these Havana-filler cigars in the 1970s... so maybe these guys are on the up and up. In any event, it’s worth a try just to see what the heck this stuff is. And, at these prices for a box of 25, whaddaya got to lose?

Can there still be Havana tobacco from the crop of 1959? I dont know, but thats what JR says so Bought some. Let me tell you, Ive smoked many Cubans in my life. They have a very unique flavor. The same as these! So I guess, the answer is YES! I loved them .. I also loved the price. In fact Im gonna stock my humidor before these gems are permanently out of stock.

Wow! Cuban tobacco!
When I first saw these on the website, I was very skeptical. Cmon, Cuban tobacco from 1959? Let me just say I have smoked many Cuban cigars in my life and I know the unique taste of Havana leaf. These will never replace my premium smokes but I gotta tell you, these were quite a treat and the aged Cuban leaf is delightful. Now Im a believer! I guess I better grab a few more boxes before they run out.

Havana Blend
Uneven burn. Flavor, almost none I have smoked some good pre embargo cigars and this tastes nothing like those, but it does taste better than most cheap mixed filler smokes, even a few JR sells for more than this one. So you can tell your friends its pre embargo but it looks machine made, Which it probably is. Better than a AyC but a Cuban Partagas or Hoyo it is not.
