WRAPPER: Connecticut Medio Tiempo BINDER: Honduras FILLER: Dominican Republic/Honduras
Before the Cuban trade embargo, Belinda Cigars was a beloved brand from Havana Bay. Re-launched in 1987 by Estelo Padron, the re-envisioned company quickly gained a reputation as the value-priced alternative to traditional Cuban style cigars. Continuing the legacy, the Belinda Black is a more flavorful, spicier version of their well-received classic blend.
This dark cigar is hand rolled with Dominican fillers, a Honduran Binder and a sun-drenched Connecticut Medio Tiempo wrapper to ensure a bold adventure for your palate. As it burns, the Belinda Black develops a mild spiciness as notes of creamy espresso and earthy nuts highlight the lush, rich smoking experience all the way through.
The Belinda Black is an excellent cigar with an audacious attitude that is sure to become a staple in any enthusiast’s humidor.
Featured Customer Reviews for BELINDA BLACK
One of my top 3
I love the Belindas as they are always a smooth, consistent smoke. I know I will always get a good 45 minutes out of the Epicure and it is always outstanding. While it starts off without much flavor, as you get about an inch in, the cigar starts to treat you to the flavor and it stays that way till the end. I have never had one get too hot, or burn unevenly. Great all around smoke if you are a beginner or expert.
The Forgotten Gem!
I smoked these cigars when they first came out many years ago. I guess you can tell that Im a longtime JR Customer. Anyway, with the avalanche of new brands that flooded the market in the last few years, I found myself wanting to try just about everything that came in Maduro. So anyway, just recently I decided to give these another ride .. And WOW! They are better than ever! I guess they sit on the shelves and age for a long time because these were smooth as silk and the maduro wrapper was loaded with blume and tasted like chocolate! Hey Belinda Black, Im back and will be ordering many more boxes of these!
This cigar was too tightly rolled with a poor draw. Its maduro wrapper was attractive but bland. The ash did not hold more than an inch and fell off repeatedly after a half inch. The flavor was mild to medium at best and did not have any fullness of flavor or spiciness whatsoever. I bought a box of 20 Prominentes and ended up giving most of them away to contractors and subordinates.
