Ok this is probably a name that you don’t know.  The company has been making and selling cigars in Europe for many years and only last year did it start knocking on U-S doors.  The cigars are made in Danli, Honduras at the company’s factory.  This year at the trade show they upped their presence.  Most of the company’s cigars are medium bodied and fairly reasonably priced.

The lightest one is the Tabacalera Zapata which uses a Connecticut seed grown in Honduras for the wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Honduras, Nicaragua and Mexico.  It is considered a mild to medium smoke, perhaps good for the morning.  It comes in 5 sizes from a 5.625” x 46 Corona, to a 5” x 50 Robusto, a 6” x 52 Toro, a 55” x 54 Torpedo and a 6” x 60 Toro Grande.  List prices run between $5 and $8.

The Placeres Reserva is a step up from the Zapata.  It uses a Habano seed grown in Jalapa, Nicaragua over a Costa Rican binder and Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers. It too has 5 sizes : Marevas at 5” x 42; Estrellas at 5” x 50; Belicosos at 5.5” x 52; Colosos at 6” x 54 and the 6” x 60 Toro Grande.  List prices run from just under $6 to just over $8.

The Miro is the strongest cigar with a medium to full body, using Sumatran wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers.  There are 5 sizes, but this one starts with the Momentos at 4” x 48 that was introduced at the show, Robusto at 5.25” x 50, Toros at 6” x 52 Torpedo measuring 6.125” x 52 and Gordos at 6” x 60. List prices run from $6 to $8.

The newest line from Kuuts was its Nicaraguan blend.  Again medium bodied, but with a touch more flavor.  The stick uses a Habano seed grown in Ecuador for the wrapper and then binder and fillers from Nicaragua.  Coming in 5 sizes from the above mentioned Momentos, to a Pequeño at 4.5” x 58, Robusto  5” x 52, Toro 6’ x 52 and a Gordo Especial at 7” x 60. List prices are just under $5 for the Momentos to just under $7 for the big boy.
