Genuine Pre-Embargo C.C. Edicion Limitada

1958 Sesenta · 6 × 60 ELSE5

(49 Reviews) | Write a review

Handcrafted in Nicaragua to mirror the extremely popular (and astronomically priced) dark-wrapped Cuban cigars introduced by Habanos S.A., the Genuine Pre-Embargo Counterfeit Cuban Edición Limitada 1958 Sesenta cigars are robust, spicy, smooth, and aromatic – and the closest thing to the real deal. The deep, chocolate-brown wrappers are both great-tasting and great-looking! Buy a 5-pack of these Cuban cigar copycats to try on the JR Cigar website.

Big and Bold

Alaska Cigar Guy on 08/24/17

Took a chance and I'm glad I did. Solid construction, no burn issues. Good flavor but not over the top. I will add these to the humi again.

Great Smoke! Need to improve construction.

KJG on 07/08/17

Love the flavor. Good draw. However, bought a box a couple of months ago. Surprized that 1/3 of them unraveled half way through. Thought it was something I did, however I had an Excalibur #1 in the same humidor for the last 6 months, not a problem. Last month, bought some 5 packs 10% have unraveled. When these cigars hold together they are worth a finger burn (hey, I want my money's worth). Have to say, I really get a kick out of telling people what I'm smoking when they ask. It is a great name.

So close to Cuban

john strobel on 07/04/17

Very good cigar but not perfect. Even after a few weeks in humidor the gar has a tendency to start breaking up about 2/3 the way down. Hate gars that unravel

Jam on 06/04/17

Great smoke out put, almost looks like you were vaping. A litte on the firm side for my preference, but not too bad. Love the flavor

Good cigars, alittle pricey.

AaronB on 04/29/17

I bought these when I visited the store years ago. Have thought about buying them many times since but the price has gone up significantly since. I bought these to make up to a price for freebies. I like them, just not for the price point.

Don't bother looking for a better smoke!

61bird on 08/13/17

Been smoking these for years. I have too often strayed and tried other brands both cheaper and higher priced, only to come back to these Cuban knockoffs! By far the best cigar for the money if your looking for a large gauge cigar in medium to full strength.

Disappointment

Smokeum on 12/22/16

Disappointed with this cigar. Dried out wrappers cracked from the start. My buddies that are big Maduro cigar smokers thought it was weak. The wrappers we're not oily and dried out. The wrappers were cracking before the cigar was lit. I have 2 left will leave them in the humidor and see if they get better. My first disappointment from JR Cigars in 3 years.

Great smoke.

Chabol on 11/02/16

First cigar I smoked I didn't like. The second and third were great. I really liked this cigar. I am a punch smoker with an occasional LaGloria series 5. I found this cigar a very happy and enjoyable smoke. Would consider it very good. Flavor tasty and smooth. Wish each cigar lasted longer.

Bad wrap

Fish on 10/30/16

I tried a five pack of these before I bought a box. The five pack was very good so I bought the box of 25. Opening the box, I discovered many of the cigars with the wrapper coming off and several with serious blemishes. Those are on the way back. It is a decent cigar, but was disappointed with the quality.

Disapointed

mp on 06/08/16

Good cigar but like others have said there have been some dry and peeling wrappers. When you raise the price and quality drop? That is telling me to find another cigar provider.

A Solid Smoke-Update

fatcat on 06/03/16

This cigar has become one of my "go-to" sticks. Earlier they had some construction problems (loose wrappers) which seem to have been fixed with recent purchases. Flavor has always been top-notch for me. I always give them a few days in the humidor but I could smoke them right out of the box. Burn is medium slow and I have seldom hit a hard spot. For the money they are tops. I would spend more for these.

One year update

Da Critta on 05/17/16

Ok, its been one year and I gotta say these are one of my regular "good ones". I just got done smoking a premium cigar that I had to dispose of after it unravelled to the point of being unsmokable and I reached for my Pre-Embargo (ELSE25). Comparing the two, I had to give an update: The draw is easy and the taste is strong. The construction is great and stays lit with a long ash that falls at about one inch, sometimes longer. Im buying another box or two instead of the premiums that were twice as expensive and were a headache.
