(20 Reviews) | Write a review

A handsome dark brown smoke, the 1999 Condessa Shaped cigar is an exclusive vintage offering by JR Cigars. With a mild-to-medium strength profile, they’re a softer take on the traditional Honduran cigar – but no less the quality or enjoyment. Skillfully handcrafted from a smooth blend of tobaccos, they feature a smooth Connecticut Broadleaf binder and a gorgeous, oily Ecuador Sumatra wrapper. These premium beauties are available in bundles of 10.

Cool shape, mellow smoke.

Steveb on 07/05/15

I love this shape, it feels old fashioned and great in your hand. A lot of smoke in this cigar and it was mellow. A little cedar and nice tobacco flavors. If you like Hoyos grab some of these while they last.

mellow momentum

thebaby981 on 07/08/15

Get the band off these so it doesn't bother the wrapper as the bands are a bit tight. simply remove it before smoking it. Good tobacco taste, very consistent taste profile, slight hints of cedar and earthiness. its a good smoke. I cut most of mine in half so construction hasn't been an issue. Its a mellow smoke with good tobacco taste. A few have had very tight draws to them yet they are not spongy.

Condessas for Ever!!!

Lonemanlooking2 on 07/11/15

Easy draw was the first thing I noticed. I've always enjoyed the Condessa shape. Smooth taste came after the 1st. 1/2 in. and continued until the finish.

horrible cigar

TimR on 04/26/16

Maybe the worst cigar I have ever smoked. May never smoke another Hoya. Draw was almost impossible with a harsh flavor. Cigar fell apart.

About Right

Dano on 08/23/16

These cigars were a good long smoke, not too strong, very ordinary. I thought the wrappers were a little uneven

Its Different

bobbyd on 02/18/17

Felt strange in the hand. Kind of heavy on the head end. I guess because the foot was so narrow. Decent flavor, but glad I didn't pay the full $7 retail price.

Too dry!

radwest on 03/05/17

First cigar was diffidently dry with the outer wrapper cracking where the cigar was being handled. Not impressed. I have added this to my humidor and will age some more with adequate moisture to see if they can be salvaged.

Disappointed Again

TomWesley on 03/09/17

My package of 5 arrived too hard and dry to smoke. I had to borrow another cigar from a friend and put my cigars into the humidor to hope for the best.

OK but...

cecwood on 05/07/17

An awkward shape that didn't seem to add anything to the smoking experience. Almost no detectable flavor w/ a dry finish. Even after a few weeks of aging, no change. Dare I say, "boring"

Very good smoke

Ernesto on 05/10/17

Read many reviews of this cigar and after buying two bundles I think it is just misunderstood because this is a fantastic addition to my humidor. The construction and burn are flawless on every one I had and the mellow taste is complex and enjoyable. A very reflective smoke.

New Everyday Smoke

snsphoto on 05/21/17

The unique shape does not hurt this smoke at all. It is smooth and flavorful from start to finish. Not bitter at all. This is my new everyday smoke. Love it!

Condessa

Ted on 05/24/17

The Hoya is a nice even smoke, but I would not get the condessa again. Felt like I was smoking a cigarillo.
