Overlooked Cuban Lines


I was thinking about this the other day. What are some the overlooked Cuban lines of cigars that are great, but just don't have the name notoriety. What I noticed is that most of the famous ones I tried, have a non-Cuban counterpart. Usually these aren't close to their Cuban namesakes.

My personal favorite overlooked line is the Quintero y Hermano Brevas. These are machine rolled I think, but aged enough and they are great. Suggestions of names and vitolas are appreciated.

I'd say Rafael Gonzalez (Perlas are the best of current production, but my favorite were the Lonsdales), Juan Lopez (these have actually gotten better in recent production), and Ramon Allones (Specially Selected and Superiores).


Lobstah; the other white meat!
Of the ones never mentioned I'd have to say El Rey del Mundo, Choix Supreme is my favorite by far.

Edit because I can't spell!


I am guessing the Perla is the way to go? It seems with these lines that have less notierty, the smaller vitolas are the best.
Perlas are short filler and are quite popular on other forums, but I've only had a PC and really enjoyed it.

Pancho Sanchez-especially their piramides. Dark, almost maduro wrapper, fairly strong and smooth as .smill

I know you mentioned Quintero, but the Favorito is a robusto size. JLP, the Petite Cazadores has been consistent for me.
