Quintero's smooth, medium bodied taste makes it ideal for those
seeking to experience the taste of Habanos at an affordable price.
It is one of the few Habanos brands not born in Cuba's capital city,
Havana. Instead its founder Agustin Quintero with his four brothers set
up shop in the south coast city of Cienfuegos, known as the "Pearl of
the South". Then as now all the tobaccos selected for Quintero came
from the Vuelta Abajo region, home of the finest tobaccos in the world.
Most Quinteros are made by the ‘totalmente a mano, tripa corta'
-totally hand made, short filler - method but one, the Purito, is
‘mecanizado' - machine made.
