Quai d’Orsay In The Morning

One of the older Cuban cigars that is still on the scene is Quai d’Orsay.  One morning in Cuba last year, I remember sitting on the balcony of our hotel with a Quay d’Orsay Imperiales and a strong cup of coffee.  What struck me about this cigar was the graceful approach to honey and vanilla that this churchill had to offer.  Some say that it is a perfect morning cigar because of it’s mellowness but take note that there may be a bit more going on here than you might expect.

I found this churchill to be more of a medium strength cigar that developed into a balanced and complex smoke that slowly built into intensity.  Would a seasoned cigar smoker be a devotee of this brand.  I’d say absolutely!!  A veteran smoker enjoys seeing all of the sights that a city has to offer and Cuba has a complex banquet of tobacco flavors.

Why not taste and enjoy them all!
