This was a collaborative review done with Blind Man’s Puff.
Córdoba & Morales is a small cigar company based out of Orlando, Florida that is slowly building a presence in the Southeast. The Córdoba & Morales Clave Cubana Etiqueta Blanca was a limited edition release that came out at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show.
I had smoked this before. It’s not a bad cigar. The 92 score on Blind Man’s Puff is probably higher than I would have it personally. The cigar delivered notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cedar, and black pepper. The pepper had some of the sharpness associated with Mexican wrappers. I had this cigar as a stronger and fuller cigar than my colleagues – medium to full strength and full in body.
Overall, I’d place this as a fiver.
