The Jose L. Piedra Petit Caballeros is “Hermoso Corto” Sized with a length of 120mm and a ring gauge of 48.
These cigars are for regular cigar smokers and have a slightly woody flavor. Made in the regional factory in Santa Clara, Cuba, this Jose L. Piedra brand continues to have very competitive pricing.
José L. Piedra is a particularly noteworthy Habano not only because its blend is composed of filler tobaccos grown exclusively in the Remedios tobacco region, but also because it is made using the Totalmente a Mano, Tripa Corta, or ‘totally hand made, short filler’technique.
The Piedra family came to Cuba in the 1880’s from the Spanish province of Asturias. They settled near the town of Santa Clara, which lies at the heart of the Remedios region where tobacco has been grown since the 16th Century, and
started to make cigars.
The family’s second generation led by José Lamadrid Piedra, whose name is commemorated today, founded and developed the brand.
