The Quintero was launched by the old Spanish Tabacalera in 1970, but when Altadis took over during the 1990ís they decided to reinvent the brand as a high level premium cigar to join the lines of their leading brands such as Monte Cristo, H. Upmann, and Romeo y Julieta. Quintero is sexy, sultry and smoking. Everything you always fantasized about a pressed cigar, with its sensual blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos, and its rich, reddish, Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, Quintero will satisfy the lover of fuller body cigars like none other. The cigar is really outstanding, earthy, rich, and full of flavors of succulent spices like ginger and cinnamon and a long finish of toasted nuts.
