Made by Caribe, but using Nicaraguan leaf (puros) not of their own. I would consider the recent release less than avg. and harsh. Unfortunately, not the same cigar in taste, strength and smoothness that I tried from the samples originally produced back in Feb. or March, which would have been good at the price point. Only can hope that if the recent production is allowed to sit and age it might equal the samples I had months back. I say this because IMHO Caribe (and they are by no means the only ones) is rushing to market with most if not all of their product lines, instead of allowing the leaf more time to age. Just my :2kansashat said:Made by Caribe (Eiroa family)......probably in Honduras. Medium bodied. A very average quality cigar IMHO.
