And if you’re like me, you’re sure to know that the world is hard for those of us looking for Maduro cigars. They are hard to find, and the truth is that finding a good Maduro cigar is something harder still. When you find a good cigar that is a Maduro, therefore, you will probably want to pounce on it, to make sure that you are going to be able to enjoy it, and to be able to continue to enjoy it. This means buying the cigar when you can find it, and finding a brand you can trust, and a vitola you can trust. CLE’s Prieto is just such a cigar.
So, what sets this cigar apart? Well, it begins with the beautiful, dark, and oily wrapper, the Connecticut Broadleaf, which imparts a rich flavor.

If you’re looking for a great dark cigar, this is one that you are going to want to give consideration to.
