JOSE L. PIEDRA CONSERVAS really nice smoke. Jose L. Piedra was a very popular brand in the US prior to the embargo. The brand was resurrected in 1996 and has since found a following again. The tobacco for the Jose L Piedra cigars is grown in the Remedios region of Cuba. These strong cigars offer raw tobacco flavors and definitely need time to reach their best. You can buy this at Stogies & More.
