Just got 5 of these and i honestly love them. Came with a boveda 65% humidity packet, so i figured it'd be ok to try one immediately, and i'm so happy i did. This is a fantastic cigar and at around $7 a stick (box price) it's def not too expensive. It's uber creamy and def tastes very nutty; on the milder side though-at most a low medium, with hints of pepper. Short finish, and not the best looking wrapper, but no real burn issues-actually has a very loose draw, loose ash, but tons of smoke by the end of the first 1/3. Ash didn't stay on for more than 3/4 of an inch-although to be fair i'm smoking it outside and it's a bit windy in nyc right now.

The profile seems really similar to ashton cabinets-a lil more spice though, but at half the price. I honestly am going to make this a regular smoke, and just purchased a full box for $175 shipped from texcigars-i got singles from serious cigars. Tex had them cheaper than any of the other major places-famous, serious, or ci. Not sure about this bit of info-but i thought i read that the cabaiguans are made in 2 diff places. Saw that they were made with Jaime Garcia at the my father factory, but also saw something about them being made in Don Pepin's factory, so not sure about that. Either way, whoever is making them did an outstanding job.

I've only enjoyed the Guapos 46's. I don't know about the Garcia connection, but they are a Pete Johnson stick.

Being patience, you can buy a box for around $100.

On the tatuaje site, it says they are made by jaime garcia in the my father plant (nicaragua). Wasn't sure, but the tatuaje site cant be wrong:

Guapos 46 is an excellent cigar, gets better with some rest.

Gonna put the rest in the humidor for a couple of weeks if i can, but i'm weak and might end up smoking a few here and there. Hope these also get better with age-though i'm not sure how much better they can get.

If you look smooth, creamy, nutty ish cigars, try to Swag Habano, it's awesome and relatively cheap. It's the only one of the marca I really like.

I'm a big fan of the Cabaiguans. Toasty and creamy, and very well constructed.

I love the cuban style triple cap too. It's honestly one of the best NCs out there outside of the uber-elites like DCMs, FFOXs etc.

got a call today telling me that they're not in stock and they are special order only, so they refunded my money. tried to order em from somewhere else, and they told me they only have one box left, and it doesn't have the top bc it was the last box that any of their b&m stores has.

I spoke to Andy-the distribution manager at Tatuaje and found out that the Cabaiguan line was made in Miami until 2007, and then they moved it to the My Father factory in Nicaragua after that. Guess that some of the info is really old. Every vitola is the same excpet for size obviously. I thought that certain sticks like the guapos were made in Miami and others were made in Nicaragua.

You have to smoke some. Ever been given a wrapped Christmas gift and then had it put on a shelf in plain sight everyday and told you can't unwrap it until 4th of July?

revisited a box of 08 Guapo Maduro and I dont know what happened over the past few years but it was terrible...bitter, grassy,...almost like a young cigar...I was bummed since this was one of my favorite smokes
