Cusano P1 Bundles Cigars Are Affordable OnlineThe Cusano P1 Bundles are a strong option for smokers on a budget who want a quality smoke. Like most bundled stogies, these are sold at a value price, and this can scare off some aficionados. It is true that a lot of poor smokes are passed off as value sticks, but this is not one of them. Cusano has perfected the middle ground between premium quality and cheap pricing, creating a nice blend that can be enjoyed time and time again.

This stick comes with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, a Connecticut binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic. The Cusano P1 Bundles are available in six vitolas, including 5 x 36, 5 x 50, 6 x 52, 6 x 60, 6 1/2 x 42 and 7 1/2 x 50. The stogie is medium brown in color and has some medium veining on it. Silky and dry to the touch, it has a delicate feel. The band is a Cuban-style circle stamp that features the name of the stick in white on a red background. The pre-light aromas consist of mostly sweet notes, including spice and coffee.

The first third of the Cusano P1 Bundles produces the same sweet flavors present on the pre-light
. The coffee and spice are dominant in this part of the stick, but there is also a strong black pepper note that moves from the retrohale to the palate over the course of the initial third. By the end of the first third, the black pepper has taken over the primary role. As the first third closes out, the spice and coffee are in the background. They are joined by a sweet earth taste that shows up during the transition into the second third.

During the second third of the stick, the black pepper settles down and transitions to the back of the palate and retrohale. A nutty flavor emerges and joins the spice and coffee as the most powerful flavors in the profile. The sweet earth taste fades out during this part of the stick and becomes a tertiary flavor.

In the final third of the Cusano P1 Bundles, the flavors hold steady for the most part. The black pepper flashes some intensity and delivers a little extra heat, but doesn’t move into a dominant role. The sweet spice and coffee remain the dominant duo, though the spice develops some in this final portion of the smoke. By the end of the smoke, the spice is similar to cedar spice and gives the stogie some nice aromatic qualities.

Cusano P1 Bundles are medium bodied sticks. Though they are listed at medium strength, many reviewers consider them mild to medium in strength. The burn is excellent though the draw is a touch loose. It wasn’t considered a serious issue by aficionados, but just something that requires a little attention. These stogies are an ideal choice for a smoker that spends a lot of time on the move and likes to keep a stick on hand at all times. Its sweet and gentle profile also makes it a strong choice for novice enthusiasts.
