Los Statos de Luxe Brevas Review:

The strongest of statos. We can consider this cigar as oily, with herbaceous flavours and medium. Thier ageing is quite good, as their packaging has this purpose and a minimum ageing of five years is recommended. Strength 3/5.

Review #10: Hola. Long time without being seen in Spain, they were a classic smoke here along with Quintero Brevas. I would not recomend both Brevas to novice smokers, specially the fresh new rolled ones. High strength, almost bitter taste. Very 'Vieja Guardia' (Old School) style. - Submitted by olisiponense on June 29, 2008

Review #9: --- 96 My bundle of 96s has come around somewhat with time for humidification and oxidation inside the bundle, but they are still hit or miss and not overly great. They mostly show some nice sweetness, but no remarkable substance or even annoying, almost flawed tastes of gum or cabbage. Prolonged time with oxygen allowed into the bundle definitely is not for their good. The ash on all sticks is unreal white for a Cuban cigar, which might be due to planting region or high use of Magnesium that year... After half the bundle, there were maybe two sticks out of ten that were good to great. No comparison to the '98s again, colour assortment is not well done on the '96s either. Hit or miss, but at least not too great a loss. Construction also ranges from loose to firm, but no plugged ones here. However, I would love to have a few plugged ones if the rest were as great as the 98s... - Submitted by Hercule Poirot on June 25, 2008

Review #8: With still hand-made Brevas bundles available from 1996-2000, these are a good value for a casual smoke. Two samples from 2000 caught my attention and just tasted great, comparable to matured Quintero Brevas, quite full bodied and a magnificient, straight Cuban profile. Having smoked through one bundle of each 96 and 98, I would favour the 98s. 96 ones are well constructed, with almost too light draw, but just have an "ok" taste. A bit woodsy, nutty, still a bit drying, not very full - ok at their price, but nothing more... Of the 98s, all were packed tighter, resulting in almost 10 pieces being plugged. But rewarding for those failures, all smokeable ones were blockbuster, rich, dense, oily textured, just delicious smokes being worth a multiple of their price. Having to judge, the tobaccos used must have been from different growing regions, with 98s being Vuelta Abajo ones (and 96s Vuelta Arriba or Oriente) - just a guess, but very intriguing. One characteristic of the packaging is that each bundle is very "reductive" and dry when coming. A hay-like, black tea leaf smell, but they need weeks in the humidor in order to taste good, as the dry ones will be very agressive, drying and bitter. The more the bundle gets emptier, the more do the cigars change. They obviously oxidize, take on a new aroma. This can be for the good within the first weeks, but thinking in a period of several months, the change is not for the good any more! - Submitted by Hercule Poirot on May 29, 2008

Review #7: This was a very surprising smoke. My experience with Los Statos de Luxe is limited, but I was very impressed with the Brevas. Very smooth. Good balance. A great combination of fine Cuban tobacco. There is definitely a sweet "woody" taste to this cigar. Great cigar for little money! - Submitted by Eduard on April 28, 2008

Review #6: Very good. I have been smoking 5 from my 98, and they were all very satisfying and with surprisingly consistent quality - no problems whatsoever so far. Nice wrappers. Mine are Totalmente a mano, with short filler. Strong, full "dark" flavour; taste as in review #2. I have tried many budget smokes and these are not only the cheapest but by far the best at just over 1 Euro/stick in Switzerland. Score in relation to price: 10/10. - Submitted by kiste on November 1, 2007
