Archive for La Aroma de Cuba


So the last several cigars I’ve smoke that were in the $8-$9 range have disappointed.  The last several cigars that I’ve smoked in the $5 or less range, however, have been very impressive.  This cigar was no exception.  It was made of an Ecuadoran wrapper and the filler and binder were from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic.  Priced at $3.70 and sized at 4.5×48, this was a great smoke with lots of complex flavor, a beautiful draw and even burn.  The aroma from the cigar alone made me salivate.  The cigar had lots of cedary and leathery tones including some spice.  I can’t wait to pick up several more of this one.  



This was a nice sized Robusto at 54×5 that had an attractive wrapper.  The draw was perfect and the burn was mostly even.  Made in Honduras with Honduran wrapper and binder and Nicaraguan and Honduran filler, this cigar had lots a nice flavors of earth and cedar and had a decent amount of spice, though not too spicy at all.  Very smooth cigar.  This is the cheapest Ashton-made cigar I’ve seen and well worth the $4.55 I paid for it.  I will look to stock my box with this one.  Overall I’ll give it an A-.
