Today I will be doing a cigar review of the La Aroma De Cuba Noblesse, the latest in Ashton Cigars La Aroma series of premium cigars. Manufactured by Pepin Garcia at their My Father Facilities in Nicaragua.
Debs friend Renee, suggested this cigar because she liked the band. Renee has never smoked a cigar, but her father was a cigar smoker and she reminisces about the days she would watch and smell the aroma from his cigars.
What’s Under The Hood
I completely forgot to tell y’all about what is in this stick, in the video.
Strength: Medium – Full
Size: Coronation 6.5 x 52
Wrapper: Cuban Seed Ecuador Habano
Binder: Ecuadorian Habano and Criollo
Filler: Nicaraguan leaf from Esteli, Jalapa and Namanji
How’d She Run
Start: 1:48 AM End: 3:03 AM Burn Time: 1:15
Aroma: Chocolate, Earth, Cashews, Honey
Cold Draw: Chocolate, Cashew, Leather, Honey
Construction: Rich dark brown wrapper, thin seams, tight wrap, triple cap, open foot
Burn: Nice clean burn, one touch up late (probably my fault)
Flavor Profile: Leather, Cashew, Chocolate and Honey. The honey and chocolate were in the early stages and then disappeared for about the second third, but came back like gang busters in the final third (very surprising).
NOTES: While this cigar was not real complex, it did come with some surprises. The aroma was very sweet and earthy, but the cold draw, was more of a leather taste than earth. When I actually began smoking this stick, it appeared to be mild to medium, but as it became more involved, the strength picked up and while I don’t think is approached full strength, it was definitely a solid medium.
Early on there was a sweetness of honey and chocolate, but it almost completely disappeared about a third of the way in leaving only the leather and cashew, but when I got to the last third, that sweetness came back even more pronounced than in the beginning and remained all the way until I put it out at about one inch.
A Little About La Aroma Cigars
La Aroma De Cuba dates back to the late 1880s and in 1895 Winston Churchill went to Cuba during the revolution and developed his passion for the brand. Now 120 years later La Aroma De Cuba, has embraced a fresh and prominent heritage in Nicaragua.
Their revival began in the early 2000’s with several new releases, with boxes and bands displaying La Aroma De Cuba’s original artwork and was quickly embraced by cigar aficionados.
Today La Aroma is blended by legendary manufacturer Jose Pepin Garcia in Esteli Nicaragua at the My Father manufacturing facility.
