La Aroma de Cuba

The new La Aroma de Cuba.

Now made by Jose ’Don Pepin’ Garcia in Nicaragua, La Aroma de Cuba is a bold blend of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers insider a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The smoke is zesty throughout with a smooth core of deep, earthy sensations balanced by a rich core of tobacco flavors. Medium to full in body and complex, La Aroma de Cuba is a flavorful, well-made, and aesthetically pleasing handmade.

La Aroma de Cuba received a 91-point rating, noting: "A dark pigtailed Lancero with an attractive, toothy wrapper. It draws and burns perfectly offering a strong, heady set of toasty, woody and nutty flavors complemented by a leathery finish."

Customer Reviews of “La Aroma de Cuba”
La Aroma de Cuba is a staple in my humidor, the old blend was consistant and flavor was, for the most part, the same from light to that finger burning last draw. So when the new blend by Don Pepin came I knew I had to give it a try. WOW there is a great difference, the nutty,earthy flavor are more pronounced and the spice is excellent from 1 inch in to again that finger burning last draw.

This is one of the best cigars out there! Wish I could afford to smoke them daily; got a five pack off of JoesDaily..excellent construction and burn, smells like heaven and if this is the revamp of the original, I would probably give my left **** for one of those! The LAdeCuba is easily up there with the likes of Rocky's best and I'll bet he is envious...I would swear this was a sun grown wrapper....smoked all of these babies after a month in my humi within 2 days...addicting to say the least!

I pretty much agree with CI's description on this one. It has that pre-light aroma that brings you back to the reason you like fine cigars in the first place. Nice tooth and solid construction, no big burn issues, though the Churchill I had was a tad tight at the beginning. But it builds up steadily and consistently in smoke and to a fuller body. The finish is long and dry and the flavors (dark earth, malt balls, cedar) stay the same but develop nicely. Quality value!
RA of Burbank, CA
An exceptional cigar with a flavor that separates it from the regular pack of wonderful cigars. worth every penny!
CS of Rock Springs, WY
If you don't have this cigar in your humidor, it's because you haven't tried one. The construction, flavor, and even burn gives you close to an hour of smoking pleasure. I'm sure there are many who could describe the taste better than myself. However, all you need to know is that this is a smooth smoking cigar from start to finish. While it may be in the category of medium to full, I'm willing to bet that even the mild bunch would enjoy this tasty stick.

Consistent one after the other. Anyone who understands crops and weather knows that having a consistent product of agriculture is extremely hard. Ashton seems to do it with this cigar. Earthy,tobacco-y, chewy, creamy, hard wood fire, sweet cedar, roasted almonds. One of the most genius cigars of our day.
JS of Arlington, TN
I've smoked about 200 of these over the past year. Probably the most consistent smoke I've found! Perfect construction and draw, time and again. I'll continue to fill my humidor with these little beauties (robusto) for an anytime go-to smoke. One of my personal favorites. Thanks CI for keeping them in my reach.
LG of Laguna Niguel, CA
This is one earthy smoke. Fully loaded and nicely balanced with charred wood, dark dried fruit and a toasty smokey draw. The robusto is easily the everyday smoke for the La Aroma line up.
PW of Charlestown, RI
This is a wonderful cigar. Every one is as good as the last. They are well constructed, have an excellent flavor and complexity and are worth every penny.
TF of MURFREESBORO, TN
This is an awesome smoke for me when I want some spice. I do prefer the corona. It doesn't seem to be too complicated of a cigar. Pretty straight forward. Another great Pepin creation.
JL of WEST PALM BEACH, FL
Got this in the 92 sampler...been in my humi for a few months...finally got around to it and completely enjoyed this stick and will be getting more.Smoked it on my back porch 2 days ago when a friend was over and both he and my wife said how great it smelled... they both missed out on the great taste this cigar was! Actually my wife did try it and said it had a nice taste but she doesn't smoke....glad of that, I love my wife but I don't want her in my humi...Nice easy draw plumes of smoke ! I also like the price from CI...!
DE of Gibbsboro, NJ
WOW! What a great smoke. After I read all the reviews I can honestly say I held this cigar to a high standard, and boy did it deliver in all aspects. Burn and flavor were amazing. You get a taste of chocolate, leather, and earthiness. The chocolate flavor was by far my favorite experience. I smoked this cigar until it about burned my fingers, just didn't want to put it down. If you've never had one of these don't hesitate to buy one. You won't be disappointed.
JS of Spokane Valley, WA
Very easy to light. Good construction and burn with several minor touchups needed. Open draw with heavy smoke output. Slightly dry on the palate but thick mouth feel. Medium to full strength and medium flavors. Flavors of silky, soft cream and caramel with a white pepper tingle. Short finish of nuts, cream, leather and the continued slight spice.
PC of LEXINGTON, SC
Oh so wonderfully nutty! Easy draw and excellent construction each time. Smooth nuts and pepper throughout. Leathery at the end. Sweet aroma that didn't receive any complaints either. Will always keep these on hand.
DW of Los Angeles, CA
Letting those with better use of describing various flavors, I will go straight to the meat and potatoes. Since first smoking this cigar a couple of years ago. One of my 3 humidors will have this cigar resting inside until being smoked. There is no way I could sleep at night without knowing there was a La Aroma De Cuba in my home. OK, I may have stretched that part just a little, but this is a damn fine cigar for all lovers of quality tobacco.

La Aroma de Cuba

Posted by Brandon S

La Aroma de Cuba was always a decent smoke in my humblest of opinions but it lacked that certain something that could take it from simply “decent” to a whole lot more…and then some. The folks at Ashton seemed to agree with this as was evidenced by their recent factory change for production and subsequent re-blending of the La Aroma de Cuba. Now made by Pepin Garcia in his shiny new Nicaraguan factory, La Aroma de Cuba has allegedly taken on a brand new personality. So, without further delay, I’m off to the humidor to grab me a 5-pack of the 6x52 Monarch. Sit tight, I’ll be back in a few…

Alrighty then, I’m back with my Monarchs along with a few other tasty treats I snagged during the trip, but more on those later. As you may recall, the previous blend of La Aroma de Cuba was produced in Honduras with a Cuban-seed wrapper and a blend of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. The result was a medium-bodied cigar that was pretty one-dimensional in flavor and yielded a lingering spice on the finish. Take my word for it, I’ve still got a couple boxes of the old blend and am smoking them side by side to compare. The new Pepin Garcia-made La Aroma de Cuba, by comparison is a few shades darker and oily enough to bring a tear to the eye. It literally glistens in the light! Oooooooohhh…..Aaaaaaaaahhh…say it with me now! The new blend boasts a combination of select Nicaraguan long-fillers all brought together with a ruddy and oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The end result is a dramastic (term coined by an excited CI staffer. It is believed to be a combination of the words “drastic” and “dramatic”) improvement over the old blend with the new delivering distinguishable cedary notes up front followed by a host of earthy and nutty flavors throughout as the cigar develops. The spice is still there by the boatload but if you need an extra helping just try blowing the smoke out through your nose! For my palate the new La Aroma is a great smoke and a vast improvement over the old blend. If you haven’t had the new blend yet you should give it a shot right now without delay. If you’ve had the old but not the new, well what are you waiting for? Go on and git some!
