La Aroma de Cuba is a excellent example of a classic cigar. It’s well made, dark and deep in flavor, medium full in body, and a consistant flavor profile all the way down. Not heavy on ‘transitions’ but a solid, enjoyable smoke throughout. Burns evenly, nice aroma, consistent construction.

I’ve had La Aroma de Cuba Robustos (5.2x54) on a number of occasions and really liked them, but in my quest to discover a wide range of good cigars, I kept moving on to try other sticks. Recently, I got a couple of 5 packs of the La Aroma de Cuba Rothschilds (5x50), and have been making my way through them more regularly. The CT Broadleaf wrapper is nice and dark, the cigars are firm and dense, with great burning characteristics. Some descriptive words that keep coming to mind as I enjoy them: deep, dark, bready, smooth, creamy; some earthiness, leather, and pepper, with an occasional wisp of toasted marshmallow. If I smoke one of these indoors while reading or watching TV, or with friends shooting the breeze, I can get an hour out of these cigars. Out doors with nothing to do but sit and smoke, I get 45-50 mins. They don’t get too hot toward the end, so I usually smoke them down to within the final inch. This is a cigar that makes you reluctant to stop, and sorry to toss it. Medium to full, plenty of flavor, nicotine is certainly there but reasonable. Finish is long. Good smoke production, great room note.
