What was the highest non-Cuban cigar on the top 25 Best Cigars of the Year in 2013? Which cigar took home the number 2 spot? Oh, just Aging Room Quattro Original, a small-batch boutique handmade from skilled brand owner Rafael Nodal and the folks behind brands like Romeo y Julieta and Montecristo. If you haven’t been introduced to Aging Room cigars yet, it’s high time you made their acquaintance.
Made using very limited batches of tobacco leaves too small for regular production, these premium handmades are highly unique, highly in demand, and of course, highly limited in scope. Take the Aging Room Quattro Original. Sounds like a luxury sports vehicle, and perhaps rightfully so, because it performs like a dream. A flawless 2003 Sumatra wrapper leaf encircles a mix of Cuban-seed Dominican fillers and a Dominican binder. To finish, each is box-pressed and packaged perfectly.
Aging Room Quattro Original received an esteemed 95-rating and was named #2 Cigar of the Year in 2013 when it was called Quattro F55, with the review noting, "a balanced, sophisticated cigar that displays rich notes of roasted coffee bean and sweet cedar."
First time hearing about this brand. Bought these in a five pack sampler and they were better than expected. Great build, I liked the box press and the appearance. They smoke smooth, didn’t have to delight or touch up at all. Great draw and the flavor was exceptional. Highly recommend! Great with a glass of red wine, bought more after I went through the first five!

I bought a box of Aging Room Quattro Original 7 x 50 at CI. This is the first time I smoked a Rafael Nodal cigar. Thanks Cigar International for having at your inventory such a magnificent cigar. Impecable roll, draw, burn and the box pressed is executed beautifully. Delicious well cured tobacco, full bodied taste with balance blended and pleasing smoothness.
