Pure to the bone
It’s not often I reach for a Dominican puro. Nothing against them, I just find that the Nicaraguan leaf is more my fancy these days. That is, until I experienced the new Aging Room Solera Corojo – a Dominican puro that reinvigorated Dominican tobacco. The secret? A unique aging process called “solero” that Rafael Nodal and Aging Room borrowed from Spanish winemakers.
The specs here are simple — Dominican Corojo wrapper, Dominican Habano binder, and Dominican long-filler leaves. The profile — rewardingly complex. A warm, rich cedar core is greeted by notes of earth, milk chocolate, and coffee. Further into the blend, a sweet and fruity note enters the mix that stays around ‘til the end. It burns well, it tastes great, the price is right: I can’t think of a reason not to try the Aging Room Solera Corojo.
