The love saga continues....
Enter the exciting new follow up to the heralded #2 Cigar of the Year, La Aroma de Cuba 'Mi Amor' Reserva. This time around don't expect a drastic overhaul, but rather a tweaking of the existing blend. But don’t worry, Reserva packs plenty of subtle nuances providing more than enough change to keep things interesting.
Hand-crafted in Nicaragua at Pepin Garcia's My Father factory, each Mi Amor Reserva is draped in a dark and enticing Cuban-seed San Andres Oscuro wrapper. This toothsome leaf hugs a potent array of aged Nicaraguan long-fillers. Together this ensemble delivers a bevy of rich, smooth flavors in spades. Notes of roasted coffee, cocoa, earth, sweetness and a hint of cedar all make an appearance behind an impressively refined finish. Throughout the cool, slow burn, expect a gentle note of spice to enter the fray, weaving its way through the impressive bouquet. Although a tad stronger than its counterpart, Mi Amor Reserva never sacrifices an ounce of that renowned La Aroma smoothness.
Mi Amor Reserva joins the rest of the 90+ rated family of La Aroma de Cuba blends, earning a 94-point score and a rating in the Top 25 Cigars of 2013, noting: "The well-made cigar has hickory and almond notes that lead into hints of dark chocolate and earth."
