Quick Smoke: La Aroma de Cuba Churchill

29 Jul 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

According to Ashton’s website, this blend of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos was one of Winston Churchill’s favorites. The six and ¾ inch by 48 ring gauge cigar has many redeemable qualities, including a rich aroma, a beautiful band, and tastes of leather and chocolate. But I can’t fully recommend the La Aroma de Cuba Churchill because of the stogie’s uneven burn, bitter aftertaste, and propensity to go out at will.

Verdict = Hold.

    I've always enjoyed these as a good smoke for under $5, but I understand your verdict. They're a bit lacking in the construction department.

    I felt the same way. It looked a hell of a lot better than it smoked.

    Try a robusto I found them to burn better.

    I have never had a bad one. I love the Monarch (50 x 6") and have they always burn cool and evenly. I have never tried any other size.
