Quick Smoke: La Reloba Selección Habano Robusto

17 Jul 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


This relatively new smoke from My Father Cigars is a Nicaraguan puro featuring an attractive matte brown Habano wrapper. A slightly loose draw reveals warm tobacco, sweet bread, raisin, and earth flavors. While the easy draw persists, the rest of the construction is flawless, including a notably sturdy light gray ash. La Reloba displays nice balance and a sweet cedary finish even though the trademark Don Pepin Garcia spice never comes. All in all, available for under $6, there is a lot to like about La Reloba.

Verdict = Buy.
