Quick Smoke: La Aroma de Cuba Edición Especial No. 55

8 Feb 2014

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.”

La-Aroma-de-Cuba-EE-55

La Aroma de Cuba Edición Especial was the first La Aroma made by the Pepins, who currently make all four La Aroma blends at the My Father factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. (The previous version featured a Plasencia wrapper and was made in Honduras, although later production of that was also switched to Pepin’s factory and reblended.) The blend features an Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper surrounding Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The No. 55 size is the newest addition to the line and the largest ring gauge (55), with a length of 5.75 inches. It’s a classic, if simplistic, version of Pepin’s signature flavor profile: pepper, wood, and warm tobacco. It’s a pleasant cigar, but far from Pepin’s or La Aroma de Cuba’s best.

Verdict = Hold.
