Quick Smoke: La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva Romantico

11 Jun 2016

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.”

Reserva Romantico

While on recent business travels, I found myself perusing the shelves of a tobacconist/lounge I had not previously visited. It seemed like a good time to try a cigar I’d never smoked: the Romantico size of the Mi Amor Reserva line. This La Aroma de Cuba creation measures 6.9 inches long with a ring gauge of 50—making it a good deal longer and thinner than my only previous experience with this blend, the Maximo. Once the dark San Andrés wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos are lit, the Romantico starts pleasantly enough with notes of cocoa, gritty earth, a little black pepper, and creamy peanut. There are few changes throughout the well-constructed smoke, though I don’t necessarily consider that a negative. This cigar has loads of elegant flavor. I don’t regret paying north of $11.

Verdict = Buy.
