Quick Smoke: Aging Room Pelo de Oro Scherzo

10 Jun 2017

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.”

As regular StogieGuys.com readers know, I’m a big fan of Aging Room cigars. So when I spotted Pelo de Oro Scherzo on the shelf, I had to try it. Released last year, the single-size smoke gets its name from a finicky tobacco strain susceptible to disease. A.J. Fernandez grew it on his Nicaraguan farm and rolled the cigars at his factory. I was expecting a golden experience, but this was the rare Aging Room cigar that didn’t wow me. The Pelo de Oro tobacco certainly gives the cigar a different profile, but I found it a bit strong, with some sharpness and a very long finish. I’ll likely try it again, but for now I can recommend it only if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary.

Verdict = Hold.
