Cigar Review: Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Espressivo

8 May 2019

Aging Room has won a swath of awards and high ratings, including here at StogieGuys.com, where the brand has earned two perfect scores and a handful of other elevated ratings. The brand has come a long way as it evolved from Oliveros (known mostly for its flavored cigars) to Boutique Blends/Aging Room (which has done remarkably well in the premium space).

The Quattro Nicaragua was introduced last year at the IPCPR Trade Show as part of an Aging Room brand revamp. Under the Quattro umbrella went the F55 Quattro and F55M (now dubbed the Quattro and Quattro Maduro, respectively), alongside the new Quattro Connecticut and Quattro Nicaragua.

Quattro Nicaragua is a Nicaraguan puro made at A.J. Fernandez’s factory in four box-pressed sizes: Espressivo (5 x 50), Maestro (6 x 52), Vibrato (6 x 54), and Concerto (7 x 50). (All previous Aging Room cigars were made in the Dominican Republic.) I smoked two samples in the $10 Espressivo vitola for this review.

The rich brown, velvety wrapper has a few visible veins. No details on the components of the Nicaraguan tobaccos used in the blend have been released, but the thickness and color indicate a sun-grown wrapper.

Earth, coffee, and chocolate are the dominant flavors in this full-bodied smoke. Pepper and cedar add to the well-balanced profile, with sweet cedar notes especially prominent towards the final third. It’s a harmonious cigar with a great swirling combination of sweetness, spice, and wood notes.

On the combustion front, it’s mostly good news. The ash is sturdy, though the burn occasionally needs a touch-up to keep even. There are no issues with the draw or smoke production.

I started by mentioning the high ratings Aging Room has earned here, and this is no exception. A full-bodied, but not overly strong cigar, the Aging Room Quattro Nicaragua Espressivo earns an impressive rating of four and a half stogies out of five.
