La Aroma De Cuba Edicion Especial Lancero Cigar Review

This 7.5×38 medium tan stick offers a smooth almost seamless wrapper with a triple cap and very small veins with firm construction. Overall a medium body stick it packs a medium-full power kick, giving a slight buzz about 1/2 way through. Flavors were extremely smooth from first light to the nub and included a creamy leather, vanilla, roasted nuts, dry tobacco and a pepper & spice kick at various points throughout. Burn was excellent, holding 1″ of ash at a time with a perfect draw just slightly on the firm side. Total burn time to the last inch was 1:20 where it started to get warm. The amount of buzz I received during this video may have been mitigated if I had not chosen this as my ‘just rolled out of bed cigar’. I would not suggest doing as I did :) Thank you very much to Ashton Cigars for generously donating this for review! Photography by BG Pictures.

    Bry … Nice review, but what happened to the goatee? I almost thought you had a stand-in today.

    Picked up two samplers boxes for $100; not bad for 20 sticks; but honestly just waned to SC’s; but smoked the la aroma de cuba; found the last 1/3 to be the best . maybe with a few years; they may open up an blend into what the 1/3 was. I’d give me not more than B-

    The La Aroma EE has been my personal favorite as of lately. I am enjoying everything blended by Pepin @myfather. I find the EE’s draw to be perfect with very nice favors. This cigar pairs very well with a hot green tea.

      This cigar reminds me of the San Cristobal Seleccion del Sol. Have you tried it? Very good cigar and I love the spice that it leaves on your lips. :)

    Thanx Bryan for this review,
    I believe I had a different size of their “Edicion Especial”, it was really smooth.

    IMO everything that the Ashton company makes is a great smooth stick. I love the La Aroma De Cuba EE line, the regulr Ashton line, and the San Cristobol lines they’re all so smooth tasting.

  9. EddieJH says:

    This is one of my top tens. The only thing that would make it better in my opinion is a more noticeable spice feel. :)
