La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial No 2 Cigar Review

This 4.8×48 stick features a dark brown smooth rustic wrapper with small and medium veins, tight seams, rock hard but light pack, triple cap and mild tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful thick rich medium-full smoke production, giving flavors of a deep creamy and smooth earth, tobacco and leather with along full finish. The first third produces much the same, just swapping the bit of creamy leather for a deep black pepper flavor, with no zing or spice. The 2nd and last thirds progress with zero change in flavors, just perfect performance, dropping the ash at the 1/2 way point. Strength picks up at the band point, getting to a mat with the body at medium-full by the nub, ending at the 1 hour mark. Thank you very much to viewer Tan for sending me this for review!

    My personal thoughts of La Aroma de Cuba is that they are very over-rated. The Mi-Amor is a good cigar but is certainly not the 2nd best cigar of 2011 by any means. I actually have a higher opinion oF the EE. They are decent cigars but CA goes a little overboard at times. It’s all about how much ads you purchase in their publication. And we all know Ashton is a front-runner in the major cigar manufacturers.

      I have to disagree with you Dan. The Mi Amor Belicoso that I had was an incredible smoke. Exactly the way I want a cigar to taste. I would actually have to say the Alec Badley Prensado was rated too high. I know, different tastes for different smokers, but it’s nice to be able to discuss cigars with knowledgable smokers.

        I had the Mi Amor in Churchill. Like I said, it was a good cigar, but I was expecting a little more character. I should grab a belicoso. Like the Opus X line, size may make a vast difference. Which might be the case. I love the Padron Anniversaries, but who doesn’t? I think the 1964 is my favorite cigar. But i’ve had a couple Opus X’s that have been aged properly and are hard to compete with.

    Bryan have you ever thought of reviewing the orginal La Aroma de Cuba? I’ve been wantin to try it for a while but would love to see a review.

      Its such an awesome smoke I would definitely try one if I was you. I still have three on deck and a reserva as well.

    La Aroma E.E. is an all time favorite of mine. I’ve had it in three different vitolas, including this one. In my humble opinion, the #5 (belicoso) showcases this outstanding blend the best.

  • HerbalJedi

    Have not had a chance to try the E.E. but sounds awesome I will keep an eye out.
