La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Magnifico Cigar Review

This 6×52 box pressed stick features a dark chocolate slightly mottled wrapper with a dry toothy feel, even slightly spongy give, triple cap, minimal veins, tight invisible seams and rich musty hay aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with minimal smoke output but nice medium-bodied flavors of a smooth oily screamy sweet chocolate and a short clean earthy finish. The first third burns perfectly, showing the exact same flavors from the first light, still with a snug draw. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, the draw is slowly improving and flavors transitioning. The draw shows the general sweetness going to a soft caramel, while the finish is earthy with a little pepper zing ans grows longer. Ending at 1:30 min with an inch left, the last third went to a much deeper earth both on the draw an finish, which got very warm heavy. Thank you very much to viewer Gary Hayes for sending this in for review!

    Great Review Bryan,
    They are one of my go to sticks. Always excellent performance and flavors. They came out with a Mi Amor Reserva that could be one of my favorites. I’ll send one to you for review. Thanks.

    I love the orginal La Aroma de Cuba but I had one of these about a month ago and it became my favorite La Aroma De Cuba.

  5. Orrza says:

    Love this brand!
    It’s one of the smoothest, sweetest (not artificially) sticks I’ve tried.
    it reminded me a little of the brickhouse robusto, maybe with little bit more complexity.

    great review Bryan and eveyone else I have a few of these in my box and now I think i will grab one, head outback and smoke it.

  7. Andrew says:

    I am a pepper and spice kind of guy and I still LOVE this cigar. Even if you’re like me and this isn’t your ideal flavor profile try it anyway! Great value and some fantastic flavors.

      Little late to the party but wanted to comment on your suggestion. I just finished a padron ann. and went to leave a review. I was giving it 2 stars out of 5, but was surprised how many people gave it 5. I am just wondering what kind of sheltered world some live in and was it cause it was a $14/stick? Then I saw you comment below which is exactly what I wrote in my review,BTW, I have a couple boxes of the perdomo 20th ann and the NOIR aging- an incredible smoke,I age my smokes 3 months for total enjoyment factor, I an going to cut and paste part of my padron review below with other smokes that you may be interested in- review notes below:

      “Oliva V series Melanio (just absolute heaven- my bench mark for perfection under $9/stk), or the figurado’s(under $6.5/stk),,,La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor (awesome!), Flor de las Antillas (it’s like smoking velvet!)-Nica rustica (wow-wow!), Torano Exodus 1959 GOLD 50 year maduro box press, Perdomo 20th anniversary/ or the Champagne NIOR(incredible-INCREDIBLE flavors- BIG BANG for the buck!), Alec Bradley Prensado (perfection),Alec Bradly Tempus,,Fernando Leon Family Reserve(so unique, so impeccable just really can’t put into word!)CAO anniversary box press red lable, and GOT to try the PDR1878 red label or even the black label Rocky Patel 1990/decade/ Mater.
      All these other cigars are 1/2 to 13/3 the cost of the padron,, I had to dip back into the hummi for something of real value after smoking the padron. So grabbed a Oliva V series Melaino- HEAVEN!! Padron WHO??

  10. yosef5 says:

    You have so many good reviews.Which ones do I
    get& smoke?

  11. david121 says:

    A great cigar all around, I haven’t had one in forever :(
    Can anybody recommend any other La Aroma cigars with a similar flavor profile?

    • glrnelson says:

      Hey david, little late but saw your question. I had a friend ask me for a list of my top cigars, I have 4 large hummi’s stocked with boxes. I like a bit of variety box on my list, this cigar was #2, number one being the Oliva V series Melaino, but to assist you in other smokes, I am pasting a comment on my top cigars also keeping mind the price,,, enjoy!

    I just got one last night i cant wait to try it! It sounds like a really good stick!

  13. yosef5 says:

    Thanks Good review

  14. Chris Tivnan says:

    Now this one is a good cigar. Such clear chocolate flavors. I like the Belicoso.

  15. Fabbio says:

    Looking at the comments here as well on other reviews had me wondering about size affecting profile. The recent camacho add for example you get one blend in a bunch of different sizes. I usually look to Churchill or robosto but maybe I am missing out. Any thoughts I can use for my next online purchases?

  16. HerbalJedi says:

    Love these things so complex, in my mind, very dope smoke. Might have one tonight, as a matter of fact.
