La Aroma De Cuba – Edicion Especial Robusto

 

I am a big fan of the Robusto size, and this one came highly recommended. The taught, smooth, natural wrapper was soft to the touch without any oils. There was a pre-light aroma of sweet spices and cured leather. The EE lit easily, with a good volume of sweet, smooth smoke.

The taste begins with a smooth, rich feel. There are opening notes of light cedar, caramel, and toasted almonds. This puro has an excellent semi-sweet flavor, with a bit more spice and taste of Cuban coffee, rather than the bitter chocolate that is usually found in “sweeter” cigars.

The EE has a soft, even burn, with good construction, and a sturdy, grey ash. I would pair it with sweeter spirits, like a bourbon or a chilled rum. This cigar made an impression on me, and is fairly priced (around $10 in California – less in Free America). With the robusto size and popular availability, this may become one of my go-to cigars. I am definitely a fan.
