Cigar Aficionado has crowned La Aroma de Cuba with numerous 90+ ratings and notable distinctions, including ‘#2 Cigar of Year’ honors as well as naming it the ‘#1 Bargain Cigar in the World.’ Handcrafted in Estelí, Nicaragua, the La Aroma de Cuba portfolio exemplifies Pepin’s versatility in blending the finest, aged premium tobaccos to a pinnacle standard that cigar enthusiasts everywhere now adore.

LA AROMA DE CUBA BRAND HISTORY

In November of 1895, an eager young lieutenant, Winston Churchill, arrived in Havana, Cuba with his fellow officer, Reginald Barnes. The two encountered the island’s rebellion against years of Spanish conquest, and, of course, cigars. Here began Churchill’s lifelong love affair with Cuban cigars. La Aroma de Cuba was among Churchill’s favorite brands and one that he would readily add to the stockpile of 3 to 4,000 cigars he regularly maintained at his country estate, Chartwell Manor, in Kent, England. To say Churchill’s cigar consumption was prolific, at roughly 8 to 10 cigars per day, may be understatement. What cannot be understated is the influence La Aroma de Cuba enjoys in the premium cigar world more than 122 years later.

Although the contemporary resurgence of La Aroma de Cuba has been transplanted to Nicaragua, the brand still displays a deep allegiance to its Cuban hallmarks. Much of La Aroma de Cuba’s modern-day authenticity is owed to the legendary Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia (often simply called ‘Pepin’), whose origins as a master cigar-maker span many decades overseeing production in Cuba for iconic brands like Montecristo, Cohiba, and Romeo y Julieta.

At some point in the earlier part of the 20th century, brand trademarks for La Aroma de Cuba had slipped off the radar as the company’s distribution was halted for one reason or another. It was common for ownership of Cuban cigar companies to change hands frequently at the time. By the end of the 1990s, the iconic Dominican brand, Ashton Cigars, had acquired and registered the trademarks for La Aroma de Cuba with the intention of one day returning the historic marquee to its former days of splendor.

As Nicaraguan brands grew into prominence throughout, and particularly after, the Cigar Boom of the 1990s, Ashton management felt the region would be an ideal fit for developing La Aroma de Cuba. Ashton’s already world-renowned Dominican portfolio could only be enhanced by adding a fresh collection of Nicaraguan cigars to the market, thanks to the burgeoning focus on Nicaraguan tobaccos. Their success with a recent Pepin-blended release in 2007, San Cristobal, encouraged the folks at Ashton to grant Pepin Garcia and his son, Jaime, all blending and production responsibilities for La Aroma de Cuba. The brand’s Nicaraguan release under the expertise of the Garcia family quickly grew into a bestselling cigar. Upon its debut, the original La Aroma de Cuba blend resonated with a tremendous number of cigar lovers, in large part due to value-based prices and its rich, disarming signature.

Additionally, the brand’s highly detailed cigar bands and packaging romantically harken back to a past era in a manner rivaled by few. Artwork for each line is patiently designed and embossed on each label with a vibrant and precise touch. It would be hard to argue that La Aroma de Cuba’s bands and boxes in any way lack an appropriate reflection of each cigar’s succulent flavors.

LA AROMA DE CUBA BRAND OVERVIEW

Today, the La Aroma de Cuba portfolio includes an award-wining collection of distinct blends that earn high ratings and are lauded for their complexity, balance, and flavor. The original La Aroma de Cuba is crafted from a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over an all-Nicaraguan core of binder and filler tobaccos grown on the Garcia family estates. Notes of cedar, raisins, brown sugar, and black pepper display a medium-bodied profile. The cigar finishes with a bit of sweetness and is available in a wide variety of shapes, priced roughly from $5 to $7 apiece. La Aroma de Cuba Robusto was awarded a 93-point rating and crowned the ‘#1 Cigar Industry Best Buy’ by Cigar Aficionado. The blend was also released in a big ring-gauge called La Aroma de Cuba El Jefe.

In 2008, La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial, or simply “E.E.” as it is often called, debuted with a rating of 93-points and took the ‘#4 Cigar of the Year’ spot in Cigar Aficionado’s ‘Top 10 Cigars of the Year.’ La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial is widely considered the brand’s most Cuban-esque release with a medium-bodied profile of white pepper, leather and cedar notes.

The premiere of La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor in 2010 garnered the brand its highest accolades to date with versatile flavors of black pepper, almonds, coconuts, and chocolate notes that take on a variety of transitions. Pepin blended an aged San Andrés wrapper over select Nicaraguan tobaccos, a recipe that would elevate the prestige and attention afforded wrapper crops grown in Mexico. The San Andrés region is regarded for its volcanic soils and a propensity to yield tobacco that is unusually complex, spicy and sweet. La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor scored 95-points and Cigar Aficionado’s ‘#2 Cigar of the Year’ honors following its release. Check out what a number of connoisseurs have said in their La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor reviews. The cigar was so successful among cigar lovers and industry insiders, an enhanced edition was blended in 2012, called La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva, featuring a higher-priming wrapper with a touch of added potency and a more full-bodied finish. Mi Amor Reserva scored an outstanding 95-points and is ideal for fans of stronger cigars.

The brand’s portfolio has truly been rounded out in recent years with the ultra-rare La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse. The stunning edition is annually released in limited batches in a handful of classic shapes. A Cuban-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador embraces the finest, premium aged tobaccos grown on the Garcia family estates. A creamy profile delivers floral notes early on that segue into Pepin’s signature Nicaraguan spices in a luscious, woody finish. Taste La Aroma de Cuba’s modern reinvention from its historic roots to an affordable and prominent Nicaraguan gem.
