Spotlight Brand: La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor

La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor

Dark, delicious, highly rated. 

Handcrafted under the supervision of Don Pepin Garcia in Nicaragua, La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor is an excellent cigar, blended to create a complex experience that completely satisfies your entire palate.

La Aroma de Cuba is an old-time brand with a unique and dedicated following. The blends under this line all maintain light complexities while remaining medium-bodied to create a balanced experience between strength and flavor. Now made in Nicaragua at Don Pepin Garcia's new factory, the La Aroma de Cuba brand remains consistent from start to finish and features some of the best tobaccos money can buy.

Mi Amor is simply an excellent addition to the La Aroma line. The blend brings a full-flavored but medium-bodied maduro to the mix and creates a hearty finish. Outside, you'll find a dark Cuban-seed Mexican maduro wrapper that conceals a flavorful concoction of Nicaraguan long leaves from Nicaragua's top growing regions. As the blend burns, you'll find espresso and coffee-like flavors throughout, all masked by earthy undertones and notes of black pepper. With a smooth, creamy smoke and long-lasting finish, expect Mi Amor to increase in strength from head to foot while still producing a well-balanced finish that you'll want to experience again and again.

Q & A: Aroma vs. Flavor

What is the difference between a cigar's aroma and its flavor?

10/18/10 | by BJ of Branson, MO

Naturally, most assume a cigar's aroma is simply "what the smoke smells like." However this is not 100% true. A cigar's aroma not only consists of the smoke produced from the burning tobacco, but also how the cigar smells before being lit. Before you toast the foot of any cigar you plan to enjoy, you should practice what is referred to as the "pre-light ritual." Before lighting, examine your cigar in your hands, feel it, put the foot to your nostrils and smell the raw tobaccos that make up the filler. Smell the wrapper and draw through the cigar before lighting to pick up some of its raw flavor. This will help you to taste all the different nuances that will be produced once the cigar is lit. These qualities all contribute to a cigar's aroma.
