La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse

La Aroma de Cuba’s Noblesse is pretty legit. This blend was definitely filed under “office favorite” after we got a couple of samples from IPCPR. But what surprised me about the cigar was how lackluster the dull, Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper looked when I took the cello off. There are some blends that look so appealing I start to fumbling around with my lighter and cutter because I can’t wait to start smoking. Noblesse is not one of those blends. Frankly, I even debated passing on it for one of the many other new cigars from IPCPR.

Thankfully, I went ahead with the review. From the very first puff, I knew I had something special. The draw was effortless. And even though it’s packed with some potent Nicaraguan fillers, the cigar remained incredibly balanced. I was surprised, for a Pepin blend, there wasn’t as much spice as I expected. Noblesse has a dry, smooth flavor and I experienced notes of cedar, leather, and earth. The flavor built as the burn progressed but I wouldn’t say its complex. The only real complaint I have is the price tag but that’s what you get when only 3,000 boxes are made. Definitely try to pick one of these up before they’re gone.
