Default Aroma De Cuba New Blend Monarch Cigar Review



This 652 stick offered a very smooth satin medium chocolate wrapper with a nice aroma of dusty cocoa. Draw started out very firm but gradually went down to a very nice amount of resistance as the stick burned. Total burn time to the nub was 1:30, holding the ash between 3/4″ and 1 1/2″ with an almost razor sharp line. Flavors in the first two thirds were very consistent, giving a light creamy leather flavor with a long finish. Pepper and spice built up on the finish giving a zing on the tongue and a heat on the lips. The last third showed the leather to fade out replaced by a smooth tobacco, and the pepper going way down to just barely there. The spice was completely gone by the band point.

I'm guessing the red band at the bottom indicates the new blend? The actual band looks the same. I know that the original is excellent, glad that the new blend appears to be similar in quality.

Great review.

I had one of these last week and I have to say they are excellent. I like the original blend and was a bit worried I wouldn't like the new one but I was pleasently surprised. Definatly a great smoke worth trying.

Had one of these at work today. Liked it a whole lot.
Yummy cocoa-esque flavors, with a rich creaminess throughout.
