Default La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor Magnifico

This is a short one as I would rather smoke it than type.

What an impressive smoke. I wasn't a huge fan of their line before. Very complex and smooth medium body and flavor. Raisins cream and vanilla. Also transitions to mocha and coffee, while faintly keeping that famous Pepin spice. Goes really well with a bourbon or scotch (like any cigar right?).

I am glad I have a few more and will definetly be stocking my humidor with more of these. Very impressed.

Honestly the few LADC that I have had tunneled. Didn't think highly. This one started funny but really opened up after about 5 minutes.

I really like the Murcielago as well, so maybe there is something to these new Cuban seed Mexican wrappers.

Yeah, Pepin is quickly becoming the master of Mexican wrappers.

Wow! Sounds like a good cigar.

I've been curious to try these for a while now. Looks like I'm on the hunt for a 5 pack this weekend.

Thanks for the review!

I desperately tried to like these smokes cause I think the wrapper is so cool.
All I could wring out of them is "Gaack."
I'm really happy some guys are liking them, they're a good looking cigar all the way around. They just didn't hit any of my flavors, and hit lots that I specifically don't like. I'm happy I've had lots of chance to try them, and I'd hope anyone that has opportunity would give them a shot.

I was gifted one of these from an Ashton rep a little while back. They are an excellent smoke indeed.
