The La Aroma de Cuba brand goes back quite some time. Winston Churchill (who was sort of a cigar fan) described it as one of his favorites. To say this cigar as made some waves in the industry is an understatement. This cigar has a 94 rating and made the Top 10 Cigars of the Year in 2008 and Top 25 Cigars of the Year in 2020 from Cigar Aficionado. Handmade in Nicaragua, this award winning smoke comes dressed in a golden silky Cuban-seed Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf that secures a Cuban-seed Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers. Medium to full in body, notes of leather, smoked almonds, cocoa, espresso bean and spices will coat your palate. Complex, balanced, and oh so tasty, enjoy this smoke with a Bulleit Rye.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
