Connecticut Broadleaf, La Aroma De Cuba, My Father Cigars S.A., New Blend, Nicaragua, Robusto What more can I say about this Connecticut Broadleaf “Classic” in the “Original” La Aroma De Cuba “New Blend” in Robusto.

This morning I was kept company on the 3.5-Mile homestretch of my Cigar Walk with this perfectly constructed cigar.

I probably need to get serious and purchase a box to have these readily on hand.

Connecticut Broadleaf, La Aroma De Cuba, My Father Cigars S.A., New Blend, Nicaragua The La Aroma De Cuba New Blend is another classic cigar that will have a permanent home in my TupperDor. I should smoke more of these very affordable cigars and more often!

The La Aroma De Cuba New Blend greets me with smooth creamy smoke that delivers coffee, cocoa, and leather… this cigar hits all my checkboxes with a slight kick on the retrohale but on the milder side. The draw is perfect and the burn is razor-sharp indicative of these expertly rolled cigars from My Father Cigars factory in Nicaragua.

I’m just past the halfway point and I’m very happy with my choice this morning. Deep rich chewy flavors riding through a perfect draw.

I’m game for this affordable cigar anytime, anywhere! One of my favorites.

Today’s La Aroma De Cuba New Blend by Ashton Cigar was a great experience. So much so that I don’t know why I don’t smoke these more often. After all, I just rediscovered that the wrapper is my favorite Connecticut Broadleaf.

Let’s get this going. I’ve had these La Aroma De Cuba New Blend Robustos marinating since July when I purchased them from for a whopping $4.50! Oh, and before I forget, this is a “New Blend” with Pepin Garcia’s magic added.

Having just read about Pepin Garcia’s involvement, I didn’t get that much pepper spice from this cigar. I did get a smooth creaminess that I wasn’t expecting. As I progressed toward the middle of the cigar, cocoa, coffee, wood, earth, and leather made their presence known thus providing all that I need to complete the checkboxes of flavors.

This cigar is an affordable winner and #FingerBurner. I can’t wait to light one up again.
