La Aroma De Cuba New Blend Robusto


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.
