‘La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor’ roughly translates into ‘The aroma of Cuba, my love’. La Aroma De Cuba was a brand of cigar that had been pretty popular before the Cuban Revolution drove many cigar families from the country. It was a cigar that was known around the world, and the La Aroma De Cuba line was even rumored to be among the favorite cigars of Sir Winston Churchill.
To revitalize a brand of such historical importance, Robert Levin couldn’t turn to just anyone. He had to turn to someone with knowledge of Cuban cigars and a history of working with Cuban seed, someone who knew a bit about spicy cigars and controlling and taming that spice. He needed to talk to Don Pepin Garcia of My Father cigars.
Don Pepin Garcia is the maker of these cigars, and they are made at the My Father facility in Esteli, Nicaragua. The cigars are made from the best medium to full-bodied tobaccos that can be found in Nicaragua, along with a dark Maduro wrapper from San Andres. As with almost everything that Don Pepin Garcia has ever made, these are a fantastic cigar, and well worth investing in 25 of them.
When you cut the cigar and light it, this box-pressed cigar exudes the scent of dark chocolate, a hint of spice, and the smell of rich coffee, the kind of coffee that people drink black without sugar or cream. It’s a cigar that would do well as an after dinner or dessert smoke, but also one that can be fantastic to just enjoy in the great outdoors while you’re fishing. Do not pass up the chance to enjoy these fine cigars.
