This cigar was assessed in depth on Cigar Coop.
The La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse is the fifth blend in Ashton Cigars’ La Aroma de Cuba line. This is one of two Nicaraguan made lines (the other being San Cristobal) that is made at the My Father Cigars factory. It is the brand’s first limited edition cigar – and it is the most premium offering at $16.00
A note on the wrapper. This is one of the most exquisite wrappers I have seen and definitely the nicest rosado one.
This cigar delivers classic flavors of sweet natural tobacco and black pepper to start. The second third sees a cinnamon note emerge in the background. The last third becomes more earthy and peppery with some grass notes in the background. The strength and body of this cigar are medium to full. The burn and draw were excellent.
Overall an excellent cigar. The price point is a little high on this, but given this is limited and could even better with age, I’d invest in a box split on this one.
