This cigar was assessed in depth on Cigar Coop. Most notably, this was mentioned on our viewer feedback back as a #1 Cigar choice for 2013.

The La Colonia Miami line is a collaboration being done with Casa Fernandez. It is being made at the Tabacalera Tropical factory in Miami and has been blended by Arsenio Ramos. They are planning a national launch, but right now Pipe and Pint in Greensboro, NC is the only retailer I am aware that has it.

This is one of the most unique cigars I ever smoked. It features The blend features 5 to 7 year Aganorsa farm tobacco. The signature flavor of this line is going to be almost a chocolate egg cream soda flavor. While it sounds a bit nuts, I’ve had many agree with me. Make no bones about it, this has plenty of tobacco flavor as well as notes of cedar, pepper, and earth. The notes are full-bodied. The strength is medium to full for most of the cigar before progressing to full-bodied. I found the burn and draw to be excellent.

This is a cigar to keep on the radar as it uses great tobacco, comes from a great factory with a great blender. It is box worthy all the way.
