Arandoza 5th Anniversary – Rough Cut Cigar Review

Has it been 5 years already? Wow, time flies, like the smoke in the Stogie Press lounge. There should be no mistake by now, that I enjoy Arandoza cigars. They have made the Stogie Press top 25 for two years in a row – OK, I only did two top 25 lists, but Stogie Press is only 3-years-old. In that 3 years I have reviewed the whole lineup of Arandoza.

Arandoza 5th Anniversary

So here we are in 2016 and once again Robert (Pops) Arango has released another cigar at the IPCPR. This time it is a milestone, his 5th anniversary, yep that’s the name of this one. There is no need for a quirky name when you are celebrating a milestone.

The only difference, is the Arandoza 5th Anniversary is a limited production cigar for the company.Only 500 boxes of 10 will be sold.

The cigar itself is a Nicaraguan puro and is being manufactured at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Factory. There is only one vitola being offered, a 6 x 52 Toro. They are retailing for about $8.70/cigar.

The blend is described simply as:

  • Wrapper – Nicaraguan Habano
  • Binder – Nicaraguan
  • Filler – Nicaraguan

Let’s see what 5 years in the business and a pure Nicaraguan blend gets you
