Rough Cut Cigar Review – Ashton Cigars La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor

La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor
Today we offer the Stogie Press Rough Cut cigar review notes on the Ashton Cigar Company’s La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor. The La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor has been on cigar shop shelves since they were introduced back in 2010. It is one of my favorite cigars since I first tasted it. It is no wonder, as they are rolled at the My Father Cigars factory.  I recently picked up some at the local ABC Fine Wines and Spirits here in Melbourne, FL and realized I had to publish my notes on this fabulous cigar.


The Ashton Website declares:

“La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor is the recipient of a magnificent 95-rating, as well as “#2 Cigar of the Year” honors.  Handcrafted in Nicaragua, Mi Amor exudes decadent notes of dark cocoa, crisp spice and rich espresso… Every draw of La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor enchants with relentless satisfaction..”

  • Robusto – 5 x 50
  • Duque – 5.25 x 56
  • Belicoso – 5.5 x 54
