While reading up on this beauty, I noticed that the La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor, was the No. 2 cigar in the world as ranked by Cigar Aficionado magazine in 2011. This was a must smoke in my opinion. The initial smell is very pleasant, sweet with a hint spice. The wrapper on this cigar looks like it was dipped in cocoa powder, it is so smooth that I can barely see any veins. The band has a Victorian era feel to it. There is a vignette of a port city and a maiden in the middle. The second band says “Mi Amor”. Overall presentation is classic and welcomes the smoker to enjoy.
I smoked this bad boy till it burnt my fingers. Amazingly smooth smoke that picked its flavors and knocked them out of the park. I plan on adding more to my humidor and praising its name to the world.
