La Sirena Oceano

Author:

IPCPR 2014 marks the first year that La Sirena Cigars are on their own, separated from Miami Cigar Company. Arielle purchased the distribution rights from Miami Cigar Company and continues to manage the brand. This also marks the launch of Oceano which was created with the help of Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Cigars S.A., via the Quesada Factory in the Dominican Republic. This has allowed their owner Arielle to fully realize her passion of cigars and have complete control over the brands production. I had the chance to speak with her about the state of the industry and La Sirena’s part in it. They are focused on producing high quality flavor packed cigars that are in my opinion some of the best I have smoked. I was very impressed with the lineup and had the chance to review the Oceano cigar, reviewed below.

The toothy wrapper has a sweet tobacco and lite pepper scent. I really enjoy La Sirenas bands, they are flashy and bold like Arielle. Royal blue with gold borders, surrounding a mermaid by the sea. The cold draw has a sweet tobacco taste.

First puffs– Strong earth and floral flavors swirl, mixing with a soft white pepper. The draw was a bit tight causing the smoke production to be minimal.

First third– There is a smoky meaty taste that enters the mix. Floral notes are still present along with molasses and a pinch of pepper. The draw has picked up and is producing more smoke.
Second and Final third– White pepper kicks in much heavier now. Earth, floral, and molasses are still present. Very creamy and the flavors are really robust. I also get hints of caramel mixed in. Draw has opened up even more, smoking much better.

 

Overall an amazingly flavorful cigar that will leave you wanting more. La Sirena has shown that they are hitting their stride, producing a fantastic product. I would highly suggest this cigar to all aficionados out there. I was highly impressed with the quality and smokeability of this cigar.
