La Aroma de Cuba roots date back to the late 1880s in Cuba, where the brand became an early favorite of Winston Churchill. In the midst of Cuba’s rebellion against years of Spanish conquest, Churchill arrived on the island in 1895 as an eager young lieutenant. There, the genesis of his brilliant military career and his avid passion for handmade cigars emerged. More than 120 years later, La Aroma de Cuba embraces an entirely fresh and prominent heritage in Nicaragua. Today, it is blended by legendary cigar-maker Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia in Estelí, Nicaragua. Pepin’s foundation in Nicaragua is preceded by his extensive reputation in Cuba as a master blender. For decades, Pepin oversaw production of a number of Cuba’s most revered brands. Generations of meticulous cigar-making craft influence the unrivaled standards for flavor, aroma, and quality expressed in La Aroma de Cuba cigars.
The original release of the La Aroma de Cuba blend was a breakthrough hit for parent company Ashton. It was a stark contrast to their Dominican born Ashton line. These new cigars brought rich Nicaraguan flavors and aromas to their outstanding portfolio of premium cigars. Made by Pepin Garcia at the My Father cigar factory, La Aroma de Cuba uses a blend of choice Nicaraguan filler and binder tobaccos along with a USA Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. This special blend brings flavors of cocoa, earth, cedar, and black pepper with hints of brown sugar, roasted nuts, and leather. To say the Garcias and Ashton hit it out of the park with this blend would be an understatement. These great cigars are a welcome addition to any humidor.
