NEWS: La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva Presented at the IPCPR 2012 available now at our online store.
Ashton Distributors Inc. and the Garcia family have launched a more intense version of their award-winning La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor brand called La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva as per Ashton Distributor at the IPCPR Trade Show 2012.
“Introducing La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva: Handcrafted in Nicaragua by Pepin and Jaime Garcia, this could very well be the Garcia family’s finest cigar to date! Gorgeous chocolaty-brown Oscuro wrappers grown in Mexico from Cuban seeds accompany a beautifully-bold blend of the finest, most diligently-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. Full-bodied in strength, this new masterpiece boats a rich and decadent flavor-profile defined by regal notes of earth, spice, cedar, and luscious chocolaty finish. Featuring a traditional Cuban-style box-pressed finish, La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva comes in 4 sterling sizes packaged in wooden chests of 24.”
“Picture a stronger, richer, even more complex and refined version of Mi Amor,” said Ashton vice president Sathya Levin. La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva has the same wrapper component as the traditional Mi Amor, a Cuban-seed leaf grown in Mexico, but the wrapper on the new cigar is from a higher position on the plant, and is darker in color.
This new blend use filler and binder form all Nicaragua, but the components have been tweaked from the original. “It’s a different blend,” said Levin. The blend is expected to be a fuller body than the original Mi Amor with a lot of flavor and a toasted tip that it is been to well received by the aficionado audience.
Aroma de Cuba Reserva will be available in four sizes, each of them parejos with a slight box press:
- Beso, 5 5/8 inches long by 48 ring;
- Maximo, 5 1/2 by 54;
- Divino, 6 1/4 by 52,
- Romantico, 6 7/8 by 50.
Prices for this new line are higher than for the original Mi Amor, which sells for $6.75 to $8 per cigar. The least expensive Reserva will have a suggested retail price of $8.50, and the most expensive will retail for $9.95.
The brand was on display at last weekend’s International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show in Orlando, and should begin shipping in September. While not a limited-production brand, Levin plans to make fewer Reservas to start, then ramp up production later.
The La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso, which scored 95 points, classic on our 100-point-scale, is the No. 2 cigar of the year from Cigar Aficionado magazine.
