La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor Reserva

Friday, November 9th, 2012

I randomly found the Mi Amor Reserva while browsing the humidor at Ed’s shop. Being a fan of the original Mi Amor, I couldn’t resist picking a few up. The price did raise an eyebrow, but I figured why not. Let’s see if this cigar delivered where it counts.


Wrapper: Mexican Cuban Seed

Binder & Filler: Nicaraguan

Size: Beso 5.62 x 48

Price: $8.50


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper on this thing was rugged looking. Near the head, I saw what looked to be a patch. Stuff like this isn’t a deterrent to me, as long as it’s a good cigar. I picked up hay, wood, and earthy aromas from the wrapper. The foot was more pungent soil (earth?) and leather. The cigar did have some lumps here and there, but overall nothing was of concern. The pre-light draw was free, and it had a dark earthy and leathery flavor.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held for about 3/4 of an inch.

The first third opened up with a simple dark earthy flavor, mixed with an easy pepper. Wood and leather joined in shortly after. The peppery spice developed nicely, and it had an interesting tingly/cooling effect in the nose.

I can only describe the second third as smooth and rich. Everything just felt smoother, and the peppery spice kept it’s zing. Like before, wood, earthiness, and leather were prominent. Cocoa joined in at the mid way point. The aftertaste kept that zingy, cooling effect.

The last third kept the same flavors as before. The big difference was the in flavor delivery. By that, I mean everything blended together evenly.

This was a very good full bodied cigar. I could see how some could confuse this as medium. That’s how smooth it is. What stood out was rich flavors, good construction, and a flawless burn. This cigar delivered where it counts. My only complaint is the price. Is it worth it? I’m still on the fence. I’m learning towards no, but price aside, this is still a solid smoke.
