"Another Don Pepin Winner"
Construction is outstanding, with only slight resistance on the draw through a punch hole. Medium profile showing mild-to-medium flavors of cedar, cream, coffee, and leather; the intensity of the flavors decreased past the midpoint. Medium+ nicotine. Tobacco tastes a little young, particularly the wrapper. Nothing mind blowing other than the outstanding construction, possibly a benchmark at this price point. 89 points

"Great Smoke for the money"
Really enjoyed these. Got the 5 pack sampler and then got another 5 pack sampler. The flavor was consistent through both purchases. Draw was very good and I didn t find them to be too tightly packed. Overall a good purchase especially for the price.

"Tight and overpriced"
Smoked a box of these last month, to take a break from Padron. One less stick in the box and all of them were too tight and didn't taste like they had much age. That will teach me. Save some money and stick with the Padrons, or even a cheap Honduran, they're both better than these La Aroma's. Beautiful box though, best I've ever seen.

I've had a few of these and have loved every one. Great flavors, easy draw, nice construction, and good burn with few, if any, touch ups needed.

I was given this cigar by a friend to try. I was impressed from just the looks of the cigar. I like the looks and smell of an oily dark wrapper. I punch cigars, the cap was easy to punch without tearing. The cigar lit well and the first thing I noticed was the very smooth draw. The first taste was that of a barky leathery flavor. as I smoked this stick it just got better. flavors became bolder and thr burn was awesome. The ash was a very compacted and white. the cigar burned evenly from beginning 'til the end. I was convinced to buy a box or two to have in my humidor. For those that like bold flavorable sticks...Don't pass this one bye..It's well worth the time and money.
