A few years ago Ashton decided to release Nicaraguan cigars, made by My Father Cigars, under the name La Aroma de Cuba (La Aroma Del Caribe in Europe). The brand was a success and several offsprings were born, the latest is a limited release under the name Noblesse. The original release was called coronation and is a 6 ½x52 double corona made from Nicaraguan tobacco with an Ecuadorean Habano rosado wrapper.
The cigar looks great, a smooth reddish wrapper with one of the most beautiful cigar bands I’ve ever seen. The veins are thin and the wrapper has a nice shine although the flash makes the vein looks bigger on the pictures. The cigar has a nice barnyard aroma. The construction feels good although there is a small dent in the middle. The cold draw is a little tight and gives me hay, pepper and raisin.
The first flavor I get is wood with a really mild pepper. The flavors are quite dry. The pepper slowly disappears, I only taste a nice woody flavor.
Halfway the cigar gets more spicy again with more red pepper to the wood flavor.
The draw is just fine, and the cigar has a nice aroma. The ash is silver gray and reasonable firm. The smoke is medium thick. The cigar is medium to medium full, both in strength and in flavor. The burn is slow and straight. The cigar is one dimensional but tasty. The smoke time is about 2 hours.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, once in a while.
