Aging Room Pura Cepa is the latest offering from Rafael Nodal, owner of the Aging Room brand. Pura Cepa means "pure bred" in Spanish and this is in reference to the fact that the Pura Cepa line is a Nicaraguan puro. A puro is the term for a cigar made with only tobacco from a single country, of which traditional Cuban cigars are best known.
Pura Cepa contains tobaccos from all of the major growing regions in Nicaragua: Jalapa, Condega, Estelí, and Ometepe. Pura Cepa is only the second Aging Room brand ever made outside of the Dominican Republic (along with the Aging Room Pelo de Oro), offering a stellar example of what can be accomplished when a boutique brand steps out of its comfort zone. Highlighting Nicaragua's well-known fiery flavor characteristics, smokers can expect a full body and zesty flavors of hardwoods, natural tobacco, pepper spice, bubbly cola (through the nostrils), and campfire smokiness.
