La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse is a special cigar blend that sits atop the beloved collection of La Aroma de Cuba cigars. Since 2008, Ashton has had its revived Cuban brand—La Aroma de Cuba—produced in Nicaragua by the highly respected García family. As the collection grew over the years, it became apparent that the line needed an ultra-premium blend—something geared towards the fine-tuned palate.
Enter the La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse; the cigars were originally intended to be a shop exclusive for Ashton's own Ashton Cigar Bar, located in Philadelphia, but the project snowballed into something much more grand. In 2014, Ashton debuted Noblesse on a national scale, though the release was limited in nature. The blend proved to be so popular that size extensions followed in 2015 and 2016. And though the Noblesse remains one of Ashton's most limited offerings, the cigars are now crafted in small batches on an annual, ongoing basis.
La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse boasts some of the García family's most prized Nicaraguan tobaccos. The blend begins with an Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper, backed by a double binder (Nicaraguan Habano and Criollo) and a wide range of Nicaraguan filler leaves (Estelí, Jalapa and Namanji regions). The resulting experience is unquestionably full in flavor, showing complex flavors of dark and bitter chocolate, zesty spices, molasses, dark bread, oak, classic leather, sweet florals, and plenty of aged tobacco. With an abundance of depth, even the experienced aficionado will be delighted, as the Noblesse's complexities unfold from start to finish.
