La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte

Since the Rocky Patel Winter 2009 was released, I’ve had a mini love affair with the Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. So last week when I saw the Pennsylvania Broadleaf sampler at Cigar.com I had to pick it up. In the sampler was the La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte from AJ Fernandez. I’m a huge fan of his Man O’ War and Diesel cigars, so I was pretty psyched to try is cigar.

The wrapper is such a dark shade of brown that the cigar looks nearly black. I wouldn’t consider this cigar to be veiny, but there were a few small veins that ran across the wrapper. Pre-light aroma can best be described as classic barnyard.

My old man sat in on this review, and as always he adds a nice perspective.

At $3.00 per stick I think it’s hard to go wrong with this cigar. Although I don’t think it is as flavorful as some other cigars with a Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, it sill delivered great flavor with a solid medium body. Construction on these cigars should also be commended. Both draw and burn were excellent and despite dropping his cigar on the garage floor, my dad’s cigar never cracked or burned poorly. I’d recommend trying this cigar. I feel like it’s a good cigar to have around, and the price-point makes it a great bargain for a box purchase. If you’d like to try this cigar, and two other sticks with the same wrapper, you might want to try the Pennsylvania Broadleaf Sampler.

Now in the video my dad asked what retrohaling is all about. I tried explaining it, but Doc from Stogie Fresh actually does a much better job in this article.

Great review and right to the point. I have eyeing that cigar up on some sites but was hestitant to purchase as I already have so many dogs in my humidor, it should be called a kennel. Now I am tempted to try some of these.

[…] Chris over at Nice Tight Ash continues his love affair with the Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper and smokes a value stick, the La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte. Toast it here. […]

I bought three of these and had one of them last week. It was good but not great but I think some time in the humidor with really bring out some rich flavors in these.

Very stimulating blog commentary… definitely something to think about =). Thanks for sharing this.

Smoking this I type. Not as heavy as I expected, but seems to be burning. A good medium “everyday” smoke for the price point.
