La Musa Mοῦσα Review

The Label Factor:

This cigar has been on my radar for some time because of this label. It’s in Greek! I don’t know of any other cigars that feature anything besides Spanish or English on the label.  If Uncle Jessie from Full House were shopping around for a cigar, he’d probably settle on this one.

La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor Review

The Label Factor:

This cigar looks amazing. The visual appeal doesn’t only stem from the elaborate double bands, but also from the eye catching yellow/blue/red color scheme and the gorgeous dark brown San Andres wrapper. To me, this is what a cigar should look like. If I ever get into the business of directing movies and I need to shoot a scene where someone is smoking a cigar, it will be the La Aroma De Cuba Mi Amor. I’ll make a movie star out of this stick.
