Aging Room Havao is the second cigar released under the Boutique Blends cigar brand umbrella. The Aging Room Havao is a lighter-bodied variation of the brand, with an Ecuador wrapper that delivers notes of sweet almond paste and creamy citrus. It was one of the top-scoring coronas in our October issue, featuring Usher on the cover. Nodal's small company is creating one superior cigar after another." This niche cigar brings Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade into the Boutique Blends wrapper repertoire. This niche cigar brings Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade into the BB wrapper repertoire. This cigar is a very solid smoking experience. This small batch limited release is the follow up to the hot hit cigar Aging Room M356. This is a Dominican Puro with all high quality components grown of DR origin. The boutique aged binder and filler are Dominican Havano Criollo. A smooth silky wrapper with few veins or seams is double banded with a classic flavor profile of creamy wood. The Havao starts out with a shot of pepper, joined later by vanilla with a cool burn and never a hint of harshness on the finish. A flawless draw and lots of smoke make this a superstar cigar. This robust premium smoke is on the upside of mild to medium with a pop. This is an evolutionary cigar perfect for the cigar novice that the experienced cigar enthusiast will also enjoy and appreciate and a cigar we would smoke again and again.
