Sol Cubano Cuban Cabinet
Size: 6 x 50 (Magnum/Toro)
Wrapper: Ecuador Habano
This cigar is manufactured by Oliva and blended by AJ Fernandez (the creative force
behind Man o War, La Herencia Cubana, Indian Tabac 10th Anniversary, Padilla Habano,
RP Fusion, and several others).
I aged this box nearly two years at a high RH (70-80%), then moved it to lower RH (65%) for a few months before smoking. And it was worth the wait. The caramel-colored wrapper developed tooth and the prelight aroma ripened. This cigar had a slightly spicy flavor profile and was medium-to-full in body.
The best way to describe this cigar is that it is very similar to Man O' War--I suspect the wrappers are identical--with perhaps just a smidge less strength
and spice. There was no floral flavors, like the LHC.
