Cigar Review: Aging Room Pura Cepa Mezzo
Created, in part, by Nestor Plasencia, the Aging Room Pura Cepa is a cigar I'm VERY excited about. After smoking, enjoying, and reviewing the Plasencia Alma Fuerte a few months ago, I've been ready for another great cigar. I hope this Aging Room is that great cigar. With 100% Nicaraguan tobacco (it says so right on the label), I'm sure the Aging Room Pura Cepa will be wonderful.
Line: Pura Cepa, Mezzo
Size: 6 x 54

Learn About This Cigar
The Aging Room Pura Cepa is an incredibly well-made cigar. From the very beginning, the burn was almost perfect. The draw was smooth, and the flavors were complex.
However, there was an area at the head of the cigar where the cap didn't quite cover the end of the wrapper leaf. That problem should have been fixed at the factory. And, during the final third, there was some harshness and bitterness that jumped out. Additionally, I didn't just LOVE the flavors.
I'm going to give the Aging Room Pura Cepa a CigarScore of 4 because, while it's not my favorite mix of flavors, it might just be what you're looking for. I can't knock this cigar down entirely just because I didn't love it.
