About: Aging Room Pelo de Oro Scherzo 5"1/2 * 55
An enjoyable medium to full bodied cigar. Smooth, not overly complex flavors. One drawback, though, each of the two I smoked, the wrapper began to unravel. The first one I tried was just short of a disaster. The second one, tried two weeks later, began to unravel, but not too badly.

One of the best cigars to come out in the last few years. Pretty amazing. Reminds me of cigars from when I started smoking in the early 90s.

I chose this cigar beca Luz recommended it, and she's never let me down. Very good smoke from top to bottom. Great flavor, smooth and easy draw. Full body, but not overwhelming. Like it a lot.
About: Aging Room Pelo de Oro Scherzo 5"1/2 * 55
I was afraid when I ordered this cigar. Being as it was a boutique blend and composed of what is, ostensibly, "heirloom" tobacco I thought might find this to be a new favorite but unattainable in the future. My pre light reminded me of the old tobacco barn and honestly that's what carried through the entire smoke. the start is woody and some dark dark chocolate comes through as the burn progresses but overall it is just solid tobacco with little nuance. VP Marshall probably had something like this in mind when he famously said: what this country needs is a good 5 cent cigar. 87

The Aging Room Pelo de Oro is an impressive full bodied cigar with great flavor and aroma. The Pelo de Oro is a tobacco originating from Cuba that almost disappeared because it is very susceptible to blue mold and disease. AJ Fernandez has been growing the Pelo de Oro seed in Nicaragua with some success. This cigar is unique because 90% is Pelo de Oro tobacco (both wrapper an filler, with a Habano binder). For this reason it only comes in one size, a robusto, and in very limited quantities. According to Rafael Nodal, the owner of Boutique Blends, this cigar is "as Cuban as you can get". I don't know about that, but I do know that I enjoyed it tremendously, it offered rich, complex flavor throughout and was just impossible to put down. Try it for yourself while it lasts.
