Lets fire up a Aging Room F55 Quattro and see how she handles. Aging Room Cigars are produced by Boutique Blends Cigars which is under the Oliveros Cigars umbrella. This particular Aging Room Quattro cigar is the “Espressivo” which is robusto size and measures in at 5×50. The 2003 vintage Sumatra wrapper is a rusty tan color and the aroma is a very pleasant musty tobacco. The Quattro features a nice box press shape adorned with a brown and gold label, nothing too fancy about the look but the pre-light draw reveals a perfect and I mean PERFECT resistance.
After toasting and lighting the cigar delivers a nice amount of smoke. The smoke in your mouth seems dry but not in a bad way as it’s pleasing to my palette right off the bat. A nice overriding flavor of aged tobacco is paired with a toffee sweetness on the finish. Occasionally I can taste walnut and a bit of leathery goodness.
The Aging Room Quattro burned like a champ even in the cold dry air of Colorado. This medium bodied cigar was perfect for retrohaling as it really ramped up the toffee flavor through my nostrils. There were not any dramatic flavor changes throughout but that didn’t bother me because I enjoyed the walnut toffee flavor. There was no way I was going to put this cigar down early and I smoked her all the way to the nub. I even shed a small tear when I had to finally put her down.
Would I smoke this cigar again? Absolutely! This wasn’t an especially long burning cigar but the warm flavors lingered on my palette for several hours after I was done. And for only about $7 per stick these certainly deserve a spot in the humidor.
