From the esteemed master blender Omar Aleman, the Cubanacan Habano Cigar is one of three flavors in the titular series. This particular stick has done well to carry this prestigious line of products, with critics across the net remarking on the rapid growth and user base of the company in general. The operating Mederos family is a group that has Cuban roots and an involvement in rolling stogies as far back as the 19th century.

What’s especially different than most manufacturers is the fact that the Mederos family grows their own tobacco as well. Factories in Nicaragua and elsewhere provide the special fertile-grown tobacco that’s used in all of Mederos’ products. This tobacco is a mixture of both Ecuadorian and Nicaraguan blends, while the binder of the stick is Ecuadorian. Naturally, the filler is Nicaraguan, which does well to fill out this medium-bodied stogie.

The appearance of the Cubanacan Habano Cigar is understated, with the company’s brown and Colorado red colors taking center stage. There is very slight marbling across the length of the stick, as well as some light oil and veins on the surface. Interestingly, this particular stogie has undergone somewhat of a redesign of sorts, with the band being changed to a white background and metallic red font. Aleman’s namesake is still sported front and center, while it’s now surrounded by a few colored rings.

Reviewers have raved the smoking experience of this particular stick. The pre-light draw has been described as having very light, sweet notes. Though the aroma lacks complexity, it has been remarked as being simple yet satisfying. The company’s home-grown sweet tobacco shines throughout the duration of the smoke, while the first third of the burn contains some peppery flavors as well. There are additional wood tones that also come in at this point, with many reviewers agreeing on a cedar-like flavor.

The second half of the Cubanacan Habano Cigar carries a very unique flavor profile, different than that of its competitors. Critics have raved over the syrup-like sweetness of the latter half of the burn. Sweet, yet not overpowering cocoa notes also round out the flavor profile mid-way through the burn. The chocolate flavors from before become a bit more noticeable throughout the end of the burn, while the syrup notes take a backseat to the sweet tobacco flavor. Reviewers agree that the overall profile of the stick is never titled too far in any direction, instead maintaining a very balanced and even burn throughout.

The final burn has been described as performing well, and while the line is a bit jagged, it’s otherwise even and strong. The Cubanacan Habano Cigar does well to carry the Medero name and complement its sister Bloodline product line. The advantages of using its own tobacco really shines through in this particular stick, with most critics remarking on the cohesive flavor profile throughout this line of products.
