Rojas Cigars Peruvian Gold Aged 11 Months

(3 customer reviews)

$12.00

Tasting Notes: The body has fresh-cut oak, vanilla, and faint cinnamon. The foot is dried florals. The cold draw is dried peaches, red pepper, salt, and cocoa butter. The first third starts with oak, honey, black and white pepper, bourbon barrel, vanilla, and sandalwood. It starts softly and progresses in flavor throughout the entire cigar. The second third sees notes of confectioners’ sugar, honey, cinnamon, fried dough, honeysuckle, and the retro has charred wood and black pepper. This thing is a flavor bomb. In the final third, things get intense. I get notes of all of the above except now they are mending together and becoming concentrated. Sugars and cinnamon, oaks and woods, floral intensity, sweet, salty, and umami. I could not rate this cigar any better. I am so impressed.

Pairing Notes: Vanilla custard. Bourbon. Bourbon. Bourbon. Sweet tea. Black tea. Cognac. Peaty scotch. Ginger ale. Butterscotch. Churro. Anything cinnamon. Anything vanilla.

Noel Rojas. A master blender, factory owner, undeniably CUBAN. This man is so authentic he even spent time in a Cuban prison before emigrating. Life on this side of communism has been very good to our friend Noel, and in turn, he has been good to us. Blessing the cigar industry with some of the finest Nicaraguan cigars over the past several years, you’d better get used to seeing his name around the club. My job is to search for the best and most authentic. And this is a situation I could not pass up on. In Cuba, Noel worked on tobacco farms. He has studied tobacco with the biggest names in the industry. As a young man, he was told a story by a famous Cuban grower that tobacco, cigar tobacco, was actually from Peru originally. They had taken it up the Amazon river and across the Caribbean to Cuba hundreds of years prior. So when Noel got the chance to go to Peru and meet the farmers he jumped at it. After befriending an Italian man who owns the farm that used to sell Peruvian tobacco to Zino Davidoff, he made a deal with the man. He asked him to sell him one lot of tobacco every year for the next ten years. The cigar has become Noel’s daily smoke. Upon meeting Noel, he rolled me several cigars as you can see on the Privada YouTube page. We went over blend after blend before sitting down for lunch. After lunch, he handed me this cigar, same size, and shape, and told me the story of Peru. He said, “I do not sell this cigar, it is only for me.” That was over a year ago. Thankfully I’m a damn good salesman because, boys and girls, you are smoking the Peru AKA the Peruvian Gold by Noel Rojas. A cigar he swore to keep only for himself. Man, I love my job!

    Man this thing is amazing. Honestly might put it up there in my top 5 ever. Straight umami bomb! It had transitions all the way through & keep me inticed all the way to the burning finger nub. However Noel rolls is perfect. Nice cool smoke with flavor transitions that kept it tasty way past the end. Burned razor tight even & stayed cool with a perfect cherry the whole way. Thanks Noel & privada! Banger!!! I’d rate it a 96, even on a ten point scale. Realizing the 6+1 I ordered won’t be enough. Get em while their hot/in-stock. These should sell fast.

    Very tasty. Creamy floral smoothness with a nice peppery bite. I got some fruitiness to this one maybe stone fruit of some sort. It has a unique profile and not too strong nicotine wise. Had some Glenlivet 14 yr Cognac barrel single malt before enjoying this delicious stick. Recommended for sure.
