Ashton's La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor brand has made its mark on Cigar Aficionado's tasting panel. The Belicoso size was the magazine's No. 2 cigar of 2011, scoring 95 points, classic on our 100-point scale. After that accolade, Ashton decided to make a stronger, one-size version of the smoke and the result is the superb Maximo. Made with a similar, but not identical, blend to that of the traditional Mi Amor line, the Maximo gets some of its more powerful flavor via a high-priming wrapper leaf grown from Cuban seeds in Mexico's lush San Andrés Valley. The well-made cigar has hickory and almond notes that lead into hints of dark chocolate and earth. It's another memorable smoke from the Garcias and Levins.
