La Riqueza is a Cubanesque cigar from Pete Johnson and Don "Pepin" Garcia, starting with the appearance. The band is simple and elegant, like many of the old Cuban brands, and these are more classic shapes and sizes, moving away from the modern tendencies to create large ring gauges. They're also nicely box-pressed, another old-school Habano trait.
The cigar itself is a medium-bodied blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder leaves, but what sets La Riqueza apart is the dark, leathery Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The flavor smacks of cocoa, wood and leather with a hint of pepper and a nice sweetness on the finish.
