La Aurora Corojo Short Cigar Review

April 10, 2012 · Posted in Cigar Review, Short Cigar Review 

Full Disclosure: Received this cigar from Miami Cigar Co. All reviews are my own.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Corojo   |   Binder: Ecuadorian Sumatra   |   Filler: Dominican & Nicaraguan   |   Box of 25: $146.00; 5 Pack: $32.00   |   Robusto   |   5″ x 50

0/3: Good looking cigar. Very smooth to the touch and there is a good coating of oils as well. A couple of smaller, gnarled veins appear like scars. Evenly and tightly packed.

Here’s the blurb from Miami Cigar about this cigar:

La Aurora Corojo is handmade in Santiago, DR with a Corojo-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. An Ecuadorian Sumatra binder frames a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. A slow, even burn delivers a medium-strength, but full-flavored smoke that’s ideal any time of day. Woody, nutty flavors prevail, with toasty notes of savory spice in the mix.

1/3: It starts off with this nice sweet spice and then progresses into oak. Good mixture of flavors. Bright and airy.

2/3: This third is mostly sweet and woody. The spice has significantly dissipated to a point where it’s not much of a factor.

3/3: Spice makes a small comeback. It’s a tasty cigar but does have it’s limits. The flavors just aren’t that impressive, they’re good but not great.

4/3: Good draw and burn. It’s a medium bodied cigar. The flavors are good and they work well together. The flavors aren’t particularly great and there isn’t a perfect marriage of the flavors.

3.5 points

    I haven’t tried any of the La Aurora line yet. I keep seeing them in the local B&M but they have yet to jump into my hand and made me purchase them.

    @Stogies, try either the La Aurora 107 or one from the Preferidos line. Those are excellent cigars.
