Quick Smoke: La Aurora Preferidos Maduro Robusto

20 Dec 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

La Aurora Preferidos Maduro Robusto

Maybe it’s just me, but La Aurora seems to be an often-overlooked and under-appreciated cigarmaker. Case in point would be the La Aurora Preferidos Maduro Robusto. Its under-stated band surrounds a veiny but oily Brazilian wrapper. Once lit, I found a medium-bodied smoke with dry chocolate, cinnamon, and tea flavors on the finish. It’s tremendously balanced and expertly constructed.

Verdict = Buy.

    This stick was like sucking on a brick wall. Draw was terrible and flavors were lacking. I wouldn't reccomend this stick to anyone.
