Quick Smoke: La Aurora Preferidos Corojo #1

11 Jul 2010

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.”


This large perfecto (6 x 58) was given to me by José Blanco straight from the La Aurora aging room, where it had been sitting for close to a decade. It features an oily and veiny Dominican corojo wrapper surrounding a Dominican binder and a Dominican, Brazilian, and Cameroon filler blend. It’s immaculately balanced with cream, cedar, nuts, and a hint of cocoa. Construction is also excellent on this stick which, if you’re lucky enough to find, I thoroughly recommend you try.

Verdict = Buy.
