Quick Smoke: La Aurora Guillermo León Belicoso

25 Sep 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.”

After seeing my colleagues rave about the Gran Toro and Gran Corona versions of the new Guillermo León, I decided to try a Belicoso (6.25 x 52) for myself. I’m glad I did. This Ecuadorian-wrapped smoke boasts superb construction and a harmonious profile of milk chocolate, spice, earth, and syrup. It has a rare combination of body and balance, a testament to the intricacy of its recipe, which includes dual binders—one corojo and one Cameroon—and a four-country filler blend. Definitely one of the top new releases of 2010.

Verdict = Buy.

    I want to buy one. Or a box. Are they not yet in stores?

    A representative of Miami Cigar & Co. told me via email this morning that, to date, Guillermo León has only been released at select shops in Florida. But expect these cigars to start hitting tobbaconist shelves nationwide in a few weeks.
