La Aurora Robusto
"First few draws are okay but then...."
I received one of these in the Tantalizing Ten sampler and at first I thought I was going to disagree with the negative reviews until they were proven right. It was very easy to light and had good white ash. The first few draws had decent flavor and was a medium draw. Flavor to me was mild pepper with a little sweet but then a quarter way into the stick it just stopped having any flavor. Just a little peppery flavor that caught in the back of the throat and nothing else. I only made it half way through before putting it out. Very disappointing.

"VERY disappointing"
Wouldn't stay lit. Extremely tough draw,while the outer wrapper comes unravelled. Threw the last 1/3 away.Only plus was decent flavor, if you could extract it.My last Aurora for sure.

"Awful, stay away from these cigars"
I made a mistake of buying La Aurora sampler containing one Barrel Aged cigar and had high anticipations for it after seeing them in the CA Top 25 ratings. Either the cigars that were in the sampler were not genuine La Auroras or the CA 'experts' got tipped for putting Barrel Aged in the ratings. This cigar was THE worst I smoked in a number of years. Awful bitter taste (looks like underfermented), terrible tight draw, tunneling all the way. I gave up after smoking half of it, had to use a mouthwash immediately and now I am struggling with irritated throat and nose. Shame to La Aurora for making this crap and to Famous for selling it.

La Aurora Sublimes (Tube)
"Great short smoke that travels well"
These are a staple short travel smoke in my humidor. They are a nice short smoke for those colder outdoor smoking days and for travel. I travel for work and camp/kayak. The tubes make for perfect protection from bag damage wheter it be a briefcase or a pack. The smoke is typical Cameroon. Nutty, coffee, leather notes. Sometimes a bit inconsistent on the fire up but they always smooth out and finish strong. They have a nice medium color and they are not the prettiest sticks but they smoke well. I put them on par with the Cohiba Pequenos, another short smoke staple in my hunidor. About 20-30 minutes of flavorful enjoyment.

La Aurora Principes Flavors Assortment Sampler
"Too much flavouring"
I smoke Principles as may daily quick smoke, and wjen I saw the flavored line I thought I would give them a try. I tried the Rum first, and it was a like putting a powdered stick of candy in yout mouth. I did noy care for the intense smell or flavors. The flavoring took away from the smooth light taste of a Principles regular which I enjoy.I never smoked flavored cigars before as I did not see a point. If you like candy you may want to suck on these instead of smoking them. All you real smokers avoid this flavor line and stick with the original Principles and you will not be disapointed.
