La Aurora Preferidos Cameroon #1
6 x 58 - Natural - Box of 25
La Aurora Preferido #1 cigars are BIG double perfectos blended with specially-aged, full-bodied Dominican tobaccos surrounded by oak barrel-aged African Cameroon wrappers. Crafted to recapture the hearty flavor and aroma of the original 1903 blend, these cigars are a must try. So, try 5 now!
Average draw. The smell was nice but the flavor didn t deliver. Very bland and uneventful smoke. Wouldn t try again.
This is supposed to be a flagship cigar for La Aurora, but it falls short of its promise. This cigar is not complex or unique and burns unevenly with a difficult draw at the begging. This is is simply not worth the hype of the price.
I'm a huge fan of Cammy wrappers so I decided to break down and order a 5-pack. I certainly am happy I did. They're perfectly constructed, have a great appearance, excellent burn, and a ton of flavor... who's profile is very "Cuban-esque" with loads of leather and roasted nuts. My only complaint is that the size description (6 x 58) is deceiving. The shape of the cigar lends itself to a quicker smoke, and I wanted this to last all night long.
I purchased a 5 pack and gave them about 5 months in my humi. While they are well made and burn perfectly, the level of flavour from the cigar is in my opinion, sub par. I've smoked all 5 and while i somewhat enjoyed them, i won't be a repeat purchaser. There are much better preferidos out there for less money. But they do look beautifull!
