"Not bad, but not great"
Excellent construction, shape and burn. Exquisite to look at..but flavor is not my style. First third is a little sour. Eventually gets some wood and grass, but never really does much for me.

"What's the hype?"
Perhaps the most over-priced cigar on the market. As much as I try, I can't find anything special about this smoke other than it's a unique shape for a connecticut. Save you money.

One of these cigars was included in the top shelf sampler. I was excited to try it based on the ratings, and the fact that I enjoy the higher ring gauge cigars. Unfortunately the taste of this cigar was simply off-putting. The draw and burn was fine, the construction was good, but I would be hesitant even to try another of this cigars, especially if I had to pay for it. Perhaps it was a single bad result, but I am not sure I will take the time to see.

This is one of the best looking cigars I had ever seen. However, it was hard to light and keep lit at first. The draw was hard until I was about 1/4 of the way into it and then it finally opened up. If you are considering a perfecto-shape for a cigar, please remember that this one may be disconcertingly hot to the touch as it is being smoked. As usual, the flavor opened up shortly after the ash reached the fuller part of the cigar's body. This is an excellently constructed cigar and worth the experience.

"One of My Bests"
One of the "Tippy Top" cigars that I love to smoke. I have a whole row of them in my humidor. Sometimes I hate to smoke it because it's so good.

"Among The Very Best I've Ever Smoked"
I realize we all have different taste, but the La Aurora Preferido is one of the very best cigars I have had the pleasure of smoking.

Excellent smoke. At first, it was hard to light and had a tough draw. I opened it up with a scratch awl and it was good to go from there on out. Flawless construction and very firm. Smooth but hints of pepper at the light with a perfect ash. The 2nd hand passive smoke was sweet and aromatic. This stick got better and better as it neared the end. I rated it an "8" about one third thru but settled on a solid "10" when I reluctantly had to put it out.
