La Aurora Preferidos Connecticut #2
La Aurora Preferido cigars continue La Aurora's 100-plus years of traditional cigar excellence. For the Connecticut (Sapphire) edition, master torcedors deftly roll a complex blend of oak barrel-aged Cameroon, Brazilian and Dominican longfillers into tawny, 7-year-aged Connecticut leaf. The result is a well-balanced, yet ultra-smooth full-bodied cigar with a marvelously complex character augmented by a redolent aroma. A must-smoke dream cigar for the most ardent cigar lover. Order some now!
Purchased these on auction and all but one were a super tight draw. Excellent flavor. May try a different preferido another time as the Aurora/Leon Jimines line is very good.
From start to finish the La Aurora preferidos #2 Connecticut's are beatiful not only to look at but to hold and smoke.Rather pricey but what isn't no adays for quality.Do yourself a favor when u have time to cut one and light it up,be somewhere where u can enjoy it and give the stick the respect it deserves ,,,lol..goes well on cold morning with hot cup of coffee ..enjoy....
My buddy bought a box of these and let them rest in his humidor for over a month. This cigar drew poorly from the start. the burn was uneven and no matter what I did it stayed that way. My buddy's burned flawlessly and drew great. The one I had tasted bitter and harsh, my friends was smooth. I think if your smoking a lesser priced cigar you can expect a bad one every now and again. But at this price they should all be perfect. I did get a chance to smoke another about a month later, and it was very good. But I have smoked cigars that were just as good, and did not leave my wallet bleeding.
A buddy of mine ordered a 5 pack of these bad boys and was kind enough to share. 40 minutes later I was purchasing a 5 pack of my own. This is a deliciously smooth smoke from start to finish. I'm partial to CT Wrappers but this one blew most other cigars out of the water. A wonderful taste through and through that you would expect from La Aurora. I'd buy a box if I could afford it. Just an all around excellent cigar.
