La Aurora Preferido cigars are one of the most sought after premium cigars for their hearty, 1903-vintage flavor and Double Perfecto shape, which has been recreated in this luxurious series. Each La Aurora Preferidos Cameroon cigar is blended with select, oak-barrel-aged Cameroon, Brazilian, and Dominican longfillers finished in naturally sweet, Grade-1 African Cameroon wrappers. The result is a consistently smooth, well-balanced, full-bodied cigar brimming with dense, complex flavor. A marvelous 'must-smoke' classic!

I don’t know about the robusto, but the corona delivered a very smooth, nutty flavor. With that, for some odd reason, La Aurora stopped making the favored corona strength.
I was absolutely shocked at the quality of this cigar. La Aurora is always good, but this cigar was far and away the best. Spicy, flavorful, smooth, peppery/spicy, well constructed, taste gets better as you smoke more, even draw/burn, a knuckle burner. Honestly, one of the best I've had.
This small Robusto lasted 70 minutes. By far, the most noteworthy feature was the exceptionally good taste and aroma. If you like a full flavored cigar, you've got to try this one. It would have scored a perfect 10 with me except for the moderately uneven burn. The burn was even at first, then about 1/2 way it became somewhat uneven. I got it even but in the last 1/4 it became uneven again. Bottom line: a great cigar and I'll be buying more. It is now one of my favorites.
bought a box of these 4 years ago and have enjoyed the treat of these cigars. great construction, easy draw, lots of smoke and they have aged wonderfully in my humidor. If you want to try a truly great cigar try this one,
I've tried everything with a La Aurora label and this lovely, oily, toothy cigar loads the mouth with barrel wood and cream. It's effectively balanced and has a cocoa/ spicy finish right down to the nub.
I smoked half the box already and the quality of this robusto is awesome. These taste better than the any of the perfectos in this line. I smoked the first release at the Big Smoke in Las Vegas 2005 and fell in love with them right away. I liked them so much my fisrt box is almost finished and the SECOND BOX is aging as we speak. Great full flavor full of cedar and tobacco. Excellent construction.
Got a 5-pack sample of all the Preferido's offered by La Aurora. This is by far the cream of the crop of the 5. The flavor and consistency this smoke provides is unparallel to none. In my opinion, this cigar's the only true competitor to the Don Carlos line.
I have three boxes put up and ordered two more they are gettting hard to find and for good reason for the price this the best all around cigar ive ever smoked
Smoked one of the Platinums this weekend. Solid construction. Wrapper was dry. Crinkled when I pinched it. It may not have been stored properly.Started nice. Too mild for my taste. Tasted likeash midway through. Dipped the end in some CrownRoyal. No help. Glad I didn't pay for this one.
