My Weekend Cigars: La Aurora 107 Robusto

Once past the first inch, the smoke began to settle in, becoming more peppery with some leathery notes, wood, and a hint of sweetness on the finish that reminded me of bitter butterscotch. The cigar burned well, too, exposing a firm ash that held on almost to through the first half of the stick!

Rounding the second half, some of the peppery flavors would come and go replaced by a more earthy, full-bodied smoke with dark tobacco flavors. By the last third, it really pumped up turning into a dark, burly and spicy smoke.

I would have preferred a little more sweetness in the mix, but despite that, the smoke remained balanced and flavorful enough to literally smoke down to the last inch. (see photo).

If you like good, strong cigars that deliver lots of dark tobacco flavor without being overpowering, this cigar may be right in your wheelhouse. Well worth trying, especially for more experienced palates.

#Nowsmoking: Huntsman By Plasencia Toro

Paired with: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select Whiskey…Well-crafted. Leathery pre-light. Smoke is mellow to start. A pronounced note of chocolate sets the tone. Well-balanced flavors transition to an earthy, spicy, toasty mix with an underlying ribbon of chocolate. Whiskey reveals a nice subtle sweetness. Spice is more vivid in the last act. Full-flavored.
