La Aurora 110th Corojo cigars were introduced at IPCPR in 2013 to help them celebrate the famed factory's 110th year in business. After years of blending, they finally found one that is both perfectly balanced and complex. It starts with Nicaraguan & Dominican fillers, plus a rare Piloto Cubano hybrid tobacco, an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and a luscious Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper. A truly fitting and VERY affordable cigar to help celebrate over a century of making premium cigars. Get yous now!
This box had been pre-opened and re-shrunk wrapped. The cellophane wrappers were all crinkled. Odd for a new box.The cigars are pretty veiny though not too heavy veined. The bunch is a bit loose for my preference though that is an unfortunate quality of many cigars the past three or so years. The first draw had a sharp metallic taste. But a quarter inch in and it disappeared. Not as full bodied as I d hoped, on the low end of medium. Great draw and burn the day after receiving them. No issues with construction other than the loose bunch. Good volume of smoke on the draw as well with a pleasant after taste. At the sale price it is a good buy. With some age it may get a bit better.
I first noticed the gorgeous, silky smooth wrapper on this cigar. The draw and the burn were both excellent. Coming in at a medium in body and low in strength, this cigar gave me notes of cedar, nuts, and bread, with spice on the retrohale. The smoke output was fantastic and slightly creamy on the palate. Great cigar!
Harsh and spotty construction. Difficult to keep smoking for the entire length of stick. La Aurora usually makes a solid, enjoyable smoke, but these are like forcing yourself to smoke Swishers for an hour straight.
