La Aurora Barrel Aged Churchill cigars are made with ruddy, sweet-smelling Dominican Maduro wrappers, Dominican binders, and Dominican & Nicaraguan binders. The tobaccos have all been aged for four years in Dominican oak barrels once used for aging rum, yielding a flavorful, med-full cigar. The easy draw produces a cloud of aromatic white smoke that starts off peppery, with rich tobacco flavors. It mellows to reveal notes of spice, building slowly in body & complexity. A long, luxurious experience.
More of a lonsdale stick in my never to be humble opinion. I am biased to the spicy larger ring gage sticks so I tried this one based on article of mid-Summer performance for new sticks. You know the guy author I m talkin about, never worked a hard day in his life and scored his cushy seat job cause his old man taught him some of the finer things in life. When he graduated college he soon discovered the only skill he really had was an ability to translate his discriminating pallet to the printed word. So, if he got this wrong, it s wedgyville for this smug pri##. Alas, he got it right. My only problem with the stick is it lasted only 45 minutes.
This is a great everyday cigar! The cigars are consistent and have great flavor. Draw is good and produce a nice smoke. I love the after taste of this cigar, peppery and woodsy in my opinion. They claim that the leaves are barreled aged for 4 years, but I don t taste the difference from any other good leaf. One complaint, the burn on these cigar are weak .. you definitely have to keep an eye on these before they burn out. Other than that... it s great tasting cigar.
I bought the La Aurora, because I like finding great low cost sticks, and the marketing got me. At about $2 a stick it s hard to say anything bad. But the barrel aging I m not so sure they should claim. If you want a cigar to pass the time, then it s not bad. But if you smoke it after a really goof cigar, you will be sadly disappointed. But it s a low cost cigar.Last, out of the box of 20 there was a pretty big disparage is draw and burn. One I had to throw away because it just would stay lit.Would I buy them again? Maybe
