La Aurora Escogidos cigars (AKA 'The Chosen Ones') are special cigars indeed. Wrapped in your choice of genuine Cameroon or Maduro wrappers, they contain a medium-bodied blend of pristine Dominican tobaccos. At one time you couldn't get your hands on an Escogido unless you visited the La Aurora factory in Santiago, DR, or received one from a La Aurora sales rep. Now they're yours for the taking, and at a nice price, too. Try this limited-run, hard-to-find cigar today!
Great draw. Well balanced, a little peppery at first but by 1/3 smooth, light spice, leather, razor sharp & fast burn, above average smoke production, medium strength. I enjoyed it in the morning with coffee and Irish cream, also great around sunset with a nice Brandy. Recommend this as a first Maduro for new smokers. Got a little charged my first 1/2 I was puffing too hard and fast . Cut 1/2 then re-ligh. smooth and even down to the nub. NOT a complex maduro but a consistent performer SUPERBLY priced. GREAT VALUE!!! get a box.
