La Aurora Preferido #1 cigars are BIG double perfectos blended with specially-aged, full-bodied Dominican tobaccos surrounded by oak barrel-aged African Cameroon wrappers. Crafted to recapture the hearty flavor and aroma of the original 1903 blend, these cigars are a must try. So, try 5 now!
I'm a huge fan of Cammy wrappers so I decided to break down and order a 5-pack. I certainly am happy I did. They're perfectly constructed, have a great appearance, excellent burn, and a ton of flavor... who's profile is very "Cuban-esque" with loads of leather and roasted nuts. My only complaint is that the size description (6 x 58) is deceiving. The shape of the cigar lends itself to a quicker smoke, and I wanted this to last all night long.
One of my favorite cigars on the planet. Expensive, tho. Medium to full bodied. Construction, burn, draw all consistently wonderful. I've smoked maybe 15 of these, and I have yet to have a problem.
Perfect draw, and plenty of smoke. Balanced spice with that ‘wild’ tang often found on an African wrapper.
This is supposed to be a flagship cigar for La Aurora, but it falls short of its promise. This cigar is not complex or unique and burns unevenly with a difficult draw at the begging. This is is simply not worth the hype of the price.
