La Aurora Preferido cigars continue La Aurora's 100-plus years of traditional cigar excellence. For the Connecticut (Sapphire) edition, master torcedors deftly roll a complex blend of oak barrel-aged Cameroon, Brazilian and Dominican longfillers into tawny, 7-year-aged Connecticut leaf. The result is a well-balanced, yet ultra-smooth full-bodied cigar with a marvelously complex character augmented by a redolent aroma. A must-smoke dream cigar for the most ardent cigar lover. Order some now!
A buddy of mine ordered a 5 pack of these bad boys and was kind enough to share. 40 minutes later I was purchasing a 5 pack of my own. This is a deliciously smooth smoke from start to finish. I'm partial to CT Wrappers but this one blew most other cigars out of the water. A wonderful taste through and through that you would expect from La Aurora. I'd buy a box if I could afford it. Just an all around excellent cigar.
I found the #2 connecticut the perfect smoke when I'm done with my work day and don't want to spend an hour smoking a good cigar. This 5" cigar is absolutely wonderful and one doesn't need to spend all day with it.The flavor is a bit spicey towards the last 1/3 but excellent taste along overall and the consistency of the smoke is unmatched.
...Taste! As much as I try, I've yet to be floored with the Connecticut wrapper. This cigar while having a perfect draw, construction and burn had a totally underwhelming flavor profile. It s not bad just plain and simple, too mild for my palette.
