La Aurora preferidos 1903 ruby

This perfecto has a dark, rough Connecticut broadleaf wrapper with some veins, a Dominican binder and filler from Brazil, Dominican Republic and Cameroon. The 5 x 54 cigar feels hard but the predraw is fine and gives me a dry but peppery feeling in my mouth. The aroma is a mild hay and barnyard smell.

I can taste coffee and some leather, both very bitter and not really pleasant. After an inch the flavor changed to a creamy chocolate with pepper as supporting flavor. Soon the leather returns and the creamy chocolate becomes the aftertaste. Unfortunately the cigar also has a moldy flavor for a while. The finale is mild chocolate and pepper again.

The amount of smoke is quite low, and it is thin. The ash however is firm and pretty. This is a medium bodied, mild to medium flavored cigar

La Aurora preferidos 1903 emerald

This nice 5 inch 54 ring perfecto with its oily wrapper with stains and spots comes with in a very nice cone shaped tube and has a nice band with a lion on it, which I like as I am a leo. The cigar has a deep dark aroma of dried grass and hay and the predraw is good.

A sweet tobacco comes to mind when I light the cigar, and soon a flavor which I cannot describe as I don’t recognize it. This cigar is pretty mild but yet full flavored. After a while I could taste some mild leather. The draw is very good and the cigar produces lots of smoke.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, not a full box, but it’s a nice ‘once in a while’ smoke
