Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | Barrel Aged by Karl Malone Robusto

“Pretty solid medium bodied cigar. Not fully my cup of tea, but there were aspects of it that I certainly enjoyed. The transitions from the early portion to the mid portion as well as the mid range to the finale were also really elegant. The final portion was really the best part for my taste, and it wasn’t really a chore to get there.” -John I. (John I.)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 1985 Maduro Robusto

“Any cigar that does not become bitter near the end is a good one. The spices for most of the time were a nice blend of cinnamon and nutmeg with a great spice tingle. Towards the end the black licorice came in but was not over bearing. All in all this is one that will pair well with a single malt scotch. It would be a nice addition to my humidor.” -Eric (smalls29)

Blind Cigar Review: La Aurora | 115th Anniversary Robusto

“I really dug this cigar even though it’s not something that’s in my normal flavor profile. While the flavors were consistent throughout they were fairly satisfying. I really enjoyed the saltiness begging me to have something close at hand to drink. The burn was excellent. The ash fell through each third. This cigar was just a solid performer from start to finish.” -Isaac M. (The Nothing)

Quick Cigar Review: La Aurora | 115th Anniversary Limited Edition Belicoso

I had high expectations going into this cigar with it being the 115th anniversary and all the hype over the last year.   I have to say it did not disappoint as I enjoyed the flavor profile from beginning to end.  I had to touch up the burn once or twice but overall it performed outstandingly.   While the cigar is on the pricey side I would happily light up another given the chance.   Highly recommend this cigar.

Quick Cigar Review: La Aurora | Hors d’Age Toro

In all honestly, I don’t think I would have liked this as newbie cigar smoker. Rich aged tobacco wasn’t something that I was super into when I started smoking and it took time for me to appreciate the nuance and quality. That being said, this cigar has that rich aged tobacco flavor as its main and dominate flavor though out and depending on how much you personally enjoy it will greatly influence your thought of it. As far as burn, construction, and draw they were all top notch. Burned cool and consistence the entire time and the ash looked like stacked nickles. The smoke output was a bit lackluster to me. I enjoy a creamier and thicker smoke myself but it was far from thin. Certainly worth a try but keep a few hours free because it took just under three hours to finish this beast.

“Overall this was a solid performing smoke. A bit full bodied and strong for sure, make sure you have something in your stomach before smoking this bad boy, it will hit you going into the second half. Flavors were spot on for a full bodied smoke and diverse enough to make it interesting. Try one out, may be your next full bodied goto!” -John A. (Bostoneo)

“This is a great cigar. It’s certainly mild throughout, but the flavors were on point and is a great cigar for start the day. It reminds me why I enjoy smoking cigars; the relaxing nature, ease of smoking, and enjoyment of taking time out of the day to relax. I would certainly recommend this to someone who enjoys milder smoking experiences. ” -Alan (Eulogy)
