"Another great cigar that was a pleasure to smoke. Notes of sweet and bitter tea, honey, and burnt toast. Nice strong ash that hangs on for an inch or two. A cigar I'd want to have in my humidor and to share with friends. A nice after breakfast smoke." -Sean F. (fullermaine)
"This cigar hit on all cylinders for me... construction, draw, flavors... I’m a definite fan of this flavor profile and would recommend this to anyone who can handle full flavors and strength...I love it! My only complaint would be the resting aroma... it was not nearly as pleasant as the flavors and was sharp and harsh. Fortunately, I got to smoke this excellent cigar and enjoy the flavors it presented. "-Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
"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.)
"I really enjoyed this medium-bodied cigar. I'd probably buy more, maybe in a slightly larger ring gauge to see if the draw was a tad looser for perfection. Its wonderful and ever-changing flavors ranging from chocolate to wood notes kept me on my toes wondering what may be next. Pick this one and try it, it will not disappoint!" -John A. (Bostoneo)
La Aurora has announced the La Aurora Preferidos Hors d’Age 2021 LE. After a two-year hiatus, this limited-edition release is back. The Hors d’Age line first hit shelves in 2018, with follow-up releases in 2019 and 2020. The 2021 version comes in a 6x54 Toro that uses an Ecuadorian wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and filler from the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Nicaragua.
"This cigar wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t complex, and it was rough goings early on with a tight draw that eventually opened up to acceptable levels of airflow. While I wouldn’t seek out this cigar to smoke again, to use a favorite line my hero Larry David, “having said that” I could think of worse ways to spend 52 minutes. " -Matt Cade (CadeTNCC)
La Aurora Cigars has unveiled a new extension to their 107 line, the 107 Nicaragua. This will be La Aurora's first Nicaraguan puro, meaning it's made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco. It will still be rolled at their Dominican Republic factory.
