Picked up this La Aurora pack on a whim about a month ago. Maybe I'd hit a noob with it, maybe I'd keep as a impromptu gift, or just hold on to it.


Well, with the 'Rona thing happening, me constantly moving it around and a bit of boredom, I decided to go through the line up myself. A fun tasting excersize, if anything.

So, despite the picture order, I'm going to go light to dark wrapper. At least according to my eyes.

First up, La Aurora Preferidos Connecticut (Sapphire).


Buttery smooth and shockingly sweet. After an initial touch up, the burn line is perfect so far.

Remember how shocked I was at the sweetness of the Connecticut? Well, it's got to be the fillers of this line of cigars. This Corojo has that same underlying sweetness, but with a little spice and nuttiness. The last third truley reminds me of a cuban cigar.

Again, excellent construction and burn up to the the last third when the corojo wrapped cracked a bit.
