La Aurora Corojo Robusto Review

La Aurora Corojo Robusto - 5 X 50. Wrapper - Ecuadorian Corojo, Binder - Ecuador, Filler - Dominican and Nicaragua. Full bodied.

Initial taste - Dry wood, nuts & spice

First Third - Spice, leather, citrus roasted nuts and some sweetness.

Second Third - Tangy spice, sweet leather, roasted nuts and some underlying woodiness. Excellent balance and amazing complexity.

Last Third - Continuation of the tangy/citrus spice, sweet leather, roasted nuts and wood. Very long finish of citrus spice and leather.

Construction, burn and draw were perfect.

I absolutely love this cigar. It has an excellent flavor profile with incredible complexity and great balance. I have not gotten any nutty flavor in a lot of cigars lately, but this cigar had it. A nubber! I just might have my new favorite cigar from La Aurora - right up there with the 107. MSRP on this vitola is $6.00 which is a great value for a cigar that delivers so much. Highly recommended.
