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.
