La Aurora

Size name: Robusto
Length: 5.00
Ring Gauge: 50
Wrapper color: Medium Brown
Strength: Medium

I opened up the humidor today and decided on the La Aurora Robusto that I received in my CI sampler last month.

After taking off the cellophane the cigar seemed pretty average. It really didn’t appear to be anything special. It had a nice semi-soft feel to it and looked to be well constructed.

This stick punched and lit without any effort what so ever. The burn was good and the resting smoke was light and white.

The initial puff from this cigar was loose. The flavor was rather neutral with nothing standing out on the pallet. For most of the cigar this was what the flavor was like.

After a few short puffs the draw firmed up and was excellent. I noticed some hints of spice on some random puffs. This seemed completely random and was a nice surprise every now and again. The burn seemed a little faster than I’m used to, while staying cool and retaining the smoothness I had hoped for.

When it came time to remove the band it slid off with no trouble at all. In addition to the spice that randomly became apparent there was a twist of salty flavor as well as pepper. This led to an enjoyable smoke. From one puff to the next I really didn’t know what to expect.

I smoked this cigar down to about a half inch long. To me, this cigar seemed completely effortless to smoke. Everything just seemed to happen just the way I hoped for, from the cap cutting smooth as silk to the band sliding off with no resistance.

  1. Hey guys!
    Glad to see you review the “old faithful” La Aurora! I think this is an often over-looked line for those wanting a mild-medium bodied smoke that’s dependable every time. It’s one I often will recommend to a new cigar smoker. The #4 as well as the Robusto won’t wow you with “in your face” flavors, but demonstrate a smooth, well aged tobacco flavor with muted highlights as you noted. Thanks for the review!

  2. Last weekend I met a roller that the local shop had from la aurora. he rolled quite a few, some connecticuit and some cameroon. The roller did not speak much english but was a polite guy and was very cool to watch and talk to. There were even a few special requests for a barber pole double wrap and he did that. I got one that day but I know those need a chance to sit for a while before I smoke it, so it is in the humidor now. I have not had any la aurora products so that will be my first but at least the roller impressed me with his skill.
    Also good to see Dale Roush make a comment…..Dog watch social club for the win, 54 weeks and no shows missed!

  3. Sardious,

    That sounds really cool. I havent had the oportunity to see a roller work thier magic in person. Ive been keeping an eye out but havent had any luck finiding a local event. It makes it even better that the roller took the time to take requests and make barber pole style cigars. Sounds like he was a real to notch guy.

    Dale,

    I had the oportunity to smoke another La Aurora this weekend while i was out and about. I’m becoming more impressed with them after every one i smoke. I can definately see myself buying more of these. They are are a very good cigar, and i think you hit the nail on the head as being a great reccomendation for a new cigar smoker..

    Thanks for the comments guys.
    Keep them coming, we look forward to all the feedback we can get.
