Its great to be back to reviewing cigars and for my first review of 2011 I’m reviewing the relatively new La Aurora Broadway Series. Currently the Broadway is available in one size, a Sumo Toro (5.75 x 54) and features a double wrapper of Ecuadorian-grown, Sumatra-seed and Nicaraguan leaves, a Dominican Corojo binder and filler tobaccos grown in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru. The La Aurora Broadway Series is only available from tobacconists in New York for $12.75 (price includes NY 75% tax).
The La Aurora Broadway Series proved to be a flavorful treat. The core earthy and cedar flavors are hard to compete with and the sprinkling of spicy notes was a bonus to my enjoyment. I like the concept that La Aurora and Alec Bradley are doing to help the cigar scene in New York and I hope other manufacturers do the same. The $12.75 price tag seem about right for the Broadway and I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up more. With that being said, if the industry wants to show even more support, they should try to keep these edition out of the double digit price range.
