Although I do enjoy the La Aurora Preferidos, I can’t afford to enjoy them regularly, so I usually lean on the trusty Robusto to get me through. I’ve probably burned 7-8 boxes over the past year, and haven’t been let down yet. My current box is no different. Every cigar performs perfectly. Slow, cool burn that stays even regardless of how poorly I light the foot. It’s almost impossible to find a soft spot in any of the cigars and the draw of each has been a touch above effortless. The vein-free wrappers are so silky and smooth it almost hurts to clip the flawlessly applied cap. Flavor-wise, this cigar shows a lot of character. The Cameroon wrapper gives off soft hints of nuts that prepare your palate for a buttery smooth tanginess and woody aftertaste. These flavors remain constant right up to the end, leading the cigar into a creamy, robust finish complemented by the slightest bit of pepper. Even without the fancy finish, this cigar will satisfy the palate no matter what your preference in strength may be. The deliciously complex flavors coat the palate instantly upon lighting, never hinting at fading into the ever so boring world of one-dimensional Dominicans, while the immaculate construction allows you to fully enjoy this fantastic handmade every time you light one up. I strongly recommend you try these if you haven’t already.
