One thing La Aurora does not lack is capital. They’ve got access to some of the finest tobaccos in the world and when it comes to quality, money is no object (as evidenced by their $10+ Preferidos blend among others). For Superiores, they deployed these tobaccos with the goal of creating a category-busting, value priced handmade blend. Well, it never really got off the ground sales-wise. But I got my greasy paws on all of it - each in great sizes (Robusto, Toro, Belicoso, Churchill). So now instead of a good value, it’s ridiculously cheap, I mean borderline obscene. With good quality tobaccos, decent smoothness and copious flavor - all for under two bones a stick - you’ve got yourself no-brainer closeout deal.
