The best cigar ever made...Bar None (La Aurora)!!!!
Not a big fan of MADURO. Only smoke them when forced to like in the Dominican sample pack. Had no trouble enjoying this one though. A very mild tang after taste but still strong from start to finish. Would purchase these if necessary any time.
Got a little box of double coronas as a free add on to my latest order. I let them sit in my humi for a week or so, and pulled one out to give one a try. The cigar still seemed to be a little dry, and the draw was very loose. When I got it going the cigar tasted harsh and grassy, and almost cigarette-like. The first cigar from CI that I have just thrown away - I'm glad they were free. I will give them a long nap in my humi to see if they improved. Based on the other reviews that I see of the La Aurora product, that may be the issue.
I received five of theses for free with an Internet order. Since they were free, at first I didn't think they would be all that good. But when I smoked my first one...WOW!!! This is a GOOD cigar!! Thanks CI for the free smokes that will now be added to my regular order list. It was smooth, flavorful, and burned evenly all the way to the nub. I didn't want it to end. I enjoyed it so much, I smoked two of them on the same day. I will definitely be buying more of these. Do yourselves a favor and try these babies. You will not regret it!
This cigar has to be among the best values CI has to offer, and I am a repeat customer. Not only does it have a great flavor that should please any cigar lover. In addition, it will completely satisfy your smoking experience with it's long burn time. There are cigars in my 300 count CI humidor that cost way more that this one. Yet, I find myself going to this smoke over the upper class ones time and time again. You know you have to try them, so do it now!
HI! Never smoked a preferido before. 1st inch or so a little slow on the draw. After that became VERY tasty!! Burned the heck out of my fingers getting those last few puffs!!!.... Definitely will buy again.
I prefer smaller ring size cigars and buy these in the No. 4 size, and occasionally buy them in larger sizes. They are great cigars with a great flavor from start to finish. No burn or wrapper problems, even in the wind. The small band comes off without ever damaging the wrapper, unlike some of the other brands I have tried. One of my absolute favorites at a fair price, I smoke them to about the last inch and have never had a bad one. If you like a milder cigar that is well made at a fair price give them a try.
I ordered the Minis in my recent campaign to find the best of the best cheaper than a pack of swisher sticks cigarillos. Simply put this little guy is a flawless gem of a smoke with the trademark flavor of the Dominican's finest. This is a must have mini between big stogies or just by themselves. If there was a mini Arturo Fuentes or Oliva they would be hard pressed to beat these minis.
It had a horrible taste and I will not be buying them again.
Just finished smoking one of these. I actually enjoyed it. It may be Medium to Full bodied, but felt more like a mild to medium to me. I may not be the best person for a review, but it wont hurt to give these a try. I got one in a Brown Bag Sampler. Not bad.
I absolutely LOVE the La Aurora. Miami Cigars make what I feel are by far some of the best cigars around. These babies are Cameroon wrapped which I love and flavor is med to full, but with a strength of medium. Has a nice cinnamon, caramel, and molasses type sweetness and hay.... with real nice tobacco flavor and some chocolate. The cigar is not really complex; the flavors stay pretty much through out the cigar, but the flavors are very tasty.
Not as pleasant a smoke as I had anticipated. A little bitter and some dryness. Wouldn't recommend to someone wanting a mild smoke.
