very good cigar...

Big smoke, small price tag
I like all the 1495 vitolas, but the corona is my favorite. Tons of flavor, and a better smoke than a lot of more expensive sticks IMO.

LaAurora 1495, Not as great as before
Like a lot of batches from CI lately, this one appears to be of diminishing quality from the same cigar purchased many times in the past. La Aurora has always been consistent for me, but this latest is harsh, hot, and cheap feeling.

1495 Belicoso
The 1495 is a great cigar. I usually get the robusto but went for the bigger belicoso this time. Same great earthy toasty spicey flavor from a well aged smooth combination of tobaccos. The burn was a little uneven on some compared to the robusto but not a problem.

Smooth smoke
Got this box ordered for my dad for his birthday and he loved them. They were in transit a few days and once he put them in his mini-humidor they were good to go.

La Aurora 1495
perfect construction, excellent price point. The wrapper is georgeous, dark and leathery, with a bit of tooth. The smoke is smooth and cool; it's a flavor bomb of spice and leather, with a lot of pepper up front. This has been a favorite of mine for a long time, and always will be a regular in my humidor rotation

Not bad
This was a big pepper bomb for me and the burn wasn't that smooth. not as pleasant as i was hoping for. However if you like a peppery cigar and one that burns with hot smoke this is a fantastic everyday smoke. I will be aging these without the cello for a year to see if it will mellow out some of that pepper. For the price I am very happy with getting a box of these great buy.

A real premium cigar at a fair price
This is about the fourth box of these that I have bought, and they have been uniformly excellent - one of the finest cigars on the market - great construction, smooth burn, even draw, and superb aroma. The sale price was very reasonable and delivery was rapid.

La Aurora 1495
This corona was just right for an after dinner smoke on the patio with a libation. Burned evenly for the most part.

A very satisfying smoke well worth the money.

Very enjoyable cigar
Robust, tasty, good burn and a great size. I thought these were closer to a Medium-Full blend than a Medium, but still smooth. The spices are prominent, just the way I like it, and this cigar has never let me down. They only get better with time in the humidor, too. A great bargain for what I considered a very good smoke.

Best cigar for the money
Best cigar for the money ever. Smooth and very satisfying. Nice even burn.

Terrible cigars
I ordered a box of 20 because of positive reviews. I had many problems with this cigars. Poor quality cigars. I offered one to a friend who has been a cigar smoker for most of his life. It was so bad that he could not finish even half of the cigar. After keeping in humidor for a few weeks still tastes terrible and doesn't burn well. Will not buy this cigars again.

Overrated
Poor construction, tight draw, goes out quite often. I only had 2 out of the 25 so far that smokes well. Won't buy it again.

Very good to excellent
This medium cigar is a favorite for me and everyone I have given one too. The medium is flavorful and robust enough for a pleasurable smoke.

Pepper bombs.
I ordered 2 five packs of these. One in corona and one in churchill. I tried the corona today after about 3 weeks in the humidor. If you're a fan of spicy sticks then these are for you. They are pepper bombs from light up to nub. Unfortunately the spice overpowers the flavor which is why I gave them a 4 out of 5. It's hard to retrohale these without choking so it makes it harder to taste all the flavors this stick has to offer. I would rate the strength a med-full. If you're a spice nut then give these a try. You won't be disappointed!

La Aurora 1845 - #4
I call the 1495 the working mans cigar. If your looking for a cigar for after dinner, forget it. If your a beer drinker, followed by a couple shots of Fire Ball during "Happy Hour" this is the cigar of choice! You want complex, it starts with Shock & Awh then your on a roller coaster ride! In my humidor is a drawer labeled "Do not open until Happy Hour"

A diamond in the rough ! A new found favorite !
Bought a box at an incredible sale price to restock my humidor. Smoked 3 cigars the day I received them right out of the box. I found them to be a tiny bit harsh with the first couple draws. They calmed down imidiately following. Each cigar had a perfect draw throughout with a peppery start then a beautiful earthy and leathery taste all the way to the nub. I have never smoked a corona, only the 50+ ring size. They got a little warm at the end, but truly a pleasurable smoke. Especially for the money. No sticks or stems as other reviews had stated. And never had to re-light. I will most definitely be purchasing more of these little gems. I'm searching for another humidor so I can age them to see what I get. They can only get better. I had a few fiends over to smoke around the fire pit and each one enjoyed this cigar as much as I. I have only been smoking cigars for a few years, but my friends have been smoking for 20 plus years each. They all said they would be purchasing these cigars in the future. My thanks go out to Cigar International for putting this special out there, or I may have never found this little beauty!!

La Aurora 1495 corona
Probably the best cigar out there for flavor/cost ratio. It's my little secret, so don't tell anyone! So is the robusto.

La Aurora 1495 Series Corona #4
1495 has been one of the best "on a budget" smokes that I have found ! The corona size is great for a winter smoke if you have to go outside to smoke as I do ! As usual , CI offered the best price + delivery ! I wish CI could open one of their superstores closer to the NY/PA border !!

Great value.
Very "Cuban" flavour. A delightful smoke.

Enjoyable Corona
This is a very enjoyable smoke. I bought a box of Corona size and was very pleased. They age well in the humidor and I would recommend a month or more. They keep tasting better the longer they sit. Almost time for another box.

An amazing smoke from start to finish. A must for any humidor

Good Smoke!
I would have to agree with an earlier post that they are not that great OTT. I ordered them a week before I returned from deployment to replenish my humidor. At first, they were a little harsh. After sitting in the humidor for a week and a half, they were ready. They are smooth and creamy with hints of leather and earthy tones. Quite tasty! I definitely recommend putting them straight in the humidor off the truck for at least a week.

La Aurora 1495 Series Carona #4
For a small Carona size cigar the La Aurora 1945 packs a punch. It is surprisingly medium to full compared to the larger torpedo size. This cigar burns evenly and has a great draw.

terrible construction
the 1st cigar was good no problems the next 7 never finished-were terrible full of sticks and chunks of who knows what, so many sticks i couldn't hardly get them to draw how dare they they rate this pos cigar as 90
Customer Testimonials
These are amazing, great tasting cigars. If these were in stock I would buy more- wow.
Aesthetically, these cigars are about as good as it gets. Beautiful look to them. I let my robustos sit in the humi from July-March before smoking them. Flavor-wise, I get distinct pepper and wood. I think that this is more of a med-full rather than a medium-bodied cigar, but that might just be me. Overall, I must confess I've been a little let down by this cigar after smoking five of them. I want to love it, but it just leaves me feeling kind of middle-of-the-road about it. I've smoked much better for much less. Alas. . .
So I received a 5'er in the "Build Your Own" mega-sampler delivered June 2013...they have been nestled all snug in my humidor...tried my first 1495 tonight after it's 6 mon nap...with a sniffer of some very limited production port wine from a small local producer...WHAT AN AMAZING STIX !! Great cigar on every front...wrapper...draw...burn...flavor profile!! Wonderful down to the nub...gotta get more of these!
I prefer the Dominican Puro, but these are really hard to beat - especially when you compare the prices.
Box worthy sticks! I love Sumatra and corojo wrappers and this binder/wrapper combo is just plain scrumptious . Construction is wonderful and the cigar is oily and pretty. I bought a box and rott I knew this cigar was a winner and reordered another box right then. Now that they have rested they are my go to stick mid day to early evening.
Complex stick with a unique taste profile that keeps you coming back for more.
Like others have already said:"a masterpiece","exquisite"-this was my first time with a 1495 after 28+years of cigar smoking!Oh well better late than never esp.in this case.Got a 10-pack of the robusto early this week,gave them a couple of days to settle in the humi and broke one out to enjoy Thanksgiving night after a great dinner and time with family,a perfect end to a special day.Worth every penny- just a perfect cigar!You want complexity?Here it is!
Fantastic cigar!Full-on great flavor! Even burn,nice white ash. This is one of the best cigars I've smoked.Just a masterpiece.
A good, full bodied cigar. Taste is steady, not over whelming. If a fuller tasting stick is your pleasure these may fit. Definitely worth a sampler try. 3 out of 5 stars fellows, sorry, and ladies.
Why so much for these?I got a bot of belicoso and was waiting to be Blown away but to my surprise it was just ok. Don't know what the big deal is about the 1495 cause I sure didn't find it. There are way better cigars on the market for far less scratch....
A dark reddish wrapper with a few noticeable veins. No soft spots and a nice cap. Hints of earth and spice over the unlit body. Upon lighting comes a dash of black pepper evident through the nose. Full of strong spices this cigar burns even and provide an easy draw with a firm ash. The spice reduces a bit and lends to a somewhat creamy core, with hints of earth and spice. It remain consistent and full flavored and has some leathery finish, that's dry and elegant. The aroma here is alluring and complex. A must try cigars for all connoisseur.
What a treat. This is a great cigar. I had been wanting to try the La Auroras for a while so I ordered the sampler (once CI dropped the price by $20 I couldn't resist). I have only gone through a few so far, but the 1495 is exquisite. It is very firm and tightly packed, so I was concerned that the draw would be tight, but it drew perfectly. Lots of creamy white smoke. This cigar has a beautifully complex wrapper with notes of butter and oak. A fantastic medium-bodied smoke.
I just recieved my CI sampler which included these 1495s.WOW!!. This is a great stick.good burn,good ash,and great draw. The flavor was consistant right to the end.The leathery wrapper was also a plus.a little pricey but worth every penny.I would recomend this cigar to anyone who likes a medium to full cigar.I will be ordering a box to add to my humidor. Thanks CI for offering the sample packs that really help us try different sticks at an afordible price. I cant wait to try the rest of the cigars in the sampler box.
The 1495 #4 is a great smoke. A very complex smoke ranging from earthy to cream to leathery. Out of the 1495 series this one to me has the most flavor and is by far the best. I give this smoke a 90..
a great cigar to show off to buddies or to just relax, La Auroras 1495 masterpiece is complex, gorgeous to look at and a real pleasure to smoke. its a pricy smoke but as soon as you feel it in your hand and snip the cap, you know where your money has gone and aint that the best feeling in the world? once again la aurora well done. 92.
I got one of these sticks (La Aurora 1495 Series) from the Big Smoke in Chicago and smoked it on 6/19/07. I had heard that this brand was a good one, but I'm pretty difficult to please. Wow, from beginning-to-end, I was impressed. Great smoke in all categories.
Another costly cigar (La Aurora 1495 Series) that offers value for money. A complex cigar that starts out about medium and gets stronger, but never harsh. The burn was absolutely even down to the nub. Excellent flavour.
All the ingrediants that go into making a fine cigar are present in the La Aurora 1495 Series. Appearance, construction, draw, burn and a flavor that in my opinion is superb! I have smoked cigars for years and enjoyed many, however this cigar is the one I have enjoyed the most and will continue to. M. Walsh
A sublime cigar! I'm normally not a fan of Corojo leaf, but this blend is superb (La Aurora 1495 Series). It's extremely complex and full of flavor, without overpowering the palate. Rich, deep, and leathery, with gentle teases of spice. Plus, the construction is top-notch with a cool and easy draw. You owe it to yourself to try this cigar.
