La Aurora Delivers

Every year, the uppity-ups of the cigar industry gather to give away prestigious awards, compare aftershaves, and slurp down caviar. And that’s all well and good for the wine and cheese club, but I’d like to introduce some more realistic awards for the everyday Joes like me. So, without further delay, here’s my first award winner: Double Happiness wins “Best Named Value Cigar on the Market.” 

What’s Double Happiness mean? I have no idea! But for just $2 per stick, you could do a helluva lot worse. Featuring a silky-smooth Connecticut Shade wrapper grown right here in the US of A, this La Aurora made stick features a creamy blend of aged long-filler tobaccos. Notes of sweet cedar, coffee, cream and slight pepper keep your palate happy and your wallet full. That’s some Double Happiness I can get behind!

Good price but not my smoothest smoke

Still crazy after all these years!
Loved 'em in the 90's and they are just as good today. Creamy, nutty smoke with plenty of body for a lighter cigar. A meal unto itself, or a great finisher to any meal. Pairs well with bourbon, rye, and scotch.

I wasnt really expecting much, and what I got wasn't what I was expecting. decent flavors, a bit sharp of an aroma. Well beyond what I thought that these would fact, im smoking one now. you could do a hell of alot worse than these...and since i smoke 5+ cigars a day....its time to order more!
Not a bad $.75 cigar. Not terribly flavorful, but well made. A nice, short smoke.

So I open up my email the Deal of the week. 20 Double Happiness sticks for a whopping 15.00 bucks. Well you have my interest peaked. I've never heard of Double Happiness before but I'm game. I know that if I don't like them I can always offer them up to my fiancé's and keep their mitts off my expensive smokes... What a surprise, these are really a nice smoke, great flavor and nice aroma though I did find the draw a little tight. All in all a well made cigar and you can't beat the price. Take my advice give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

I ordered a 2fer1 deal of these not expecting too much and I have been pleasantly pleased! They have a nice sweet cedar taste which I like, and some pepper in it. I did not get the coffee and cream taste as advertised but that's no big deal. The longer they sit in the humi the better. They're not the best sticks in the box, but they're alright. I'll probably order them again soon. Not bad. Not bad at all!

It's funny, I've had a flurry of emails lately from guys offering to send me higher priced sticks ("Gonz, you've gotta try this Opus whatchamacallit with nine gazillion years of aging and plume drooling out of the wrapper leaf - it's orgasmic.")  Pa-lease.  I even had someone offer me food stamps so I could spend more on cigars.  I should probably lay off of the Lucky Charms and buy more cigars, but I'm ok in that arena, no worries.  Seriously though, hunting season quickly approaches and it's time to clean out those double-barrels and dust off the tree stand.  In the meantime I'll hunt down some low-priced cigar surprises and I want to hear you say "wow, Gonz, you're right, damn, this is a good cigar, and for only $2 a stick!"  Well, I've got a doozy for you this time, folks, I can barely contain myself 'cause I know you'll be singing the praises of this brand.

Double Happiness.  How can you go wrong with a name like Double Happiness?  I'm not sure there are too many things out there that guarantee double happiness.  I like being happy, but this is happiness times 2.  I'm not quite sure if double happiness is less than or greater than ecstatic, but it's probably pretty close.  Kinda reminds of the last time I doubled my pleasure and doubled my fun with Doublemint gum.  (OK that was cheesy, but I couldn't resist.)  While the band shows the sun and moon, both with cigar, and both with a giant (double happy) smile on their face, being the dirty old man that I am, I think the Free Cuba label would've been more appropriate here.

The contents of this cigar are a bit of a mystery.  Starting at $1.75 per stick, requesting the components is perhaps too much to ask.  I'm going to take a stab at it though - the wrapper is a probably an Ecuadorian-Connecticut.  It's thin and gentle but smooth with nary an offensive vein.  The filler is well-packed and firm but the draw smooth and easy.  The initial match up has a front-of-palate bitterness that disappears beyond the first dozen or so draws.  The finish is smooth and tender, lending itself to a mix of Dominican and Honduran fillers.  The cigar is extremely well-made, a gem from the La Aurora factory, this brand is no slouch.  The first inch of ash held firm before dropping, and that's probably only b/c I was nervous to get it all over my keyboard.  The flavor is balanced and unintrusive, you won't be overwhelmed with flavor, this fella is smooth and true throughout.  You'll enjoy it down to the nub, and pick up another.   You'll be impressed, trust me, it's mellow puro you'll want to add to the weekly garage organizing projects.

I picked up the Torpedo (I know, living on the edge of craziness I am) and it's a pure delight.  I simply picked up a 5-pack with extreme hesitation that this would end up in butt heap, but I'm going to splurge and pony up $50 for 20.  Big time!

Spark'em up,
