A lion's share of hearty flavors for a mouse-sized price.
La Aurora is a company deserving of copious amounts of praise. They've been bringing us cigars that set the standard for Dominican tobacco since they became the first established Dominican cigar factory, and the numbers don't lie. They're still going strong well into the 21st century, and the newest addition to the La Aurora portfolio is nothing short of a masterpiece.
This version of the La Aurora Bristol Especial replaces the Cameroon from the original with a dark, toothy Maduro wrapper overtop the same blend of Piloto Cubano, Olor Dominicano, and Nicaraguan long fillers. The result is a rich, deep flavor profile including notes of earth, coffee, and cocoa, which steadily develops more complexity as the straight burn gets closer to the band. The impeccable construction is no less than we expect from La Aurora, and the prices are surprisingly low for quality of this caliber. Keep your humidor stocked with La Aurora Bristol Especial Maduro cigars, and you'll never be lacking in heart Dominican flavor.
