This time-tested, super-premium cigar offers the finest wrappers and vintage long-fillers aged patiently aged in rum barrels.
Great news! La Aurora Preferidos has been named one of Cigar Aficionado's Top 50 Cigars. Along with a '91' rating, the magazine noted, "An attractive perfecto with a supple and smooth wrapper. It's earthy and smooth, with a cedary and toasty character and a hint of coffee beans. The finish is slightly spicy. A tasty and balanced cigar."
Also, with an amazing, '93' rating, the Preferidos Limited Edition 2006 Cameroon received the highest mark in a recent Cigar Aficionado. Here is what they had to say: "This oily, toothy cigar gives off a rich aroma. It loads the palate with sweet wood & cream. The finish resonates with cocoa & spice. Balanced & Elegant."
