Big on value, small on price.La Aurora cigars are made in the oldest factory in the Dominican Republic – established in 1903 with a rich 100 year tradition of cigar making. Popular among native Dominicans, they’re made from the trimmings of the regular La Aurora cigar production and are the pride of the Dominican cigar industry. Principes are short-filler blends offering a flavorful medium-bodied taste and smooth draw. And at these prices, you can enjoy these day in and day out without breaking a sweat. Great news! Principes are now available in flavors! Made the exact same way as the original Principes line, and are gently infused with delicious all-natural flavors.
NOTE: La Aurora Principes have undergone a packaging change. The cigars have not changed at all, just the names on the boxes.
Cherry is now "Red".Natural is now "Original".Chocolate is now "Brown".Rum is now "Caribbean".Vanilla is now "Blond".
Got these in vanilla. Some positives: good fairly quick burn time, always a consistent burn, half decent flavor if you slow down with it, cheap! Some negatives: bitter flavor if smoked in a hurry, not much vanilla on the actual smoke (just on the lips). Over all not a bad cigar really, especially for the price. I've enjoyed them so far but the taste is no where near a hand rolled so don't be too excited! Would buy again.
Mild, flavorful, smooth, and inexpensive! I just received my order of these in Rum flavor. They are everything they are advertised to be. I do not claim to be a cigar
"expert" but I do know what a good smooth cigar tastes like. The fact that these are made from the trimmings of the regular La Aurora cigar production comes through in the taste of these. A great smaller 30 minute smoke, that is satisfying. These, along with CI Knockoffs, are my favorite smokes, and I will be ordering more of both. The price for these is also better than the same La Aurora cigars sold by a competitor. For a great smooth smoking experience, that is very affordable, give these a try. At this price, you can also indulge your friends.
Unbelievably tasty small smokes. Go with the naturals, unless you like cloyingly sweet flavored sticks. When you crack the foil, it's so fresh and the aroma is great...best value I've ever seen. An absolute pleasure.
Was not sure what to think at first, but they kinda grew on me as a good throw down when I am not sure how long I want to smoke. And with the choc. flavor the ladies appreciated the smell. Over all these are not your fine cigars, but you get what you pay for and maybe a little more.
Principes are great. Wonderful after dinner with an Octuplet malt scotch.
These are honestly one of the only cigars that I can say tastes as good as some that are much more expensive and they have a superb aroma. I've been through 2 boxes over the last two winters. I smoke less in the cold weather and these are perfect!
The only machine rolled cigar I like so far, vanilla and chocolate. I like them for yard work and all day smokes. Save the premium sticks for occasional and nightly smokes. Chocolate is smoother to me, flavor is mild and not smack in the face.... Gonna try the natural and maybe cherry just to see.
Good everyday cigar. The draw is variable.
Very surprised. Just wanted a walk the dog/daily cig. Wonderful taste, good even burn. For $34.95 for 55, can't beat that with a stick. Get it, with a stick.
These Gars are great tasting, especially if you don't have much time for a long smoke. I always have these in my humidor.
A good cigar with a very good flavor for about half of the length of the stogie. The wrapper tends to fall apart if gnawed on much and the ash tends to fall off if not tended to. Better than most machine made smokes, just not a long burner here. For the price,a good deal,and the vanilla flavor is well blended.
Great aroma, smooth draw, a little bit too large a ring for my taste.
These are a nice quick smoke. I usually don't care for machine made cigars, but these smoke smooth. They light easily, burn evenly, and have a great draw. The only thing I would do differently is that I would opt for the non flavored instead of the chocolate. When you open the wrapper they smell like the chocolate icing on those vending machine doughnuts, but they just taste slightly sweet without the chocolate taste. Bottom line is, I would buy these again only I will skip the flavors and save my flavor craving for my Kuba Kubas.
Hard to beat for the money. Nice subtle flavor that still tastes like a cigar (I started with a box of Vanilla). Great daily smoker sized nicely between a cigarillo and a big stick. They are a little loosely packed, but it makes for a nice draw. Definitely will not hesitate to buy more. Wish they had a sample pack to try some of the other flavors.
Nice smoke for the money. Don't expect a premium, but a decent smoke. Perfect mild smoke to give to your non-cigar smoking friends!
Love the taste! Great for after dinner.
I keep trying to find a inexpensive hand rolled to replace these, but I cant. I love these cigars and are by far my favorite. Every time I give one out to a friend they ask for more!
Tasty smokes! I will be sure to purchase them again.
These cigars are great for the price. I've bought the vanilla and the natural. No complaints at all.
A year ago I purchased a box, I loved the sweet flavor. It was a great inexpensive smoke. I was excited to order another box but I was very disappointed when I received them. The cigars had no flavor at all. I do not know what changed but I will not be ordering them again.
Great Cigar for the buck i wish the flavor was a little more robust and more consistent but they are fresh and burn very well. The best flavor of the bunch is the vanilla, the rum has a funny taste it shore is not rum.
Well worth the price. Perfect for mowing the lawn or doing some gardening. I've smoked $20 sticks that aren't as good as these.
Lets see, better wrapper, burn, construction, and consistency... only $0.63 each! HELLO! I'm smoking these and all La Aurora flavors all day long! TOTALLY AWESOME!
These little cigars are one of the best I have ever smoked. Easy drawing, burn even and great flavor. I have tried all the flavors and I think each one has it own taste and complexity you can't go wrong with any of these cigars.
Forgot how much of an enjoyable smoke Principes are, would tell a new cigar smoker to order some. They are smooth and slightly sweet and are what I call a slow smoking cigar.
Ooohwee as sweet as a tootsie roll, soft and hydrated fresh out of the wrapper with a consistent taste. I can't wait to taste to the vanilla!
I ordered these a few months ago and am almost through the box. I ordered the Vanilla and I absolutely love them. Very easy to light. Burn is slow and even, even in windy conditions (I live near Chicago). The flavor of the tobacco is amazing and the vanilla flavor is sweet but not overpowering. Would definitely recommend. I will probably be ordering these again, and definitely want to try some of the other flavors. For the price, you can't beat these guys. Perfect for short smokes with a morning coffee or to take on the golf course!
A great deal for the money. They're consistent, and have a good quality tobacco. A nice stopping off point between cigarillos and the bigger sized of cigars.
Being new to the 'sport' of cigars, I have found these handy little smokes very tasty. Scent of cocoa and tastes like a tootsie roll, I'm sure the other flavored from this collection will be just as interesting. Great and smooth draw, flavor throughout, wrapper burns at an impressively even rate.
Probably one of the most flavorful cigars I can recall of late. I recommend getting a box, as I know I will enjoy mine to the last puff.
Smoke on, and here's to the simple pleasures.
Very nice, ordered a second shipment. Loved the chocolate aroma.
Pretty good taste, open the box & smells like a sweet bottle was just poured all inside of it. They don't even really need to be humidified, got my box a month ago, still haven't put them in my humidor, the silver wrap just contains this reallly good sweet taste to them. When you smoke it, it's a pretty quick burn but it's got a smooth aroma. I like to think of it as a legitimate rolled cigar that is like a REALLY high quality Swisher because of the flavoring. for an MSRP of 2.50 each and a sale of 65 cents each it's pretty good & well worth the cash. 4/5
These little boogers are great and cost friendly.
These are great little cigars with nice aroma of chocolate and a sweet smoke with a chocolate smooth easy draw.
The price is fantastic and go good with a Johnnie Blue or Remy. Rated at 93 points. Try some, great smoke!
Very nice cigar if you like Cherry.
I normally smoke cigarillos(Swisher, Black & Mild, Good Times) but I was looking for something different. After reading about the history of the company and the reviews, I decided to give these a shot. No guts no glory, right? I am so glad that I did! The taste, the burn, are fantastic! While these probably won't be an everyday smoke for me, they will most definitely be a welcome change when I'm in the mood for something different!
Nothing new to add here but to agree with lots of other reviews. these little guys have a very strong vanilla aroma. i got a good 30mins + smoke time out of it. they do look like a more expensive cigar with its individual wrappers. I think i just found my go to flavored stick. I also purchased Swishers and by flavor comparison, these seem to have much more infusion of its flavor.
These are okay but the rum flavored ones are 100 percent better.
Nice quick smoke with a hint of vanilla.
These little Principes are not bad at all. Nothing fancy, but nothing to scoff at either, especially at that price.
Very nice inexpensive cigars and they sure are the life of the party. With a nice not over powering flavor that fills with the nice vanilla arom
