La Aurora Principes

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".

Not a bad smoke for the price.
These are good for an every day cigar for the common guy. Pre cut, individually wrapped so they wont take up valuable space in your humidor.

Great buy
I buy Principles often. Great value and taste. Just wish the ends were wrapped. Once I light a cigar it never leaves my mouth. I'm constantly spitting out little pieces of tobacco, but I still really like these cigars.

She's Cute....Or Whateva
Oh Em Gee! These cigars are fuego! The smell alone smells so intoxicating even before I opened the wrapper. One puff and I was hooked. It tastes like I am smoking an old fashioned cherry Jolly Rancher candy. My tongue tastes like cherry and the cherry smoke permeates the room which is not offensive or overpowerful at all. I highly recommend. As a woman and a cigar enthusiast, I think this is one good flavorful cigar. Now----if I can just pair it with a strong drink, I'm good!

Happy customer
As I have stated previously I had to quit smoking 18 yrs ago but still wanted the taste of a good cigar. Due to volume of use this cigar has done the job.

Pleasure Principie
I greatly enjoyed these smokes. It was quite mild Rum flavor. I gave this review 4/5 stars because I wished it had a bit more Rum flavor. However, it is still a great cigar and I like the individual wrapping.

Bought these since Tatiana vannilas are always backordered. Great 25 min cigar and can't go wrong with the price. Even burn, stays moist in the sealed package and end is already cut.

A good smoke at a good price
I was looking for a treat; a quick smoke for those rare breaks at work or when it's too damn cold outside to linger too long. I found it with La Aurora Princiipes Caribbean. The individual wrapper assures each cigar's freshness. The hint of rum lends to it's rather surprising fullness. This is no wimpy cigar. It's civilized and friendly yet you know it's a real cigar. I've even got some of the guys at work smokin' 'em and buyin' 'em.

I like the chocolate ones better but these are OK. Alwatys burn evenly. Tobacco shreds end up in your mouth if you draw to hard. Not real pleasant when that happens.

Not Really a Cigar Smoker But....
I DO enjoy these! Super mellow flavor, can smoke them down to a tiny butt and they're good to the very last draw. I think, if I couldn't get these, I'd stop smoking cigars altogether. My favorites are the rum flavor (currently "Caribbean") and the "natural" (original?). I've tried a couple of the other flavors and wasn't impressed.... your tastes may differ. ;) A nice "short smoke". Occasionally I will smoke two back to back. Mild flavored, fun smoke for the "non-smoker". Everyone I've shared these with have gone online and bought a box for themselves! :)

It is what it is
These cigars are a great value. They taste great and burn well. But they are not to be confused with a premium cigar. With that in mind, I believe you will enjoy this cigar!

A real bargain cigar.
These are made from the trimmings of the long leaf fillers in their premium cigar production. So while it is a short leaf filler (trimmings) it comes from premium tobacco but at a price that can't be beat. A good 35 to 40 minute smoke. They burn a little faster than a tight long leaf filler, but are very enjoyable. Everyone I've given one to liked it, and loved it after I told them how little I paid for them.

Bought these to try as Bandidos seem to be on permanent backorder. Pleasantly surprised. Smooth and mild as long as you don't draw on them too hard. Decent lasting smoke. Not much vanilla flavor which I'm fine with. Well packaged. Have since bought the Rum variety, also very nice for the price point.

Smooth fresh chocolate flavored smoke
Amazing daily smoke w/really nice flavor & freshness.. I turn these on to all of my 1st time smokers who just want to enjoy my company on the patio when they pay a visit & they always enjoy them.. No punch at all just a very smooth smoke with a nice mellow chocolate flavor..

Save up for better quality
They smell so sweet, just opening the box makes you think you're going to get diabetes. However, I couldn't taste any sweetness, nor smell any in the smoke. They're not bad, just not sweet. In this case, I got what I paid for. The Brighton's best cherry is a good taste and smoke, but costs a lot more.

LePrincipes Palma Chocolate
I have purchased a dozen or so boxes of the Corona, which is a smaller version of this cigar. The Corona is consistent with flavor and packing of the filler. I have purchased 4 boxes of the Palma and they are very inconsistent with both flavor and packing. Some cigars are packed super tight and difficult to draw, others are packed loosely and burn very quickly. For a consistent flavor and draw I would recommend the Corona size of this product instead of the Palma.

I like having a cigar or two while golfing, and I don't want anything overbearing or too interesting. These are perfect. Mild, good aroma, so they don't offend non-smokers, and packaged so they stay fresh.

Wish they were rolled tighter
Good tasting filler, sometimes a hint of brown paper from the binder? Too loose, some will burn almost a half hour most barely 15 minutes. I drive 11 miles home from work, 55mph speed limit, 2 stop signs and generally cigar almost done for by the time i pull into drive. Good for the price but not a great bargain. I will probably buy some more when the box is gone. Just have to remember to grab a handful instead of a couple of churchills.

La Aurora Principes Palma Original review
Price was right, BUT disappointed! The wrapper is thin and the fill is chopped up. I ordered this because of the back order for Punch London Club maduro. And there is no comparison. After a few minutes, this Palma falls apart in your mouth. Reminds me of some American made cigars of the past. Guess I better stay with the 'name' brands.

Excellent Cigars!
I purchased these for the first time last year. They were a hit with me and whoever I passed them out to. Not too expensive so you can pass them out to your friends without going broke and everyone can enjoy their great flavor and long burn from such a smaller cigar. Liked them so much I bought a bunch more this year. I'll be placing another order for more of them soon! You can't go wrong with these delectable gems!!

OK
A good daily smoke, but not much flavor. They have a pre-cut medium to excessively light draw. Seems like they have more dust than leaf scrap in the filler. What I would expect for 60 cents. I wish they had invested in better filler instead of an elaborate zip-off foil cover on each stick.

The flavor is between straight tobacco and, on the end, the Jolly Rancher-esque taste I've come to expect from cheaper cigars. Not to say these are just cheap, I'm giving them four (4) stars! Every smoke has been around a thirty (30) minute sitting so it serves well for an everyday/yardgar if that's what you're looking for. For me these have been my buffer between Premiums, or a pleasant last resort when I've accidentally smoked everything else I have and refuse to stoop to gas station quality cigars. All-in-all I'd recommend it for people looking to get out from the gas station brands or you're just strapped for cash.

Good cigar, great value!
Bought the La Aurora Principes for my father as the are the size he prefers. Good little mild smokes for an excellent price.
5 out of 5
Excellent for the price
I bought these to have for a quick smoke during the week when I get home from work. I was surprised by the quality. These are not normally something I would smoke as they are machine made. They put out a lot of smoke and have a good flavor. They taste almost as good as a long filler cigar. For what they are, they are an excellent cigar if you want a quick 30 minute smoke.

Lovely flavor, but lacking somewhat in body. They're loosely rolled so burn quickly. The first half is great but they seem to get a little bitter in the second half.

Eight Boxes!
I'm at least on my 8th box, at least that's how many I can see from my desk. I think I must have first ordered because I was intrigued by the price. Don't let that fool you. You know you're smoking a CIGAR with Principes. These sucker will hold a 1" ash. I recently tried a couple La Aurora Cameroons from a local cigar store, and I will be purchasing more La Aurora products from CI.

Principes Palma - Ok cigar for the price, but inconsistent draw
This is the 2nd box (55 in box) of Principes Palma's (Third box of Principes in general) that I had in the past few months. This last box from CI so far seems to be better than the first one that I ordered from another popular company. But they still are inconsistent on the draw. In this box, about half draw just fine all the way through, while the other half seem to draw ok at start, but about half way through they start clogging up, and flavor gets a bite to it toward the end. But that is better than the first box I had from the other company, as 90% had the draw issue. Plus about half way through, most of them gained a very bad flavor to the point I often would toss it. Don't know if this just has to do with a bad run of tobacco, or if they sat on the shelf to long... or...?? Don't know why they label these as "Vanilla" though, as they have Absolutely No Vanilla flavor at all, which was also disappointed as I have been searching for a cigar with a good vanilla smoke. In any case, over all are they a decent cigar for the price? Sure, at least I can smoke them everyday. If the price was any higher though, I'd probably find something else.

Satisfied
Very nice daily smoke! Difficult to get the Cherry due to backorders. Tried the Vanilla and they are surprisingly pleasant. Overall,....very satisfying smokes.
5 out of 5
Worth every penny...and they are just pennies per
These are just flat-out good cigars for the money. Yes they're made from cuttings... Yes they are machine rolled... So what. They smoke smooth they have good flavor and I like the hint of vanilla. Nice that they come individually wrapped and are convenient to tuck in your golf bag or in your travel bag when traveling. No needs for required. I passed about the several friends and not one of them was ever said wow this sucks. They all enjoy the smooth smoke and the flavor and they won't break the bank

A pleasurable flavor and plenty of smoke: Value is Uncomparible
Best value on a cigar worth smoking there is. It burns straight every time and provides plenty of smoke; comparable in quality to cigars costing much more. I keep some in the trunk of the HD to pass out to those around admiring the aroma of my cigar while out and about. The only Minor thing are small flecks of tobacco on the tongue; I tamp mine and it pretty well takes care of that.
5 out of 5
One of the best smokes out there!
If your a drew Estates fan, and have not had the pleasure of Trying the La Aurora Cherrys, Your in for a treat! Great construction, Always a Great draw, and with the rich Maduro wrapper, it has Flavor for days! And the best part…the Price!
5 out of 5
Surpases Expectations
"These sticks are the best for the money." That is the first thing that came to mind when I smoked my first one. After several sticks, almost through with my first box of 55, and having ordered another box already, I have to say they far surpass the "for the money" descriptor. It is perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning, as a mid-day stick-snack after lunch, and as an excellent aid in calming down after a full day at work (I am an ER nurse). It is not what one would call a full-bodied smoke. It does not bite back, its odor is not offensive to people who do not like cigar smoke, and there is nothing overwhelming about it. It is a gentle, perfectly rolled friend who tries to make itself a part of what is going on at the time in a helpful way, not make everything about itself. If you want a strong, full-bodied, loud stick, the La Aurora Principes is not for you. If you want a smooth, consistent, more gentle and friendly smoke, this is the one.

La Aurora Principes Palma
My morning/coffee cigar and arguably my favorite, certainly of those under five dollars! Machine made, consistent, no unraveling, easy lighting and draw. The flavor is from cuttings from Auroras various assembly lines (my favorite brand) so the flavor suites me.

An excellent, very mild...
I was getting the Red Lion cheroots as a short multiday smoke, but found the inconsistent in build and quality from one box to the next. Looking for something similar, I decided to try the La Aurora Principes. They are well made and consistent. Very mild and an excellent replacement.

Great smoke for pennys on the rum keg
Getting tired of high priced cigars that are too tightly wrapped ??tastes totally different when lit vs later on?. If you don't need labels and 90+ ratings from cigar snobs and are willing to pocket a few bucks in the process then these are for you. I'm on my second box and about to order my third. I chose the Palma Rum and are not disappointed at all. Are they perfect?... na but I like em ... oh by the way its coconut rum not your Capt kind but I don't care. try a box give em a chance and you'll be happy with the credit card statement.

La Aurora Principes Natural a good buy
Mostly inexpensive Coronas are what I smoke lately. When my then favorite was back ordered I found the Principes. It is probably machine made because each cigar is so perfect, and never a construction problem. They have a mild pleasant constitution. Each cigar is wrapped in its own easy to open plastic tube. These have become my favorite cigar.

This is a very pleasant, inexpensive smoke for every day. Good quality about 90% of the time. This brand sometimes has a foul taste 2/3rd's the way through smoking it. Only about 2-4 sticks out of 55. I prefer the Vanilla flavor over the others. Cherry is very strong, natural is just not good. Great daily smoke, highly recommend this brand.

The price was right and thought I'd try them. They are machine made with cigarrette-type filler. They remind me of a big cigarillo. That said, they actually have a decent flavor. Good with a morning cup of joe or if you want quick 15-20 minute smoke if that's what you are looking for.

not bad really, just kind of weird. has a pronounced flowery, perfumey taste. also a metallic bite to them, sort of like biting into tin foil. I'm going to try one more box just to verify this was not a fluke. so many good reviews makes me wonder.... price, foil wrapping, size... s'all good.

Priced Right, "Walk-About", Cigar.
Good machine made Cigar at an affordable price. Because they're machine made they're consistent & burn evenly. Because they're using the left over 'sweepings' from all their other brands [mediocre to expensive] they're better than average tasting. Good 'walk about' everyday, medium/small, Cigar.
