The La Aurora Corojo has a light brown colored wrapper with a reddish tint to it. The cigar is a tad lumpy feeling but the overall construction seems good with its even seam lines and a neat torpedo head.
The La Aurora Corojo Belicoso draws like a dream proving tons of thick smoke. The burn is pretty even for the most part and the ash is fairly solid and compact.
The La Aurora Corojo starts with some spice upfront that quickly mellows down to show notes of light wood, creamy vanilla, and a raisin-like sweetness. As the second third approaches some cinnamon comes into play and I can’t help thinking of Sara Lee Raisin Cinnamon bread. As the second third fades into the final third, the spice picks back up but remains balanced with the rest of the cigar. The body of the La Aurora Corojo is mild to medium. Strength is average.
The La Aurora Corojo is a damn good cigar and in my mind and could be compared to a Cuban cigar. The cigar is very clean and crisp on the palate like a good Cuban and has the flavor profile of a Cuban cigar I have smoked, but I can’t put my finger on the name of it. The La Aurora Corojo is balanced perfectly and has a good amount of complexity for the money. If you enjoy a cigar in the medium category, go getcha some!
