La Aurora Sublimes are pleasant, mild cigars from the Dominican Republic. They have a consistent, rich flavour paired with quality construction.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★☆☆
The Sublimes have a medium brown wrapper, nice oils and a sweet, light tobacco smell. There are many thin veins giving them a bit of a rougher appearance. It is very obvious where the band was cut after printing which takes away from the overall look. They come in a nice tubo.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★☆
The cigar has nice seams and the filler at the foot appears to be distributed evenly. The burn is dead even although it does burn a bit quick. It has an easy draw and good white ash.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★☆☆
The cold draw is grassy with a light tobacco taste. When the cigar was lit, it started out with mild, sweet tobacco and cedar flavours with a camp fire aroma. The flavour develops quickly becoming slightly richer however remaining mild. Cocoa flavour enters with a bit of hay. After this there is no more development and the flavour remains consistent. Although mild, it remains cool and pleasant until the end.

Value : Rating: ★★☆☆☆
If you are looking for a mild cigar, there are other smokes on the market that have the same quality for a lower price. I find that the tubo often increases the price. I’ve had a hard time finding them in Canada so the price is my best estimate.

Overall Rating : Rating: ★★★☆☆
The La Aurora Sublimes are nice mild cigars with solid construction. Although they are fairly one-dimensional they offer a nice rich smoke that is not intimidating. They are a good early afternoon cigar that go great with a cappuccino and, since they come in a tubo, would make an excellent gift for someone new to cigar smoking.

  1. Overall this cigar doesn’t look very impressing. The price point and the low rating doesn’t make me want to run and pick this guy up. I’m honestly not a big fan of the tubos. Like you said it seems to just increase and they don’t seem to improve the cigar substantially either.

  2. For the price sounds like the flavor is a bit lacking. I do enjoy some of the La Aurora sticks, have yet to try this one.
