LA AURORA BARREL AGED
WRAPPER: Dominican Republic BINDER: Dominican Republic FILLER: Dominican Republic
The La Aurora Barrel Aged series was created by placing aged tobacco in old oak barrels that, at one time, held Dominican rum. Sounds good, right? Well, after they sit for sometime, the tobaccos is rolled into some of the richest tasting smokes you’ve ever had. You’ll get a woodsy flavor that has hints of mocha and sweet spice.
Featured Customer Reviews for LA AURORA BARREL AGED
Potentially a decent smoke, but has burn issues
I have tried about 4 of these and have not been able to keep any of them lit beyond the first 1-2 inches. Regardless of how quickly or slowly I smoke them. Re-lighting these cigars 5-6 times per smoke really puts a damper on the enjoyment. The flavor is a bit like charcoal, no discernable sweet, spicey, or earthy taste at all. Just kind of bitter tasting. I will let the rest of the box age until next year in the humidor to see if that helps with the burn/draw issues. Until then I will enjoy my usual menu. My other brands taste and burn even better by comparison to these dogs.
