La Aurora Preferidos Diamond in Robusto - Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Why not Kaplowitz?"


La Aurora Preferidos Diamond
WRAPPER: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
BINDER: Dominican
FILLER: Dominican

FORMAT: Robusto
ORIGIN: La Aurora Factory, DR
STRENGTH: Medium-Full
BLENDER: Guillermo Leon

NOTES: Earth, dark & roasted to the brink of charred. Mocha braced by scorched oak barrel. Finely ground black pepper in table syrup. That's it, top-to-bottom. Also, straight-thru. Burns on an even 'nuff line; plenty of smoke out-put. Draws silky smooth, building to a ditto-so texture w/ just the slightest of buzz on tongue. Stays stubbornly well-formed to the tepid nubberino.

FINAL GRADE: B+
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59


"Announced in April and introduced at IPCPR 2012 in August, the La Aurora Preferidos Diamond is the latest expansion in the Preferidos line. Charlie posted the details of this back in July:

"La Aurora has confirmed its newest Preferido will be one with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The cigar, which will be known as Preferidos Diamond, will come in a black tubo and the signature 5 x 54 Preferidos No. 2 vitola. Nestor Miranda, head of Miami Cigar & Co., the U.S. distributor for La Aurora, first announced the new extension in early April." - www.Halfwheel.com (2012)
