La Aurora Preferidos Emerald
WRAPPER: Sumatra
BINDER: Valle del Cibao Dominican
FILLER: Valle del Cibao Dominican, Brasil, Nicaragua, Peru

FORMAT: 554 Double Perfecto
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic
STRENGTH: Medium-Full

NOTES: Darkly sweet and oily with a delayed & deep warm pepper-spice. Rich roasted cedar and nuts around a dense tobacco core. Latte nethers (Better latte than nether). (It's wordplay, Gentlepersons.) Lively & luxurious. Dense but not heavy. Pretty fucking pricey & well-worth it. Draw is excellent, burn-line needs slight flicked Bic guidance.

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


"Es un cigarro terroso, picante y complejo. Una fumada de cuerpo medio con una capa de Ecuador cultivada del sol muy sedosa." Reads the copy @ www.LaAurora.com.do -- which ran thru Google Translate is: "It is an earthy, spicy and complex cigar. A medium body smoked with a layer of Ecuador cultivated from the very silky sun." This is maybe poetry at its finest and I believe no other copy re: cigars should be written ever again. "... from the very silky sun," indeed. *swoon*

I think that prolly ill-translated line impregnated me, I do.
