La Aurora Preferidos Sapphire in Robusto - Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"


La Aurora Preferidos Sapphire
WRAPPER: Connecticut Shade
BINDER: Dominican
FILLER: Dominican, Cameroon(ian?), Brazilian

FORMAT: Robusto
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic
STRENGTH: Mild-Medium

NOTES: Sunlit earth and hay sweetened w/ toasted glimpses of butterscotch, vanilla bean, white chocolate, maybe car-a-mel. Whispery additions to that forward core are an orange blossom honey, toasted cream, pine nuts, and graham flour.

Dessert stick, though not cloyingly-so. Delivered on a line via a damply rigid draw though not nearly egregiously-so. Ash stacks tight af off razor-line slowly paced burn. Calming af. Pleasant if not gob-smacking af.

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