La Aurora Cigars 1985 Maduro | Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"

La Aurora
1985 Maduro

WRAPPER: Brazilian Maduro
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: Robusto
ORIGIN: Dominican Republic



Cadbury Fruit & Nut Bar but replace almonds with cashews & their "Delicious dried grapes" w/ "raisins." Heavy on the upper compost undertones. Milk becomes dark chocolate fudge via heated progression or "smoking." Shot of espresso, too. Not complex per se but deeply nuanced in a kindly straight-forward manner. A typical Maduro, done nigh supremely well.

Draw is smooth & even & cool of temp w/ maybe the slightest of occasional hesitance. Burns on an even-line with one or two self-correcting hiccups along the way. Build is rustic to the eye with uneven seams but no mitt evidence of hard/soft spots. Ash doesn't make a convincing inch and is toward the side of flaky. All picking of nits aside, it's a care-free performance.
