An aficionado would say the wrapper was a bit too veiny, but while this is not a $12 cigar, it certainly smokes like one… for about a quarter of the cost!
The burn was relatively even, leaving solid ash up to a few inches in. I did have to puff on it every 20 seconds or so to keep it from going out. Perhaps another week in the humidor would have been a good idea.
That said, this is a cigar you can smoke anytime or give out to your buddies and not feel guilty about it.
Bottom line, if you’re looking for a smooth weekday-to-weekend ‘gar, this is the one. You’re getting brand name (La Aurora) quality at bargain basement prices.
