Top 25 Cigars: La Aurora Preferidos
Thanks to Seth’s Humidor for the inclusion of the La Aurora Diamond Preferidos in their Top 25 Cigars of 2013. Seth’s Humidor writes,
La Aurora is a company that has been making cigars in the Dominican Republic since 1903. When you make cigars for that long you have a very good idea of what a good cigar is and what a bad one is. Along with that, they have one of the best vitolas coming out of their factory as well. That vitola is the preferido, and it is one of the most magical vitolas on the market. It offers the smoker an experience to really taste the wrapper and filler tobacco and the impact each part plays on the cigar. La Aurora has several offerings in the Preferidos vitolas, but this last year they released the newest edition which was the Diamond. The cigar features an all Dominican filler and binder with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, and is amazing in apperance. The cigar is truly an experience and one of the best Connecticut Broadleaf cigars I have had. The cigar had a richness and complexity that so many cigar strive for, and was a wonderfully constructed cigar as well. Because of that, the Preferidos Diamond is the #19 cigar of the year.
