La Aurora Preferidos Diamond (Broadleaf) Robusto

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 196: 2.5-Mile Cigar
 Broadleaf, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, La Aurora, La Aurora Preferidos Diamond, Manuel Inoa I’m a new fan of this La Aurora Preferidos Diamond (Broadleaf) in Robusto enough to purchase a box of these from Sellwood Cigar maybe a week ago and maybe a week too soon to smoke.

I think my impatience got the better of my smoking experience this morning, as I needed to touch up the burn several times during my morning trek. I’m still fairly new to walking while smoking cigars so I’m questioning how does for one, smoking outside affects how the tobacco behaves… especially during a little to moderate wind and cooler or cold temperatures…

I guess I find out soon enough the next time I pull another of these La Aurora Preferidos Diamond Broadleaves to smoke!

Broadleaf, Connecticut Broadleaf, Dominican Republic, La Aurora, La Aurora Preferidos Diamond, Manuel Inoa Right away, deep rich earthy coffee and cocoa through a perfect draw with just the correct amount of resistance. The retrohale at this early start is pretty mild only reinforcing the cocoa flavors.

At the second third, leather comes to the forefront. This is an awesome cigar! All the tobacco flavors that make me go “Wow” are in this cigar. The retrohale offers no spice, just cocoa, and leather flavors so far.

The La Aurora Preferidos Diamond (Broadleaf) in Robusto is a finger burner for sure. I’ll be on the hunt for these for sure, for sure!
