La Aurora Preferidos Diamond Tubo

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Brazil, Dominican Republic and Cameroon
Vitola: Perfecto
Size: 5 x 54

What an epic smoke. This is what a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro should be. This stick had the perfect draw and lots of aromatic smoke. The flavor profile began with lots of smooth espresso. There were hints of chocolate and a fig sweetness that would appear and disappear. The second half brought the addition of some leather. The cigar was medium/full in flavor but very smooth and a strength that never passed medium. At a price of $17 and change, it would probably only become a treat for me but certainly "Box Worthy" Maybe two boxes since there are only eight to a box.
