La Aurora Preferido Platinum No.2 Tubed Cigar Review
This 5×54 perfecto stick features a firmly packed slightly toothy dark brown wrapper with small veins, tight seams and a rich chocolate and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with good smoke output giving rich medium-full flavors of a sweet grass, earth, barnyard, hay and an oil slick through the long finish. The first third opens up tp a very peppery sweet earth, keeping the great construction and performance, burning pretty quickly at just 15 minutes. The 2nd third develops much the same adding a nice cream to the mix countering the pepper. The ash holds on solid right to the middle where it got my lap again. Ending at 45 minutes where the nub got too hot for my taste, the last bit shifted, replacing the cream with a soft cinnamon as it heated up.
