America’s Top Sommelier Tabs Preferidos #2 as Favorite Cigar

Miami, Florida – June 6th, 2012 – In a recent article in the Sommelier Journal, America’s top wine expert, Alexander LaPratt tabbed the La Aurora Preferidos #2 as his favorite cigar.

SommCover.jpgThe article which appears in the May 31st, 2012 issues and spans pages 87-90 breaks down the art of Cigar Service, which many sommelier’s offer upon request.

According to Mr. LaPratt, “[The La Aurora Preferidos #2] is a fascinating cigar that I was introduced to while training for the Best Sommelier in America competition. The shape is a perfecto, which means it’s tapered on both ends. When you light it, you first taste the wrapper (from Cameroon) and the binder tobaccos; toward the thicker center, more of the filler tobaccos start burning, and the flavor changes. It reminds me of how wine changes within a glass. The blend is a touch spicy in the beginning, but smoothes out as the cigar burns, revealing complex flavors of coffee, toasted hazelnut, and cinnamon and a creamy sweetness like that of milk chocolate.

Alexander LaPratt can be found at Atera in New York City, and the article written by Kara Newman can be purchased by subscription on the website, https://www.sommelierjournal.com/
