La Aurora Imperiales Maduro by Leon Jimenes Belicoso Cigar Review

This 6.2×52 stick features a dark chocolate oily buttery wrapper with some mottling, discoloration, small veins, stretched seams, slightly soft pack and a dusty aroma quite like a vacuum bag. First light reveals a perfect draw with good medium-full bodied smoke showing a flavor combo of an oily, smooth savory earth with a long thick finish of the same. The first third burns wonky requiring a touchup. Flavors come down to mild-medium showing a sweet oily oak with a tobacco joining in for the finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 45 minutes keeping the same profile, needing just another small touchup, dropping the ash in a solid chunk. Ending at 1:15 the final third really ramps things back up taking the body back to medium-full with a big transition to a slightly sweet and creamy earth, bright smooth nuttiness and a wintergreen airy finish. Thank you very much again to viewer Randall Gorman for providing this sample for review!
