Review: La Aurora 1903 Edition, Preferidio #3

Review: La Aurora 1903 Edition, Preferidio #3
(From Holt's):
This full-bodied line of cigars is a series of perfectos which reprises the shapes made by Don Eduardo Leon Jimenes at the opening of the La Aurora factory in 1903. The wrapper and some filler leaves are from Cameroon with Dominican binder and Dominican filler.
Wrapper: Cameroon
Filler: Olor Dominicano, Dom. Piloto Cubano, Cam.
Binder: Dominican Piloto Cubano
Size: 50 x 4 inches
Style: Perfecto

This is a gifted cigar. Great Colorado brown color, with some ‘tooth’ to it. (Not sure how old.) Good firm construction. Clipped and lit easily. Smoked outside with some coffee.

Initially expected this to be a smooth, Dominican smoke, and it started out that way. Light toasty flavors, with lots of smoke. Ash is on the lighter side – interestingly, you can easily make out which is the binder and which is the binder.

Halfway into it the flavors kicked up a notch showing the same light toastiness. Overall, it was an excellent smoke. Not too complex, but tasty and pleasant.
