Review Notes: I've now had each of the Legends Series with the exception of the Drew Estates. The La Aurora entry to the series is indeed a good one. From a taste and body standpoint it is closest to the Camacho. It's fairly stout, but differs from the Camacho by having more spice but a less "in your face" punch. It left my tounge tingling and a little numb, and my head with a little buzz. My sample was straight from the wrapper to the torch, and I expect that the slight bitter taste will soften greatly or dissapear with some age. The construction was very good, on par with that of the Perdomo. There were no soft or hard spots. The pre-light scent is outstanding, reminiscent of a JDN Antano though not as bold. The wrapper has a mold toothiness and very consistent color. The La Aurora burned evenly with quite a bit of gray smoke. The Rocky Patel Legend still edges (no pun intended) this out as my favorite, but I will be smoking more of these. Being a new entry in the series the price is still high at bid. The lower score in the value category is based on a $3 price. Time will tell if the price will fall as the blue and white labels have. There are a LOT of equally good, better, or just different smokes available at that price or below.
