In terms of flavor, you acquire a nice variety here. In the beginning, there are some spicy notes. The spice gives way to some sweetness and coffee. A really rich chocolate flavor makes an appearance as well. The final flavor that is detected is of wood. The spice towards the beginning of the cigar gave it a decent little kick, but the rest of the experience was mostly medium-bodied

The La Aurora 1495 BME Series Dominicana is a quality cigar in all aspects.  I would definitely recommend picking up a single, whether you are a beginner or a more refined smoker.  A single costs around $7, and the cigar also comes in packs of five or boxes of 20.  That's a decent price considering the quality you are getting.  It would be interesting to see how the other offerings in the BME Series line differ from this Dominicana.  Perhaps I will see if I can track them down for further reviews.

The La Aurora 1495 BME Series Dominicana receives a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

La Estrella Cubana Oscuro Churchill

Okay, here’s your little Spanish lesson for the day: La Estrella Cubana translates into “the Cuban star.”  Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about this cigar.  The brand’s Oscuro line was developed for fans of Maduro cigars looking for a smooth smoking experience.  It’s supposed to offer plenty of flavor via its pleasant profile, and with such a description, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to snag up one of its Churchill selections for this review.  Oh, did I mention it’s highly affordable?  That certainly helped in my decision making process as well.

The La Estrella Sumatra measures 7 x 48 in its Churchill format.  Other offerings in the line include the 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 50 Toro, and the 6 x 52 Belicoso.  The cigar has a filler of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, while the wrapper is of the Costa Rican Maduro variety.  In terms of strength, the La Estrella Cubana Oscuro is said to be medium-bodied.
