clecle corojo 2012 robusto
la aurorala aurora preferidos diamond

Today we are coming at you with two new reviews that cover what the La Aurora Preferidos and the CLE Corojo 2012 have to offer in terms of their presentation, construction, burn, and flavor.  So gear up as we light them up and look them over.

La Aurora Preferidos

The La Aurora Preferidos line is all about premium quality.  The Diamond, which is what I’ll be reviewing today, is an extension of the line that was first introduced last year during the IPCPR show.  It’s just one of six versions in the line that differ according to their wrapper and packaging.  While the Diamond utilizes a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, here are the others: Platinum (Cameroon), Emerald (Ecuadorian Sumatra), Sapphire (Connecticut), Ruby (Brazilian Sun Grown), and Gold (Corojo).

The La Aurora Preferidos Diamond is a Perfecto that measures 5 x 54.  Besides its aforementioned wrapper, the Preferidos Diamond is mainly characterized by the fact that it comes in an attractive black tube.  The cigar’s filler is made of Dominican tobacco, while the binder is of the Dominican Maduro variety.  As mentioned, the wrapper is Connecticut Broadleaf.  As far as strength it concerned, Preferidos Diamond is listed as full-bodied.

At first glance, I enjoy giving the Preferidos Diamond’ tube a quick inspection.  The mostly black color scheme is really sharp and makes for some nice eye candy.  Opening up the tube I find the Preferidos Diamond itself, and it appears to be a very attractive cigar.  The band stands out with its coloring.  It features the La Aurora logo of a male lion in the center.  The dark brown, nearly black wrapper is quite inviting thanks to its oils and it’s also toothy.  Only a few thin veins are present.  Squeezing the cigar offers a little give, but no major soft spots.  I notice no major imperfections as well.  Overall, I must say that the construction is impressive.  I pick up a pre-light scent of mild tobacco, while the taste is on the chocolaty side.

After lighting, the La Aurora Preferidos Diamond burns with ease.  The easy draw is relaxing, and so is the sweet aroma won’t make you feel bashful if you’re puffing on this near other people.  The ash is solid and gray in color.  The burn line remains even throughout the smoking experience without the need for any touch-ups.  Re-lights are also unnecessary.
