laaurora107pic1 Welcome back and get ready for some more reviews. Today we will take a look at the special anniversary cigar from La Aurora with the 107 Robusto and the aged Ashton Cabinet Selection #2.

When one thinks of anniversaries, they think of nice, rounded off numbers. Anniversary events or limited editions usually come out to celebrate 10, 25, 50, or 100 years of “something.” With the La Aurora brand, however, they have chosen to celebrate their 107th anniversary of business that began in 1903 by releasing a cigar line appropriately named the “107.” When you can lay claim to having the oldest cigar factory in the Dominican Republic as La Aurora has, you can do what you want. The 107 is produced in the Dominican Republic. Is it worthy of its status as an anniversary cigar? Let's see for ourselves.

The La Aurora 107 Robusto measures 4 1/2x 50. The cigar also comes in two other sizes: the 5 1/2x 54 Toro and the 6 1/4x 52 Belicoso. The 107 Robusto has a filler blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Its binder is Dominican as well, and it is topped off with an Ecuadorian Sun Grown Wrapper. The 107 is considered to be on the smoother side of the spectrum and is categorized as medium-bodied.

Perhaps the most noticeable aspect of the 107 Robusto's appearance is its large decorative band near the head of the cigar. The band is quite striking, and is highlighted by a large male lion's head in the middle. Some nice gold, yellow, and white colors surround the logo, and it shows the La Aurora brand name as well as the 107 Moniker in large red font. The cigar itself is dark and very oily. There are plenty of veins visible throughout its body too. Touching the cigar reveals that it is firm and well-packed. It has a cold taste that resembles molasses and an earthy scent prior to lighting.
