Once lit, the 107 Robusto is a solid performer. The draw is good, and the cigar produces solid white ash. The cigar burns well on its own and stays even for the most part, with only the occasional touch-up needed. It stays lit throughout and does not require any re-lighting.

The flavors experienced while smoking the 107 Robusto is where the cigar really seems to shine. At first there is a rich molasses flavor that is similar to the one detected in the cold taste. Some spicy pepper also becomes relevant. A bit of leather is noticeable, as is a sweet taste that is almost fruity. The notes of molasses are the most memorable ones here. The 107 does seem to fit its medium-bodied categorization correctly.

There really is not much to complain about when it comes to the 107 Robusto. It's a nice cigar to look at thanks to its decorative band and dark wrapper. It burns well and actually allows you to enjoy it rather than maintain it. The flavors are very enjoyable, and are what drives the 107 to be worth a recommendation. Medium-bodied fans should enjoy this stick, and those who enjoy plenty of flavor out of their cigars will be pleasantly surprised. Those who enjoy stronger cigars might find it to be too smooth and not daring enough. The 107 is priced at around $6 to $7 per single, which seems fair considering the good smoking experience it provides. It is also offered in boxes of 21 if you are looking for more of a bulk purchase.

The La Aurora 107 Robusto earns a solid rating of 3 out of 4 stars.

Ashton Cabinet Selection #2

Ashton is no stranger to producing premium cigars, and their Cabinet Selection is said to follow along the same lines as other popular releases from the company. Dubbed the “White Burgundy of Cigars,” the Cabinet Selection is said to gain its smooth flavors from its extensive aging process.

The Ashton Cabinet Selection #2 measures 7 x 46. As with other lines from Ashton, the Cabinet Selection comes in a plethora of different sizes to suit various individual tastes: the 4 3/8 x 42 Tres Petit, the 5 1/4x 52 Belicoso, the 5 1/2x 50 #6, the 6 x 46 #3, the 6 x 52 Pyramid, the 6 1/4x 52 #7, the 7 x 49 #8, the 7 1/2x 52 #10, and the large 9 x 52 #1. The cigar has a filler blend of various Dominican tobaccos that have been aged for four to five years. Its binder is Dominican too, and it is capped off with an aged Connecticut Shade wrapper. In all, the process to create the Cabinet Selection has a duration of seven years, which includes both the growing and the manufacturing of the cigar. The line is considered to be very smooth and fall into the category of mild to medium-bodied.
