Once lit, the DL 700 offers some solid gray ash and a nice draw. The burn stays even for the most part, but there are certain occasions that call for some touch-ups with the lighter. Still, there are no issues that need so much attention so that you will be distracted from experiencing the overall power that this cigar provides.

Spicy pepper is the first flavor that is noticeable, and it really awakens the senses. The spice then turns to a lighter, sweeter flavor. A rich taste of nuts then jumps in, as does some coffee. Last, but not least, are some cedar notes.

The Double Ligero DL 700 is a good choice if you enjoy strong cigars. This is one selection that you should definitely try only after you had a meal. Full-bodied fans should find the DL 700 to satisfy with its strength, and beginners will definitely want to look for something that is not as strong. The DL 700 can be found in boxes of 20 for around $150.

The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero DL 700 earns a rating of three out of four stars.

La Aurora Corojo Robusto


La Aurora's Corojo line is a recent release from the brand. It was created as a follow-up to the original La Aurora line. To create some distinction from the original, the Corojo was given a Corojo wrapper to give it extra strength, although the rest of the cigar's components follow the original closely. In addition to its extra strength, the Corojo line also has a bit of a twist in terms of its distribution, as La Aurora created the cigar with the intent of making it available mostly in brick and mortar shops.

The Robusto size of the La Aurora Corojo line measures 5 x 50. La Aurora also offers the Corojo in the following sizes: the 5 ¼ x 43 Aurora #4, the 6 ¼ x 52 Belicoso, the 6 ½ x 50 Gran Corona, and the 7 ½ x 50 Double Corona. The cigar's filler is a blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It has an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and is completed by an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper. La Aurora chose to use a Corojo wrapper to give the cigar added strength. Speaking of strength, the La Aurora Corojo is said to fall in between the categories of medium and full-bodied.
