Gobble gobble!  We’re just one day away from Thanksgiving, and you’re probably burning up with anticipation for your feast.  But before you have it, here are a couple more cigars you might want to consider as a post-meal treat in the form of the Tarazona Classic and the La Aurora 107 Maduro.

Tarazona Classic Robusto

Tarazona is a small brand headed by Eddie Tarazona.  All of their cigars are made in Esteli, Nicaragua at the Cubanacan cigar factory.  An interesting side note about the brand is the fact that they donate $1 for every box sold to help rescue pit bulls.  This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise considering that the brand’s owner is a pit bull owner and lover himself.  As for the Classic line which I’ll be sampling today, it’s labeled as a “cigar for every occasion.”  Seeing how I seem to smoke cigars doing a wide variety of tasks, it sounds like this one might be right up my alley.  Now let’s light one up to find out.

The Tarazona Classic Robusto measures 5 x 50. Other offerings in the line include the Torpedo and Churchill formats. The cigar features a filler and binder made up of Nicaraguan tobacco. The wrapper, meanwhile, is of the Sumatra variety.  In terms of strength, the Classic is said to be medium-bodied, which makes sense since it’s marketed as a cigar for various occasions.

The Tarazona Classic is attractive mostly due to the large band near its head. The band has a white, black, and red color. The band features the Tarazona name and a large red T across the middle. The band's large size is a nice call for attention. The cigar itself has a medium-brown color with a slight reddish tint and plenty of oil on its surface. It does have quite a few veins that are visible. It feels smooth to the touch and appears to be packed well. Before lighting, the Classic’s scent is spicy. Its cold taste, meanwhile, is grassy.

There is little to criticize in terms of the Tarazona Classic’s burn. It produces very long ash that is dark gray in color. The draw is as good as one could hope for as well. The burn stays even on its own minus one touch-up from my lighter, and the cigar does not need any help in staying lit.

This cigar has become my favorite maduro at its price point. Just a nice, flavor filled, solid smoke from a company that knows how.
