La Aurora 1495 Brazil Connoisseur Selection

Beautiful dark Brazilian wrapper with a nice large band, sucker for nice bands really adds to the prestige of this cigar.

Very firm pack with a few large veins running down the cigar, which gives it a nice rustic look.

I found it interesting that you can get this cigar with a variation of five different wrappers. This really does show what influence the wrapper itself has on the entire experience. Well if you tried all five that is…

I was concerned because the cold draw was very light, but had a nice taste of hay.

Once lit I found there was quite a bite to the flavour, positive but hard to define. As the cigar continued there were times when it went quite sour. This came and went which I found a bit weird but kept it interesting. Ash fell on its own after 35 minutes.

When I reached half way I realised that the band, that I liked so much, was now in the way since it was so large. Really hard to remove the band without stripping the wrapper but got it done. Eventually…

Overall enjoyable
