La Aurora 120th Anniversary Churchill

Team Cigar Review: La Aurora 120th Anniversary Churchill

I enjoyed the La Aurora 120th Anniversary Churchill, and I thought it was a solid blend, but I was hoping for more complexity, depth and transitioning. Nice core flavor profile, really nice, but it needed more to pop and really celebrate 120 years. Cigar seemed young as well.

I felt this was a more modern Cameroon release from La Aurora and the Dominican Republic. Yes, it is using an Ecuadorian Cameroon wrapper and not an authentic African Cameroon, but the cigar has more strength, body and darker flavors than a lot of past Cameroon releases from the company. The almond, cream, currant and Chinese spice notes were great together.

I was very pleased with the La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Production Robusto.

There is some depth and complexity to the cigar and the combination of cinnamon and lemon was fantastic. A solid cigar that I will enjoy in the future.

The construction is flawless, and the overall cigar experience is a good one. The first and second thirds were the highlight of the cigar, with the flavor complexity falling in the last third.
