La Aurora Broadleaf Corona - Mid Atlantic Exclusive

La Aurora Broadleaf Corna Cigar - Mid Atlanic Exclusive
Welcome to review number three of a new release from La Aurora Cigars, the Mid-Atlantic exclusive Corona. These new Coronas mimic the Preferido line every detail, except size. 

With every cigar I smoke, this new line of La Aurora Coronas get better and better. This Broadleaf cigar is covered by a thick, oily, Oscuro colored wrapper, with tight seams and a few smaller veins. Checking the cold aromas of this firmly packed stick, there are notes of toasted cocoa from both the foot and the free cold draw.

Once the triple cap is clipped and the cigar is burning the first medium bodied flavors are a mix of mild black pepper with cocoa. For a Corona, this stick is a real smoke producer. As the razor sharp burn moves up the cigar there are other nuances of brown sugar, toast and caramel. In the second half the burn gets a bit wavy, but doesn't need a correction plus there are flavors of raisin, charcoal, more caramel and chocolate. The cigar finishes it's 50 minute burn with full bodied flavors of sweet charred brown sugar and chocolate. It was a really tasty finish!

Overall this was a great cigar. It had great construction, flavors and burn time. If you are lucky enough to find these at your local B&M, don't pass them up.

Rated 94

There are six different wrappers in this release making this the third in a six part series. The other three reviews will be coming down the line soon. La Aurora Cigars are distributed by Miami Cigar and Company.
