REVIEW | Aurora 1495 Churchill
Dominican Republic
Dominican Republic

Tasting Note: A roughly made Churchill with a sloppy cap. It’s a toasty, creamy cigar that occasionally smacks of spicy hot pepper. Tastes much better than it looks

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Jun 01, 2014
Score: 89
Covered in a notably veiny wrapper, this cigar has a bit of a firm draw that shows plenty of sweet woody notes, cocoa bean and a hint of orange peel.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 2010
Score: 90
Dark and oily with a strikingly even burn. Flavors start out with a mineral sweetness, then progress to a balance of spice, coffee bean and wood.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado, Dec 01, 2007
Score: 89
A toothy and veiny smoke that performs well. It’s dry at first, then becomes sweet and woody. Coffee bean flavors are also present on this balanced medium-bodied cigar.

Score: 88
A dark, oily cigar with a superb draw. It has notes of cocoa bean and spicy anise, with a touch of herbal qualities. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider, Nov 15, 2005
Score: 87
This cigar has excellent color and shine. Strong tobacco flavors are complemented by earth notes. The long finish smacks of licorice spice, cream and coffee.
