Tasting Note


Aurora 1495


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

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: 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.

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.
