La Aurora S.A. struck gold in 1999 when it resurrected its oldest cigar size, a bulbous, bombshaped perfecto known as a Preferido. The smokes have been among the most popular the company makes, but they're difficult to roll. How to move more? Take the Preferido blend and roll it in a robusto shape, the most popular cigar size in America. The Aurora Preferidos Maduro Robusto, which debuted in 2009, is the only cigar on our Top 25 list made with Brazilian tobacco. It uses a considerable amount, both in the filler blend and as the wrapper leaf. The result is a cigar heavy on hickory, black cherry and raisin notes, with considerable strength.
