It celebrates the 115th Anniversary of the La Aurora brand. This limited Anniversary release comes in two sizes: the Belicoso and the Gran Toro. The blend is the same for both cigars, but the packaging is different. The Belicoso comes in black lacquered 15 count boxes (with production limited to 3,000 boxes).
The opening is spicy. Then vegetal notes and wood develope on a sweet base. There is also a rich walnut aroma, followed by ripe fruit, cocoa and hints of cinnamon. In the finale, floral notes on a sapid base.
HOW ARE THE AWARDS MADE?
Among the cigars tested during the year in blind tastings and reviews, those that scored the best score get re-selected. These products were then tested once again in a new blind tasting, which means not knowing what they are during the tasting. The test results are then compared and the TOP 5 are made.
Since 2015, CigarsLover Magazine has focused on terroirs, in order to give the right space to all the producing countries.
From 2018, the TOP 5 were paired with the TOP 50, which lists the 50 best cigars without distinction of origin. This list, together with the Best Brands, the Best Buy and the Best Boutique Brands, will be published in Winter 2019 issue of CigarsLover Magazine.
