La Aurora Preferidos Sapphire Connecticut Toro Cigars reach the perfect midpoint between smooth and relaxing tastes and full-throttle explosive flavors. La Aurora has been quietly making some of the best cigars on the market since 1903, and the Preferidos might be their best creations yet! Built using an incandescent mix of Dominican, Brazilian, and Cameroon tobacco all carefully cradled in a vibrant Ecuadorian sun-grown Connecticut shade wrapper. Sparking one up brings to the palate the strong tastes of black pepper, cinnamon, cedar, oak, espresso, toast, and buttery leather. The blend is so intricate it was awarded a rare 90-point rating from the minds at Cigar Aficionado. At five and a half inches, with a fifty-four ring gauge, this Toro is a magnificent forty-minute smoke.
