Wow, this cigar smells really good. As soon as I snatched the La Aurora 115th Anniversary Limited Edition Belicoso out of my humidor, I knew I was in for a good time.
The cigar looks dark and oily and appears well made. After cutting off the tip with my guillotine, the draw was easy. But, at $18.99, will the 115th Anniversary Limited Edition from La Aurora stack up against the extreme competition at this price range? Let's find out!

Learn About This Cigar
The flavors in the first half of the La Aurora 115th Anniversary Limited Edition were quite delicious. However, that first half was also plagued by burn issues due to a stem in the wrapper that wasn't properly de-humidified.
Heading into the second half, the burn did seem to even out – sorta. However, the flavors became bitter in the final third. I really expected more from a company that A:) has been making cigars for over 115 years, and B:) is charging almost $20 for a cigar.
Despite having high hopes for this cigar and really enjoying the flavors in the first half, I can't justify recommending this cigar to you. For all of these reasons, I have to give the La Aurora 115th Anniversary Limited Edition Belicoso a CigarScore of 2.
