Like I mentioned in the review of the corona this wrapper is a lighter shade of chocolate. It looks exactly like the Corona wrapper aside from that. The torpedo cap is well done and the cigar appears to have been rolled perfectly.
The pre-light is exactly like the Corona. The cigar lights well and starts off with a woody flavor and lacks the spice of the Corona. The flavors seem to pick up fullness as I smoke. The woody flavor is accompanied by some cinnamon and nuts. Once again the smoke is plentiful and the draw is just right. This size burned well and self corrected. I think with some time resting the burn would be perfect. The Belicoso is very smooth and the finish is a sweet creaminess that is very pleasing. The ash held well with a uniform charcoal coloring.
The Belicoso was very enjoyable. I enjoyed the flavors that were consistent yet seemed to get fuller in flavor as the cigar progressed. The Corona had that spicy kick while the Belicoso had a smoother start. Both sizes finished full in flavor and were very satisfying. While made of the same tobaccos it amazes me how the various shapes and sizes of cigars can alter the way they smoke and the flavor profile. I enjoyed the 107 in both sizes and am amazed at the price of them for what I experienced. I have a box list and this list must now be rearranged. I have added the La Aurora 107 to my box list and based on these prices they might just be the next box I buy. I also believe with some time they will only get better. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they smoked soon after receiving them. “Remember it is not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. This cigar packs a serious punch due to the high ratio of wrapper to filler/binder. Enjoy!!!”
