Looks: Starting off this is definitely a new and fresh look for La Aurora who in the past has always maintained a very traditional cigar band in my opinion. The new Untamed features a band that is bold and bright with colors of black, gold, and red. The centerpiece of the band is a roaring lion, which is the La Aurora logo. Across the side and back reads, “UNTAMED by LA AURORA.” The Untamed has a secondary foot band as well that reads, “UNTAMED” with claw marks in the background. The cigar itself has a dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that has a very nice oily sheen to it. The wrapper leaf is a bit toothy and has some small to medium veins running through it, as well as, a triple cap.

Taste: Upon lighting, the Untamed immediately starts out with a very strong earthy flavor, as well as, a slight red pepper punch on the back of your tongue. About a quarter of the way into this cigar a very light and mild nuttiness begins to develop. Between the quarter and half way mark a notable wood flavor begins to join the earthy and nutty flavors. The red pepper notes have also become more prominent and can be tasted on the back end of each puff. Throughout the last half of this cigar the flavors have maintained and have finished pleasantly. The flavor of this cigar overall is very good.

Strength: Medium bodied.

Burn: Overall the burn was pretty good only requiring one small touch up at the beginning to keep the burn even. After that, this cigar burned evenly throughout. The smoke was plentiful and had a grayish white color to it.

Buy it? Why not. Any cigar coming out of a company like La Aurora is going to have the quality you look for in a good cigar. The Untamed is no different; good quality, full flavor, and a great price point make this cigar one you definitely need to give a try. Smoke it and let us know what you though.
