Earlier in the year, La Aurora announced their newest regular production line, which shipped in September, to celebrate their 120th Anniversary. The celebration isn’t over, as a limited edition release is going to join the 120th Anniversary line-up.
“This unique edition is a tribute to the very first Preferidos cigars in 1903, with replicas of the original tubes encapsulating a new, meticulously crafted blend. The design features a perfecto or double figurado shape, similar to what was created 120 years ago, and today is our most premium offering known by many from the colored tubos that encase the cigars, which only our most expert rollers are asked to craft. Together, these elements create a perfect synergy of aroma, flavor, strength, and tradition that magnifies the quality of our Dominican tobacco, the craftsmanship of our team of experts, and the history of La Aurora,” said Guillermo León, President of La Aurora.
The blend for this Dominican puro remains unchanged. A Habano 92 wrapper, over an Olor binder and a mix of Corojo, Olor, and Piloto Cubano tobaccos for the filler. The limited edition comes in a 58 x 152 mm (6″) Perfecto size, which each cigar coming in a black hinged tubo. Production is limited to only 2,500 10-count boxes, with a suggested retail price of $40 per cigar.
