La Aurora Cigars -
The La Aurora cigar brand’s storied cigar history begins in 1903, when Don Eduardo León Jimenes first opened the doors of his cigar factory in the Dominican Republic. Here the first La Aurora Preferidos cigars in the double perfecto format were produced, using Dominican tobaccos grown just five miles down the road, which were hauled to the factory over dirt roads by donkey. It is from these humble beginnings that the brand would grow to become one of the best-selling cigar brands in the world.
Over 100 years later, La Aurora cigars are still rolled by hand in the Dominican Republic, and are among the most respected in the industry. Producing up to 8 million cigars per year, the La Aurora factory now makes a diverse range of blends to meet the tastes of a variety of cigar lovers. Here’s an overview of our most popular La Aurora cigars:
The Preferido line of beautifully crafted perfecto-shaped cigars is reminiscent of the shapes made by Don Eduardo Leon Jimenes in the company's founding year of 1903. The Naturals are honored with a Cameroon wrapper, the Maduros with dark Brazilian leaf, the Corojos with a stunning Dominican corojo, and there's also a creamy Connecticut version. Each of these gorgeous La Aurora Preferido blends are also offered in festive aluminum tubes (Preferido Delux) for easy carrying and beautiful presentation.
The La Aurora 1495 cigar is a rich, medium to full-bodied smoke with complex flavors of earth, coffee, and spice. An Ecuadorian sun grown wrapper and Dominican Corojo binder and filler tobaccos provide an excellent balance and bold character, making the 1495 yet another smooth classic from the Dominican Republic's oldest cigar factory.
