La Aurora Adds Salomon to 107 Line

La Aurora is adding a size to its 107 line, and it should hit shelves this summer.

Miami Cigar and Company, the U.S. distributor for La Aurora, told Cigar Aficionado today that the new size will be a Salomon at 7 1/4 by 52 ring gauge, the same dimensions as the Aurora Puro Vintage 2003.

The 107 line was released two years ago to celebrate the 107th anniversary of the La Aurora brand. 107 consists of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, a Dominican binder and an Ecuadoran wrapper. The line currently features six sizes.

The Salomon will come in boxes of eight cigars, and will retail for approximately $12.00. Miami Cigar & Company says the first boxes will ship mid-June to a limited number of retailers.
