The oldest cigar company in the Dominican Republic is celebrating 115 years of business with a new line of handmade cigars. It’s called La Aurora 115 Anniversary Edition, and the company debuted the new cigar last month at the InterTabac trade show in Dortmund, Germany.
The wrapper, binder and filler are all Dominican, save for some Brazilian tobacco in the filler. On the strength scale, La Aurora places the 115th at a seven out of 10.
The brand comes in four sizes, but only two vitolas—Robusto and Churchill—will receive a full-scale production. The Belicoso, which La Aurora is calling 115 Anniversary Limited Edition, will be limited to 3,000 boxes.
The Gran Toro size will come packaged in commemorative jars. La Aurora is calling this format 115 Anniversary Jar Edition, and only 800 jars will be produced.
Retail prices have yet to be determined, but the company says that the cigars will be available for the holidays.
