Cigars make a great holiday gift, but shopping for them can be difficult. With so many smokes on the market it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with choices. La Aurora, the oldest cigarmaker in the Dominican Republic, has created a solution to save time and frustration in the humidor: the company has launched sampler packs of its top cigars, organized into different themes for streamlined holiday shopping.
Named after company founder León Jimenes, the León Jimenes Favorites Sampler showcases cigars with different strength levels and tobaccos from across the globe. Designed to express the spirit of cigarmaking innovation, the five-count sampler includes smokes like the León Jimenes Prestige Robusto, an easygoing cigar cloaked in a Connecticut leaf, and the León Jimenes Doble Maduro Robusto, a hearty cigar rolled with an inky-hued Brazilian wrapper.
Standout samplers include La Aurora’s Best Sellers Sampler and Pairings Sampler. The latter is perfect for holiday parties, featuring five cigars that have been specially selected to complement drinks like coffee, rum, beer and wine. One of the cigars in the Pairings Sampler, the La Aurora 107 Nicaragua Robusto, scored 90 points in the Feb. 2021 issue of Cigar Aficionado.
To make shopping even easier, La Aurora has developed a direct-to-consumer website for fast, streamlined service. Cigar fans can shop all of La Aurora’s products, including best-sellers, accessories and sampler packs without having to drive to the cigar shop. Along with hassle-free delivery, customers can expect free shipping on all their orders.
While sample packs are an ideal go-to gift for any cigar lover, the La Aurora website also features a short cigar quiz designed to help both novices and cigar pros find the perfect smoke. Answering five simple questions on the quiz unlocks personalized cigar recommendations from La Aurora's master blender.
Since 1903, La Aurora has been perfecting the art of Dominican cigarmaking. The founder’s grandson, Guillermo León, continues the tradition of craftsmanship to this day. Cigar connoisseurs can shop La Aurora with confidence, knowing that the nearly 120-year-old company has built its reputation on impressive blends, impeccable construction and meticulous attention to detail.
Along with holiday gifting, La Aurora’s sampler packs are also great for bachelor parties, golf trips, weddings and graduations. The cigars make a fantastic gift any time of the year, and can turn any moment into an occasion to celebrate.
