Last Shipment of Aurora 100 Años Cigars

Last Shipment of Aurora 100 Años Cigars

Tax day, April 15, will also be the date when the final shipment of Aurora 100 Años cigars is released to the market. The highly regarded cigars -- the Belicoso size was named Cigar Aficionado's No. 2 cigar of the year in January 2005 -- have scored very well in Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider taste tests. Only 400,000 were made. They have been rolled and released in small batches since 2004 rather than all at one time.

The bands of each of the cigars are individually numbered, and La Aurora S.A., the cigarmaker that created the brand, began by releasing the higher numbers, working down.

"The numbers are really getting low," said Jose Blanco, Aurora's director of marketing.

They won't go all the way to No. 1 however -- the box containing that cigar is being saved by the company. "We're keeping No. 1 for the museum," said Blanco.
