Puro Vintage from Aurora Ships to Shops

Puro Vintage from Aurora Ships to Shops

On January 19, distributor Miami Cigar & Co. shipped out the first boxes of the new Aurora Puro Vintage 2004, a double-tapered 6 1/2 inch by 52 ring Salomon-shaped cigar made in the Dominican Republic at the La Aurora S.A. factory.

This is the second release of the Puro Vintage since the 2003 edition hit the market in 2009. Although the cigar is a bit smaller this time around, the blend is the same, consisting of an Ecuadoran wrapper around Dominican binder and filler tobacco, all of which was culled from a 2004 harvest.

At $18.75 per cigar, the Puro Vintage 2004 comes packaged in boxes of eight. Only 1,000 boxes were made.

The original Puro Vintage rated 92 points in a 2009 Cigar Insider. Look for a rating of the new vintage soon.

This story first appeared in the January 24 issue of Cigar Insider.
