A long forgotten offering from the famous La Aurora family aged for 15 years. We discovered this unreleased lot in a private warehouse during a trip to the Dominican Republic.
We jumped on the chance to be the exclusive provider of this most excellent cigar in Corona, Robusto and Churchill formats. To be honest this is a real surprise of a cigar discovery.
Much like Rasputin himself this cigar has a lot of charisma, great appeal and can work a room with a charming delicious aroma that evokes memories of ‘great cigars of our time’.
A maduro-esque wrapper with slight veining provides some earth and sweetness with easy pull. Almond and marzipan develop in the second third for sure and transitions into delicious complexity for the final third with no harshness or strong pepper. Certainly the 15 year aging has created some unique character to this smoke.
For us it’s now our go to cigar for the cigar enthusiast looking for a nostalgic discovery.
