La Aurora 100 Anos Cigars were released in 2003 to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the opening of La Aurora Cigar Company. This was followed by a number two ranking by Cigar Aficionado and high praise each year since its first production.
La Aurora 100 Anos Cigars feature six styles of vitolas. They craft a Robusto measured at 5x50rg, a Churchill at 7×50 rg, a Belicoso at 6 ¼ x 52, a No.4 at 5 ¼ x 42, a Lancer at 6 7/8 x 4, and a Preferido at 6 x 58. All the tobacco used for this line of Dominican puros has been aged since at least the year 2000, if not earlier. The wrapper and binder are made of a Dominican Corojo leaf, while the filler tobacco uses the finest Dominican Pilato Cubano.
These Corojo cigars are a creamy, light chocolate color that is brilliantly offset by bright and majestic label bands. This bright red, gold, white and filigree covered band features a lion as a bold and kingly center point. This stogie gives off the sweet scent of chocolate, coffee and hay. The cold draw enhances the existing smells while adding a dark Dominican tone and a sweet woodsy taste.
This is a stick of a very complex nature, perfect for the experienced enthusiast. The first pulls are firm without becoming restrictive, and show off this stogies creamy, maple-cinnamon taste. This gives the stogie a slight cookie note secondary to the main earthy mocha flavor. The cookies and cream profile was carried into the second third where it was joined by the additional secondary flavors of leather and a bite of tart. By the final third the taste of cinnamon cream had subdued slightly. Earthy chocolate and a leather tinge complimented by a coffee note ended this smoke masterfully. La Aurora 100 Anos Cigars are geared toward enthusiasts who desire full complexity, strength and body without sacrificing craftsmanship and flavor.

La Aurora Preferidos Cameroon cigars are an exceptional example of how a high quality stogie doesn’t have to cost a fortune. The unique blend of exotic tobaccos has been aged for over three years with the final fermentation process involving oak rum barrels. The barrels are not meant to infuse the flavors associated with rum such as dark molasses. Instead, the barrels speed up the process richening the tobaccos.
The wrapper is an African Cameroon while the binder is a stout Piloto Cubano. The filler is a blend of Cameroon, Bahia and Cubano tobaccos. Manufactured in the Dominican Republic, each stogie is a rich blend of culture and history. The combination provides the smoker with a medium-bodied strength that reviewers claim is a touch on the strong side by the finish of the stick.
Reviewers claim this stick is enjoyable and refreshing with a complexity that keeps the smoker coming back for more. The flavors of the natural tobacco are never overtaken by the accentuating tastes. In the first third, smokers enjoy a woodsy spice flavor sensation with touches of sweet ginger that holds true with little change until the final third. The final third sees the sweetness vanish with a creamy coffee taking its place.
La Aurora Preferidos Cameroon cigars are definitely a favorite among smoking enthusiasts. The manufacturer really knows how to create a unique flavor that holds strong from start to finish. There are plenty of reasons to appreciate this fine stogie. Reviewers are giving it ratings that are outstanding. Strong construction, delicious flavors and a stable design make this a respected and beloved stogie.

What makes the La Aurora Puro Vintage 2004 unique?
Wrapper: The Ecuadorian wrapper is a beautiful shade of brown, with an oily and toothy appearance. A quick smell elicits aromas of caramel, and there are only a couple veins running the length of the stogie. No soft spots! An incredible example of what all Salomon vitolas should aspire to be.
Tobaccos: The Ecuadorian wrapper is joined by a Dominican filler and binder. The tobaccos have a slight smell of cedar because the leaves have been aged for five years in a cedar barrel. Each of the limited edition stogies is hand-rolled to perfection before being introduced to the public.
Flavors: The initial flavor is described as being a meaty cedar with a quick blast of pepper that quickly pulls away. The draw is nothing short of extraordinary, and the slightest hints of sweet caramel come forward. Nutmeg helps transition from one third to the next. Woodsy sweet flavors prevail, especially in the final third. A robust blend of flavors makes this a favorite among aficionados.
Strength: La Aurora Puro Vintage 2004 cigars are an enigma. It is said that what starts off as a medium-bodied flavor and strength transitions with each draw to a stronger, more robust experience. There is never any overheating or harshness present, and what begins as a medium-bodied stick is definitely full-bodied by the final draw.
Seasoned aficionados and novices alike will enjoy this stick. The flavor blend is ideal and a great example of what La Aurora can accomplish. While many people shy away from the larger sticks, this limited edition stogie is a great way to get started enjoying a meaty yet smooth cigar.

The company that produces the La Aurora Barrel Aged cigars allowed them to ferment for many years before being sold in stores. This means that the stogies were encased in their sealed casks, until the company decided they had aged long enough to present themselves as the premium stick they were intended to be. Rumor has it that they were encased for 4 years, though this is only a rumor as it has not been confirmed by the manufacturer. One thing that is certain is that these sticks have been stored in empty rum casks, adding a satisfying sweetness to their flavor profile.
This prestigious company opened 107 years ago, and is located in the Dominican Republic. They were known for their mild creations in the past, but recently chose to create something with a bolder taste. The result was a stick that pleased aficionados worldwide with its bold flavors.
The stogies are packed evenly with tobacco from the Dominican and Nicaragua, enclosed in a Dominican Corojo leaf with a delightful Dominican binder.
The cigar is said to taste sweet and creamy in the smoke, though it starts off with a firmer draw than many prefer, but fear not, because reviewers stated that the draw loosened as the experience continued. Reviewers say that the flavors start off rather sweet and then transform into a stronger, oaky flavor.
As stated earlier, the aging process contributes to the sweet flavor that was noted, but the oak is present from the wrapper and tobacco, as well as the aging process. The La Aurora Barrel Aged cigars are highly favored among aficionados and is a rather affordable option that offers an interesting experience.
