La Aurora’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show releases are high-priced and highly age. The company showed off two blends—one entirely from tobacco from 2006 and the other from tobacco just from the 2007 crop—and the cheapest item is $20.

Once again, La Aurora is located in the booth of its U.S. distributor, Miami Cigar & Co. This is one of the few booths that basically has not changed since I started coming to the trade show, though they have opened up space by taking out offices.

La Aurora Hors d’Age

Translating to “beyond time,” the idea behind Hors d’Age is old tobacco. In this case, the tobacco is all from 2006.

  • Binder: Ecuador
  • Filler: Colombia, Dominican Republic & Nicaragua


  • La Aurora Hors d’Age (6 x 54) — $20 (Boxes of 15, $300)

Production: 500 Boxes of 15 Cigars (7,500 Total Cigars)

La Aurora Hors d’Age Humidor

La Aurora brought a massive humidor containing 146 cigars. The humidor is made from sold wengue wood with a Spanish olive root lid. It contains a Cigar Spa humidification unit. More importantly, there are five exclusive sizes including the comically large Stravaganza. I am told these sold extremely well.

Pricing is $5,000.
