IPCPR 2019: La Aurora

Null

While La Aurora has a number of new cigars for 2019, you wouldn’t be entirely chastised if you walked around the booth and needed to do a second lap to figure out what’s new. That’s because everything new is an extension of an existing product and most of those existing products were introduced last year.

As for the booth, La Aurora is once again in the booth of Miami Cigar & Co., the company’s U.S. distributor. The booth is now divided into four sections: one part features a bar and the entrance, Toscano gets another, Miami another and La Aurora the fourth section.

La Aurora 115th Anniversary Regular Edition

This is the regular production version of the limited edition cigar that was introduced globally last year. Both versions of the 115th debuted internationally first and this is the second of the two to land stateside.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador
  • Binder: Brazil
  • Filler: Brazil, Dominican Republic & Nicaragua
  • La Aurora 115th Anniversary Robusto (5 x 50) — $9.50 (Box of 20, $190)
  • La Aurora 115th Anniversary Toro (5 3/4 x 54) — $10 (Box of 20, $200)
  • La Aurora 115th Anniversary Belicoso (6 1/4 x 52) — $10.50 (Box of 20, $210)
  • La Aurora 115th Anniversary Gran Toro (6 x 58) — $11 (Box of 20, $220)

Production: Regular Production

Release Date: June 2019

La Aurora Hors d’Age 2018

I’d argue this is the most confusing name on a cigar today. It’s a follow-up to last year’s Hors d’Age 2017. Yes, the 2018 version was called 2017. See that date refers to when the cigars were rolled. The tobacco was aged for 12 years, then it was rolled into a cigar and then aged for another year. It all adds up to a confusing name, though last year’s cigar was quite good.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador
  • Binder: Ecuador
  • Filler: Colombia, Dominican Republic & Nicaragua
  • La Aurora Hors d’Age 2018 (6 x 54) — $15 (Box of 15, $225)

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

Release Date: September 2019

La Aurora 107 Cosecha 2007

For this release, the tobacco comes from the 2007 harvest. It was then aged and rolled into a cigar. Like last year’s 107 Cosecha 2006, the blend isn’t identical to the regular production La Aurora 107.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador
  • Binder: Brazil
  • Filler: Brazil, Dominican Republic & Nicaragua
  • La Aurora 107 Cosecha 2007 Robusto Especial (5 x 54) — $10 (Box of 10, $100)
  • La Aurora 107 Cosecha 2007 Corona Gorda Especial (6 x 47) — $11 (Box of 10, $110)
  • La Aurora 107 Cosecha 2007 Churchill Especial (7 x 50) — $12 (Box of 10, $120)

Production: 3,000 Boxes of 10 Cigars (30,000 Total Cigars)

Release Date: September 2019

La Aurora 107 Zeppelin

This blend, however, is the original 107 in a size that is very similar, albeit clearly different, than the Liga Privada Flying Pig. This is more tapered cigar than the Flying Pig. It debuted internationally last year but is now making its U.S. release.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador (Sumatra)
  • Binder: Dominican Republic
  • Filler: Brazil, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua & Peru
  • La Aurora 107 Zeppelin (4 x 58) — $9 (Box of 20, $180)

Production: Regular Production

Release Date: 2018
