At last week’s Procigar Festival in the Dominican Republic, the country’s oldest cigar company showed off its newest release.

The La Aurora 120 Anniversary celebrates the company’s 120th anniversary. Blend-wise, it is made entirely of Dominican tobaccos including a habano 92 wrapper over an olor binder from the Cibao Valley and fillers that include corojo, olor from the Cibao Valley and piloto cubano from the Cibao Valley.

It will be offered in four sizes:

  • La Aurora 120 Anniversary Robusto (5 x 50)
  • La Aurora 120 Anniversary Toro (5 3/4 x 54)
  • La Aurora 120 Anniversary Gran Toro (6 x 58)
  • La Aurora 120 Anniversary Churchill (7 x 47)

Pricing has not been announced, but the company says each size will come in boxes of 20, scheduled to ship this Spring.

“As we commemorate our 120th anniversary, we are proud to mark a milestone that will serve as a reference point for many years to come. Our commitment has always been with creating cigars that embody the rich, distinct flavors of the cigar world,” said Guillermo León, president of La Aurora, in a pass release. “The La Aurora 120 blend we have chosen to create is a product of teamwork to a degree we had never accomplished before.

This is the second time that La Aurora has celebrated a major anniversary with a Dominican puro, the other time being the 100 Años, which celebrated the company’s 100th anniversary.

Update (March 10, 2024) — After measuring the La Aurora 120 Anniversary Toro, we are listing the size as 5 3/4 inches and not 5 1/4 inches as it was originally published.
