This past week, Miami Cigar & Co.’s social media presence was active during its annual sales meeting with updates to a few projects. While the new 107 Maduro, a new blend from the original that soft launched in late 2011, and the Guillermo León by La Aurora Ambassador were described as simply “closer to reality,” a new project emerged—box-pressed versions of the Fernando León by La Aurora and Guillermo León by La Aurora.

As of now, both cigars are scheduled to debut at IPCPR 2013 in a single size according to Miami Cigar & Co.While box-pressing is not new to the La Aurora factory, it is not something the brand has done often.
