Miami Cigar & Company’s Facebook page showed off pictures of the second of the four scheduled 125th anniversary cigars for W. Curtis Draper scheduled to launch later this week. 2012 marks the fifth year in a row La Aurora has created a limited edition for W. Curtis Draper’s anniversary, this time a 5 x 50 Robusto in the Cien Años blend. There is no official word on what vintage the blend is from, other than the tobaccos are quite aged.
Like the Cabaiguan WCD 120 REDUX, the first of the anniversary releases for 2012, the La Aurora 100 Años will be limited to 250 boxes, although this time boxes of 10 as opposed to 12.
The cigar will launch on Friday (April 13, 2012) at W. Curtis Draper in Washington D.C. with Guillermo León, head of La Aurora on hand. On Saturday (April 14, 2012), the cigars will debut at W. Curtis Draper’s other location in Bethesda, MD. Both days will include free lunches for box customers.
While pricing is not finalized, it is expected to run $11-$12 per cigar with a slightly increased priced at Bethesda because of the higher tobacco tax.
