La Aurora has confirmed its newest Preferido will be one with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The cigar, which will be known as Preferidos Diamond, will come in a black tubo and the signature 5 x 54 Preferidos No. 2 vitola. Nestor Miranda, head of Miami Cigar & Co., the U.S. distributor for La Aurora, first announced the new extension in early April.
Preferidos Diamond will debut at IPCPR 2012 alongside other new La Aurora products including the rebranded Guillermo León & new Fernando León Reserva Familiar, 100 Años and 15 Minutes Break extensions.
