La Aurora Puro Vintage Sampler In the Works


Some “leaked” photos from Hector Paz of Miami Cigar & Co. seems to indicate that a new La Aurora Puro Vintage Sampler is in the works, though specific details remain vague at this point.

Paz, Director of Sales for Miami Cigar & Co., posted the pictures to his Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon, which were subsequently posted on Miami Cigar & Co.’s blog. He and Jason Wood, Vice President of Miami Cigar & Co., are currently in the Dominican Republic visiting La Aurora’s factory, which is where the photos were taken.


The three-pack sampler includes one of each of the 2003, 2004 and 2005 editions of La Aurora’s Puro Vintage releases. It’s worth noting that the vintages do not correspond to the years the cigars were released; the 2003 vintage hit the market in 2008, while the 2004 vintage debuted at the 2011 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show and the 2005 vintage was announced in July 2013.

Barry Stein of Miami Cigar & Co. didn’t have any additional details on the release, though expects that more information will be made available about the sampler in the coming days.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
