It’s the grandaddy of the Fernando León and not even close to the same cigar, arguably the best cigar to come out of La Aurora’s factory. It’s understated—almost chameleon like—nearly impossible to tell apart from a standard León Jimenes Corona. It was the cigar of the late Don Fernando León Asensio and for the few that smoke them—including yours truly—it’s a cult classic. One of the hidden gems of the cigar world. Even if you don’t like the Fernando León, it’s hard to see someone not appreciating the classic Corona.
