In addition to Off the Rails and Wild One, Total Flame will be showing off a 5 x 54 double perfecto known simply as Total Flame Premium. The cigar is rolled at La Aurora’s E. León Jimenes Tabacalera and looks and measures very similar to La Aurora’s signature Preferidos size, which is also 5 x 54.

Premium Perfecto

Total Flame Premium uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Like the rest of the company’s IPCPR releases, the company hopes to ship the cigars before November. Pricing has not been set, but it will be sold in boxes of eight.

For this release, Total Flame has been granted permission by La Aurora to use the Preferido shape and tubes, under the La Aurora license.

Update (July 17, 2014)–Added that the cigar is being made under the La Aurora license.
