ABOUTLa Aurora 100 Anos
The La Aurora cigar brand was founded in 1903 by an enthusiastic and diligent 18-year-old. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of his entry into the cigar-making arena, La Aurora released the 100 Anos in 2003. Anniversaries should be something very special and the La Aurora 100 Anos is certainly that. It is regarded as one of the best cigars available today.
It all begins with a flavorful Dominican-grown Corojo filler that hints at the smoking pleasure ahead. However, the true magic lies in the use of a Dominican Corojo wrapper, almost unheard of because of the challenging growing conditions most growers have experienced while trying to raise it. La Aurora has somehow mastered the cultivation of the Corojo leaf, though. The La Aurora 100 Anos is one of the few Dominican puros on the market.
Hard work, phenomenal expertise, and masterful selection of leaves combine to produce a very memorable cigar for the aficionado. The 100 Anos starts off with a complex blend of cedar, soft hints of chocolate, and a more pronounced cocoa taste. As you continue smoking the La Aurora 100 Anos, the chocolate really steps forward, sometimes accompanied by a whiff of walnut, a taste of caramel, a touch of cinnamon, and even a pinch of pepper. The 100 Anos will certainly never be considered boring by even the most jaded long-time cigar enthusiast.
Given the challenges associated with growing the Dominican Corojo wrapper and the limited-release status of this anniversary cigar, the La Aurora 100 Anos is rare. Only 300,000 were produced, so the wise aficionado with a propensity for acquiring the best of the best is advised to keep a sharp look out for a box of these deluxe beauties. The 100 Anos is definitely a cigar you’ll want to save for very special occasions with very special people.
