The Original Dominican Cigar

La Aurora has set the standard for premium craftsmanship since 1903, featuring masterful blends, impeccable construction, and meticulous attention to detail.

Founded by Eduardo León Jimenes in 1903, La Aurora is a well-established beacon of craftsmanship and quality, growing from a small, family business on a few tareas of land to the most popular Domincan cigar brand today. With this, the iconic lion has become an emblem of the generations who have dedicated themselves to the art of handcrafted cigars. To smoke La Aurora is to experience a piece of Domincan history.

Today, La Aurora spans the globe, bringing the distinct taste of the Dominican abroad to more than 80 countries and five continents. It continues to lead the industry through its commitment to excellence, expertise and integrity.

La Aurora believes an exceptional cigar is more than the sum of its parts. From the careful cultivation of seed and soil to the artisans who prepare the finest tobacco with exacting precision, La Aurora invites you to turn a moment into an occasion.

La Aurora launched a second brand, León Jimenes, in 1987, paying homage to the founder while expressing the spirit of innovation that ensures the brand remains a true original. León Jimenes draws on the expertise of the first Dominican cigar makers and reimagines it for today, resulting in a distinctly modern collection.
