La Aurora, the Dominican Republic's oldest and most prestigious cigar brand, has been synonymous with top-quality tobacco products and exemplary craftsmanship for well over a century. Established in 1903 by Eduardo León Jimenes, a passionate tobacco enthusiast, and entrepreneur, La Aurora has consistently grown and evolved, maintaining an unwavering commitment to producing some of the finest, handcrafted cigars in the world. The company meticulously selects the tobacco leaves used in each cigar, ensuring that only the most exceptional ingredients comprise their transcendent final product. The artisans at La Aurora are true masters of their craft; the careful blending and construction of each cigar reflect the depth of experience and dedication to their art.

La Aurora's impeccable reputation for quality is exemplified in its Hors d'Age line, which has gained great admiration and respect among aficionados worldwide since its release in 2018 with follow-up offerings in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Representing the pinnacle of La Aurora's expertise and dedication to perfection, the Preferidos Hors d'Age 2021 LE is making a comeback in 2023, after a two-year hiatus. This exquisite limited-edition release boasts a stunning blend of top-quality tobacco, culminating in a complex, exciting flavor profile that complements its impressive size and prodigious strength. As the epitome of Dominican cigar-making tradition, La Aurora Preferidos Hors d’Age 2021 LE serves as a prized possession in any cigar aficionado's collection.

La Aurora Preferidos Hors d’Age 2021 LE

Bursting with complexity and richness, the La Aurora Preferidos Hors d’Age 2021 LE is a true masterpiece. The term "Hors d'Age" means "beyond age" and is typically used in the world of spirits, particularly cognac, to denote an exceptionally aged product. By using this term, La Aurora signifies that the tobacco leaves utilized in this limited-edition release undergo an extensive aging process (that spans over a remarkable 12-year period), allowing the complex flavors of the tobacco to harmoniously meld and mature, for a truly unparalleled smoking experience.

This carefully chosen blend comprises tobacco leaves from various countries, reflecting the diversity of flavors and characteristics that are present in the world's best tobacco-growing regions. Aged Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Colombian long-fillers skillfully combine to create a potent and robust foundation. A sturdy Ecuadorian binder envelopes the filler and provides structural integrity, while an exquisite Ecuadorian wrapper contributes to the cigar's smooth appearance and amps up the blend's complexity, and lends it an air of sophistication and luxury.

Measuring 6 inches in length and showcasing a 54-ring gauge, the Preferidos Hors d'Age 2021 LE is a generously sized Gran Toro format cigar. This size allows for a decidedly voluminous smoke production and excellent burn rate, resulting in a gratifying smoking experience. Strength-wise, this scrumptious cigar leans towards the higher end of the spectrum, encompassing a medium-to-full-bodied character with delectable notes of black pepper and earthy undertones of wood that seamlessly intertwine with subtle hints of citrus and coffee. The aroma emanating from these meticulously crafted cigars is a delightful symphony of rich, velvety scents that leaves the aficionado desiring more.

As for the construction, these limited-edition cigars are handcrafted by La Aurora's most skilled torcedores, who dedicate their time and expertise to ensuring that each cigar is flawless in appearance and draw. The result is a stogie that not only provides a smoking experience that is pure euphoria but also boasts a top-notch burn and ash quality.

Elevating the luxurious feel, La Aurora Preferidos Hors d'Age 2021 LE cigars will be presented in elegant dress boxes, each thoughtfully designed to house a set of 15 premium cigars. However, rarity adds to the allure of these exceptional cigars, as a mere 700 dress boxes of La Aurora Preferidos Hors d'Age 2021 LE will be produced.
