La Aurora Family Reserve Fernando León Legacy Lancero is crafted with an extra-aged Corojo wrapper from a special harvest of 2008, the last special project developed by Don Fernando León (our former president) at his experimental tobacco farm of Sabana del Puerto (Bonao, Dominican Republic), before his departure. The Lancero format is valued by cigar enthusiasts around the globe for its length and ring gauge, a symbol of excellence and dexterity of a tobacconist.

Much like wine, as tobacco is aged, it has more time to develop its palate for a richer, smoother smoking experience. Cigars crafted with vintage tobacco are more luxurious due to their rarity, and the time it has taken waiting for the tobacco to be just right.
A cigar’s strength typically refers to its nicotine content—and the effect that may have on any particular adult cigar smoker. A mild cigar should not have much of an effect, while stronger cigars may bring about a nicotine buzz, dependent upon an individual’s tolerance level.
The most crucial part of identifying all the nuances of your cigars flavor profile is slowing down and having patience—you might recognize strong notes upon your first draw, but the longer you spend enjoying the mouthfeel, the more you will notice as the smoke continues. Consider cleansing your palate with soda water before smoking so your senses are primed to notice more and more details.
“It’s a very special blend, made exclusively for Fernando León and his family and close friends. With an oily wrapper grown in the Dominican Republic this cigar offers enticing notes of spice and cedar with sweet honey aromas, complemented with citrus essences and a spicy touch that embodies Fernando León’s character.”
