Eduardo León Jimenes founded La Aurora 115 years ago, and the company is celebrating the anniversary with a line of cigars called, fittingly, the La Aurora 115th Anniversary. There are three different products in this collection: 115 Anniversary Edition, 115 Anniversary Limited Edition and 115 Anniversary Jar Edition.

The first, regular production cigar features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Brazilian bnder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Brazil. It’s available in four formats: Belicoso, Robusto, Gran Toro and Churchill.

The Limited Edition sports an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper, Dominican binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Brazil. It’s available in a Belicoso format of which only 3,000 boxes were made; the Jar Edition (packaged, as you might imagine, in a commemorative jar) will be limited to 800 jars. The cigars comprise Dominican tobaccos, along with some Brazilian tobacco in the filler blend.
