La Aurora has announced Hors d’Age, a new limited edition cigar that will make its debut at the IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas this month. All the tobacco in Hors d’Age was harvested in 2006. Production is limited to 6,000 boxes.
The La Aurora Hors d’Age features an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder, while the filler is mix of Colombian, Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. They’ll come packaged in 15-count boxes of one vitola, a 6 x 54 Toro.
A La Aurora press release describes the cigar thusly: “It is a well-balanced cigar with a start unique to a cigar with extra years of aging, in which spicy notes of black pepper predominate, which give way to more complex and delicate flavors. The presence of wood is evident throughout the smoke but is enriched with nuances of cinnamon, nuts and even citrus. With touches of roasted coffee, its finish is powerful and creamy, at the height of a demanding smoke.”
