Look for a new cigar from the oldest cigar company in the Dominican Republic this week. La Aurora, which is celebrating 107 years of history in 2010, is set to release the Guillermo Leon at the IPCPR show. It’s the company’s first cigar to be made with two binders instead one, according to Cigar Aficionado, and it’s the first from La Aurora to be named for the head of the company.
“Guillermo has been working on it for over a year. We probably did 50 blends on it,” said Jose Blanco, vice president of sales for La Aurora. “He was driving me and everybody in production crazy on it.”
