The untamed face of the Dominican Lion.
La Aurora Cigars, the most ancient Dominican cigars manufacturer, presents their most modern line: La Aurora Untamed.
An innovative development, which is the result of 14 years of work, by the master blenders of La Aurora. La Aurora’s lion shows with a cigar of very high strength, their wildest side.
La Aurora Cigars presents their last creation, La Aurora Untamed, amidst the celebration of the IPCPR 2014, the most important fair at international level within the world of premium cigars, in Las Vegas from the 19th to the 23rd of July. ” Untamed”, is the result of the hard work of the master blenders of La Aurora, whom, have been during the past 14 years, working with tobacco selected specifically for this ambitious project: whose goal is to reach the most demanding customers with unique and well-leveled flavor and fragrance.
La Aurora Untamed recreates a modern and new image, never before used by La Aurora Cigars. The Lion, a symbol of their house since its birth in 1903, shows itself untamed, strong, a symbol of those 14 years of team work at La Aurora, mainly for Mr. Manuel Inoa, the master blender at La Aurora.
Since the year 2000, the tobacco masters at La Aurora have selected different types of tobacco that form the Untamed mix, testing tobaccos in search of the best smoke. Thanks to the collective effort of its team, La Aurora, has been able to tame harmony, combining four different tobaccos with a Broadleaf Connecticut wrapper, ripe, perfect, soft, and brilliant, thanks to its double fermentation.
One of the goals of the team at La Aurora, was to include in this mix, the Dominican seed Cuban Pilot, one of the most appreciated tobaccos in the Cibao Valley, but rarely ever used due to the rigorous care that is required for the cultivation and sowing of it. With Cuban Pilot within its mix, La Aurora Untamed presents itself as a cigar with a 100% Dominican heart.
A rigorous process
Presented within the quality standards of La Aurora, La Aurora Untamed is the result of 14 years of work. Even though the project was presented in 2000, in wasn’t until 2008, 8 years later, that the first samples were taken to the smokers panels.
The criticism was good, but La Aurora is known for their rigorous processes and strict quality control within all their tobaccos, therefore, even though there were good reviews from the consumers, it was decided to let the cigars mature after already being elaborated for five years more, so that they could reach its maximum point.
The result of this demanding process, is a cigar of high strength, full of flavor, with rich notes of wood, cedar and oak, complimented with coffee and dried fruits notes, such as almonds, and some citric. The oily and dark wrapper gives a delicious and complex final touch to the cigar.
