La Aurora Cameroon 1903 – nominee and winner in the 2020 Cigar Trophy Awards
Our La Aurora Cameroon 1903 cigar was also nominated for the same category of ‘Best Value’ for the Dominican Republic during last year’s awards and was voted a winner. The win was announced at the gala awards that were held virtually due to Covid-19. During the awards gala, the president of La Aurora, Guillermo León, thanked the ‘Cigar Journal’ magazine for all of the support it provides to the Premium cigar industry, in addition to all the support offered by enthusiasts and consumers.
Likewise, Don Guillermo was very grateful for the award given to La Aurora 1903 Cameroon. In his speech of appreciation, he pointed out that La Aurora Cameroon 1903 is a tribute to one of our first blends created in 1903 and that it is a cigar made by our skilled and passionate artisans.
La Aurora Cameroon 1903 is a cigar from the Original Blends line. It is available in a wide variety of formats. It is named in honour of the country in which it’s wrapper was initially grown. Today it is made from seed tobacco from Cameroon, but grown in Ecuador.
With regards to our La Aurora 107 Nicaragua, which was launched in May 2020, this is its first time being nominated. It is made up of Nicaraguan tobaccos in wrapper, binder and filler. It belongs to the Tobaccos of the World collection, which offers a journey through different tobaccos of the world, hand-crafted by the company’s most international brand, La Aurora 107.
