Perfection is often insurmountable. Therefore, when reached in the world of cigars, the only thing missing is decorating them and protecting them in a colorful tube. This is the case of La Aurora 1903 Edition Preferidos Doble Figurado Tubo, also called Perfectos. These seven cigars are manufactured in the same way within the centennial tradition of the company since 1903.

And why they are so extraordinary? Because they are made with the best selection of leaves, which spend only four years in curing and maturation, and an additional year aging in barrels of rum. But the dedication given to these cigars does not end there—once rolled, they remain six to eight months at rest.

And the best of all is that there is a choice of seven cigars made with this love and care, all with different blends, to please all types of smokers. To beautify the quality of these Preferidos cigars, they are presented in tubes of assorted colors and are named after different minerals of those same colors.
