According to the dictionary, prestige is the public’s consideration for someone base on their own merit. And this is precisely what La Aurora León Jimenes Prestige cigar deserves: to have a good reputation, among other things, for its modern brand line with black tubes and boxes, which give it an excellent outer presentation.
However, beauty is always on the inside. In this case, its beauty lies in its typical tobacco flavors—like cedar or leather—thanks to its filler, a highly enriched mix of tobaccos from Valle del Cibao (Dominican Republic), Nicaragua and Peru. At the end of the smoke, it releases cocoa and nuts flavors, thanks to its Connecticut wrapper—clear, with extremely thin veins. The binding leaf is made of tobacco from Ecuador.
La Aurora’s Master Blender, Manuel Inoa, explains that this cigar has “very typical tobacco flavors, like cedar and leather,” which are the main flavors of León Jimenes Prestige. Nonetheless, its “clear, with extremely thin veins” Connecticut wrapper “also provides for a special flavor of cocoa and nuts”, says Manuel Inoa.
In the end, the smoke is very round in the mouth, has a smooth flavor without aggressive notes, where we can easily find “cinnamon, berries and pastry notes,” according to the Master Blender of La Aurora, who points out that this cigar is a bit stronger than the León Jimenes regular.
With a strength of 5.5, León Jimenes Prestige is perfect for people who want to start in the cigar consumption. But it can also satisfy advanced smokers, in which case we recommend enjoying it after a good breakfast.
