In 2016, La Aurora Cigars capitalized on the company's rich heritage, operating as the first and oldest factory in the Dominican Republic. With such a long history, the company benefits from the many trials, errors, and gained knowledge over time. In many instances, risks had to be taken, venturing to experiment with new tobacco varietals throughout La Aurora's prized blends. La Aurora's Time Capsule series centers each unique cigar on one such tobacco, denoting the brand by the first year that the given tobacco varietal was first used at the famed La Aurora factory.
For Connecticut 1987, La Aurora showcases a Connecticut Shade-Grown wrapper over a Dominican binder and fillers of Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. La Aurora has nearly 30 years experience with this delicate wrapper and has now blended a surprisingly affordable, yet smooth and refined, smoking experience, as thanks to cigar enthusiasts’ support over their prevalent history.
Corojo 1962 features a Dominican-grown, Corojo wrapper, harvested from the Cibao Valley. The blend is then complimented with an Ecuadorian binder and fillers of Nicaragua and the Dominican Cibao Valley. After fifty-four years blending with this Corojo tobacco, La Aurora now showcases their mastery by offering a top-tier smoking experience at an unbeatable price point!
The fourth cigar in the Time Capsule series is La Aurora 1985 Maduro, so named for the cigar's dark Brazilian maduro wrapper. This featured leaf is then joined by fillers and binder of both the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Smokers can expect to find the most full-bodied offering in the Time Capsule collection, showing a syrupy concoction of Hershey's chocolate, maple, earth, and clove-like spice.
