Founded in 1903 by Don Eduardo Leon Jimenez La Aurora is the oldest cigar manufacturer in the Dominican Republic. Their much respected production is centered in the famed Santiago de los Caballeros. This area is endowed with an ideal climate and fertile soils perfectly suited to prime tobacco production.
Currently under the direction of Jose Blanco, their more than 100 years of blending expertise continues to net the highest of accolades. Year after year they consistently produce wonderfully complex cigars of the highest quality. The Series 1994 Cameroon is no exception.
After 14 years of aging in the cedar lined vaults of La Aurora this prime Cameroon wrapper was released for production, having extremely limited production, only 18,000 cigars total, less than 2,000 boxes of 10 were produced. At the time of publication I am currently unable to find any of these available anywhere (
they are available from one of our main sponsors, CigarsDirect.com - Inspector - not anymore). I was fortunate enough some time ago to acquire 1 box of 10, currently only 7 are left in my humidor.
