This year, the legend would have turned 100 and La Aurora celebrates that by releasing a limited edition La Aurora Family Reserve Fernando León Legacy Lancero.

Fernando León was the third son of La Aurora’s founder, Eduardo León Jimenes, and served as master blender for his father’s company before taking the helm in the 1950s. He guided the company through dictatorships, political strife and more and was renowned in the cigar industry for his knowledge and passion for tobacco. He would have turned 100 on April 22.

The lancero measures 6 7/8 x40 with a pigtail. These elegant cigars allows wrappers to play a bigger part of the flavour profile. The blend is a mix of Brazilian and Dominican filler, a Dominican binder and a specially aged Corojo wrapper from the island. It was harvested in 2008 and used on the last project Don Fernando worked on before he passed away a year later. The wrapper was grown at his experimental Sabana del Puerto farm in the Bonao region of the Dominican Republic.  There are 1000 boxes of 10 cigars available.
