La Aurora Cigars has never been one to shy away from commemorating the brand's rich legacy—they are, after all, the oldest cigar factory in the Dominican Republic (famously founded in 1903).
One of the most recent examples of the company's respect for the past is the La Aurora 1962 Corojo. No, this cigar does not come with over 50 years age (wouldn't that be something); instead, the "1962" represents the year that La Aurora began incorporating the legendary Corojo tobacco varietal into their blends.
For the 1962 Corojo, La Aurora showcases a classic, leather-hued Corojo wrapper that has been grown in the Dominican Republic's Cibao Valley. The blend is complimented with an Ecuadorian binder and fillers of Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Highlighting the classic flavor profile that has made Corojo famous, La Aurora 1962 Corojo offers a medium to medium-plus body, joined by old-school flavors of oak, leather, cinnamon, light cabinet spices, and earth and sweet nuts on the finish.
