La Aurora is the oldest and most respected cigar factory in the Dominican republic. La Aurora 1903 Edition Preferidos were initially available in one size, the Perfecto (an homage to the original shape made at this factory). The finest selected Dominican filler and binder leaves have undergone a 4 year process aging before being masterfully blended together. The wrappers (which are each special and unique) are aged a year more in rum barrels to enhance the flavor and aroma of these wonderful cigars. After rolling, these masterpieces age for 6 to 8 months in the aging room to ensure a well married flavor profile.
