The La Aurora Story

Founded in the Dominican Republic by Eduardo Leon Gimenez in 1903, La Aurora started out from humble beginnings. Dealing with dirt roads and donkeys for tobacco transportation, Gimenez had limited potential for expansion. Subsequent civil unrest in the 1920’s and 1930’s followed by three decades of rule at the hands of dictator Rafael Trujillo prevented La Aurora cigars from leaving the Dominican Republic. Not until the 1960’s and the assassination of Trujillo would the company have the chance to make ties with the Philip Morris company who would take them forward to global recognition. In recent years the company have released great cigars such as the ‘A.D.N’ a homage to centuries old Dominican tobacco farming practices, incorporating ageing the tobacco leaves in the husks of palm trees, a technique used by the indigenous people that gives the cigar a flavour profile of its own.
