A Cigar History lesson today, courtesy of your friends at La Aurora. At work here in La Aurora AND Dominicano cigars is an age-old Dominican fermentation process that forgoes the usual building and turning of tobacco hands in pilons; instead, a very hard-to-grow strain of tobacco called ‘Andullo’ is wrapped like a rope in palm or yucca leaves (called ‘yaguas’) to age. A full leaf of Andullo is used in the blend of every AND Domincano cigar, whose name is Spanish for ‘Dominican DNA.’
And the Dominican roots on this La Aurora run deep: the Andullo is matched with Dominican long fillers from the Cibao Valley, plus Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania tobaccos; the binder is Cameroon, then it’s back to Cibao for the Dominican-grown wrapper. Medium-full and stunningly complex, La Aurora AND Dominicano cigars are Dominican tobacco culture at its finest, right down to the most elemental level – add a box to your cart today and try for yourself!
