Guillermo and Nestor go to Washington

Reading Time: 2 minutes

At the reception, Leon will focus on his recently introduced La Aurora 107. The cigar commemorates the 107th Anniversary of La Aurora’s founding. The company, part of Grupo Leon, is the oldest cigar maker in the Dominican Republic. Introduced in May 2010, the 107 has been an instant success, much as La Aurora’s Cien Año, Preferido, and 1495 Series.

Miranda, the man behind Tatiana flavored cigars and the Nestor Miranda Collection, is the co-founder of Miami Cigar & Company, a twenty-one year old enterprise that distributes La Aurora cigars and Leon Jimenes cigars. As one cigar magazine recently described him, Miranda, “The most interesting man in the cigar industry!”

The Congressional Cigar Association is an officially recognized bipartisan organization of Congressional staffers from The House and Senate, all of whom are cigar aficionados. The organization’s purpose is to create a bipartisan atmosphere amongst staffers of both parties and the cigar smoking community.

In the current climate, where cigar smokers are being heavily taxed by the Federal Government, as well as in numerous states, and with the advent of smoking bans and prohibitions, Leon and Miranda see this event as an opportunity to foster a better understanding of the industry and its contributions to the economy. Moreover, CCA events are frequently attended by Congressmen and Senators who enjoy the relaxing, contemplative benefits of fine cigars.

Organized by CCA, the reception will be supplied with La Aurora 107’s and Nestor Miranda Collection cigars, making for  an afternoon of conviviality and good cigars all within view of the Capitol and The White House. For more information on this special event, click here.

On Thursday, 22 July, there will be a private dinner held at the Blue Duck Tavern, located in the Park Hyatt Hotel. Limited to ten guests, the cost per person is $200. The guests will be seated in Chef Brian McBride’s private dining room. Guillermo Leon and Nestor Miranda will also be present to introduce their new cigars, and share in the camaraderie that cigar dinners such as these always engender.
