La Aurora debuts "Broadway" cigars series exclusively for New York State
Miami Cigar & Co. is now the second major premium cigar manufacturer to offer cigars made "exclusively" for New York. Last month, Alec Bradley Cigars announced they will be releasing their Alec Bradley New York Cigars edition on December 10 to New York State tobacconists.
León says, “New York has always been special to me and my family. What has happened with the cigar taxes in New York is tragic. Since we cannot lower the taxes, we worked hard to lower the cost of this cigar without compromising quality.” Adds Miranda, “We are beginning to try to help tobacconists with the Broadway series by La Aurora just in time for Christmas.”
On Monday, December 20th, Cigar Inn on Second Avenue in New York City will host Guillermo León, Nestor Miranda, and Miami Cigar Vice President, Rene Castaneda, with a private dinner to launch the Broadway series. The debut cigar in the series will be the "Sumo Toro" (shown) measuring 5 ¾ X 54. The blend uses a double wrapper of Ecuadorian Sumatran and Nicaraguan over a Dominican Corojo binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru.
Cigar lovers should note that the Broadway Series cigars will only be available at tobacconists in New York state.# # #
