Gary reviews 10 “Top Shelf” Maduro cigars: If you love the natural sweetness and savory aroma of Maduro wrapper, these dark discoveries are sure to please cigar smokers at every level of experience.
La Aurora’s Guillermo León line hits The Big Apple
The Guillermo León sports a Habana wrapper grown in Ecuador, over a double binder of both Corojo for strength and Cameroon for sweetness. The fillers are from the Dominican Republic, Peru, Nicaragua and Brazil. The Guillermo León is offered in 4 sizes: a Corona (5.5 x 42), a Gran Corona (6 x 47), a Belicoso (6.25 x 52) and a Gran Toro (6 x 58). The MSRP, excluding state taxes, ranges from $7.60 for the corona to $9.80 for the Gran Toro.
“Obviously, this cigar is personal for me,” said León. It is part of my family’s legacy for the past 107 years. In this cigar, I wanted something with deep complexity yet also a stronger smoke than most of our offerings. I think this is something that will please today’s smokers.”
On Friday, October 22nd, select cigar stores throughout the city will get to sample the Guillermo León line. Señor León and Rene Castañeda, VP of sales for Miami Cigars, will be in attendance.
