"I know my grandfather would be pleased about the re-release of the very cigar he began making 96 years ago," said Guillermo León, president, La Aurora. "Smoking a La Aurora 1903 Preferido takes the cigar smoker back in time. I think the marketplace is ripe for the quality taste of yesteryear, a taste that reminds us of the dedication and hard work our family put into making one perfect cigar after another."
"We selected three of our finest rollers to produce the La Aurora 1903 Preferidos, one for each size," said Mr. León. "Due to the precision needed to produce these special cigars, our expectations of our rollers are very high. Each Preferidos roller must have at least 10 years of experience and demonstrate outstanding consistency."
La Aurora 1903 Preferidos will be available in very limited quantities. "We are more interested in the perfection of the cigars than in producing a high quantity," said Mr. León. "Discerning smokers will recognize our efforts."
The La Aurora 1903 Preferidos are constructed with the following materials:
