I just wanted to take this spot to say thanks to @MCCBarry and everyone at Miami Cigar and Company for sending this cigar my way.  For the most part I don’t review cigars I just enjoy them and take pictures.  I wanted to note that when I smoked this cigar it just fired on all cylinders for me and was one of the best cigars I’ve had in a while.  — The fact that MCC sent these to me didn’t prompt me to let you know how it was I just enjoyed this cigar a lot.

This week I’m trying something new, every so often either I start a shoot and don’t finish or something else happens to prevent me from completing it.  This leaves me with with orphaned photos so I’m putting them in a segment called “False Starts”.  Enjoy the look at some photos I took before the start of the site and others that didn’t make it due to being orphaned.



La Aurora Gran 107

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sun Grown
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican Republic, Nicaragua
Strength: Medium
For Sale: Bonita Smoke Shop

I asked Jason Wood about the backstory on the La Aurora Gran 107 and he informed me we have this size thanks to the rollers own personal preferences.

The last time I was in the DR I
saw most of the rollers smoking this monster of a cigar and I asked one
of the guys what is was and he gave me one to try. I asked Guillermo why
not release this cigar to the public? After many debates back and forth,
the cigar was born. — Jason Wood

I’d like to take a moment to personally thank the rollers as well as the crew from La Aurora and Miami Cigar for bringing this to fruition as I enjoyed this cigar. Make sure when you try it to let Guillermo Leon, Jose Blanco, and Jason Wood know your thoughts.

Looks like The Cigar Feed broke the story on this cigar, great work Charlie.
