La Aurora introduces to the American market an Exclusive Lancero in honor of Fernando Leon Asencio, who dedicated his life to Dominican tobacco since 1937.
It should be noted that this cigar is a celebration of the legacy of Don Fernando. A vast and respected connoisseur in the tobacco business, who gained admiration for his knowledge and closeness to the world of cigars. He was the third son of the founder of La Aurora, Eduardo Leon Jimenes, and quickly stood out among his brothers for his technical knowledge of the tobacco harvest. Fernando Leon was (and still is) an inspiration for the tobacco growers who knew him. Due to his tireless work and his transcendental passion, enhancing what his father bequeathed him.
The lancero format is valued by cigar enthusiasts around the globe for its length and ring gauge. A symbol of excellence and dexterity of a tobacconist. It possesses a blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Peruvian leaves. Obtaining delicate woody notes, alongside with cinnamon and nuts. Complemented with citrus essences and a spicy touch that embodies Fernando Leon’s character.
