Michael’s Tobacco in Keller and Euless, Texas will be the receiving a limited edition, store-exclusive size of the La Aurora Preferido Diamond. This will be a 6 x 58 double figuardo and will be limited to a total production of 100 boxes.
According to a press release the Michael’s Tobacco exclusive came to be when Miami Cigar & Company (La Aurora’s Distributor) representative, Justin Sandlin held an event displaying La Aurora when was approached by Michael’s tobacco owner, Michael Peacock. Michael being a huge fan of La Aurora expressed his passion for the blend. To Michael’s surprise, his conversation reached the Dominican Republic and he was invited to Santiago, D.R. During his stay, the idea was brought up to make a special retailer exclusive for Michael’s Tobacco, and thus the La Aurora Diamond Preferido in a 6×58 double Figurado was born.
While the 6 x 58 exclusive will feature the same La Aurora band found across the Preferidos Diamond line, there will also be a secondary band reading “Michael’s” across the front.
