For a while it did seem as though La Aurora and its U.S. distributor Miami Cigar & Company might not have a U.S. release this summer. This was one of the bigger surprises because when it has come to summertime and Trade Show releases, La Aurora and Miami Cigar & Company have always been at the forefront. Literally on the final day of Cigar Coop’s Summer of ’20 product coverage came word that La Aurora would be introducing the La Aurora 107 Nicaragua into the U.S. market.
La Aurora 107 Nicaragua made its debut in the International (non U.S.) market earlier this year. It was an ambitious project in that it is a cigar that consists of all-Nicaraguan tobaccos that is produced in the Dominican Republic. La Aurora is not the first company to do this and be successful. Releases over the past few years such as Davidoff Nicaragua and the E.P. Carrillo Encore have proven to be highly successful. Still it was a bit of a surprise to see La Aurora do this because this is a company that uses the tag-line “Dominican defined” as it is La Aurora’s first Nicaraguan puro.
The La Aurora 107 Nicaragua features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, with a Nicaraguan binder and all-Nicaraguan filler. It is presented in 20-count boxes available in three sizes: Robusto, Toro, and Gran Toro, 107 Nicaragua will retail in the United States at $8.50 to $10 MSRP per cigar. There are additional sizes, Churchill and Nicaragua, that have not been released in the U.S. market at this time.
