With 2022 being the 100th birthday of the late Don Fernando León Asensio, La Aurora Cigars has been putting emphasis on the Fernando León brand. This year, La Aurora Cigars will make available to retailers at the Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, the La Aurora Family Reserve Fernando León Legacy Lancero. This is a cigar that was previously only offered in the Dominican Republic.
Don Fernando León was the father of La Aurora Cigars’ President Guillermo León and son of La Aurora founder Eduardo León Jimenes. Don Fernando was also considered to be a cigar master in his own right.
The La Aurora Family Reserve Fernando León Legacy Lancero features a Corojo wrapper harvested from 2008, a Dominican binder, and a combination of Brazilian and Dominican tobaccos in the filler. The tobacco for the Corojo wrapper is part of the last special project that Don Fernando developed in the experimental farm of Sabana del Puerto in Bonao.
The cigar itself 6 7/8 x 40 and features a traditional lancero pig-tail cap. A total of 1,000 boxes of ten have been produced. Pricing is set at $20.00 per cigar.
The limited edition Fernando León Legacy Lancero follows the La Aurora Fernando León Limited Edition Belicoso which was a limited edition cigar released in 2021.
