La Aurora has announced the La Aurora Preferidos Hors D’Age 2021 LE will be featured at the Total Product Expo (TPE) 2023. This is the first time the Hors D’Age has been released in over two years.

Hors D’Age stands for “beyond time” and the line is known for the extra aging process that is used to develop this blend. La Aurora says the product goes through a 12-year cycle from the time the tobacco seeds are sowed to the time it reaches consumers. The line first made its debut in 2018, and there have been 2019 and 2020 vintage editions. The 2021 vintage is the fourth release of the line.

The cigar itself is a 6 x 54 Toro that features an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder over Dominican, Colombian, and Nicaraguan fillers. A total of 700 15-count boxes will be released. The cigars are expected to reach retailers in March 2023.

“The New Dawn of La Aurora has arrived, and to mark the beginning of this new dawn and our 120th Anniversary, we’re proud to bring you the limited release La Aurora Preferidos Hors d’Age 2021 LE,” said Ed McKenna, CEO of La Aurora USA, LLC. in a press release “La Aurora is the Dominican Republic’s Original and Oldest Cigar and has set the standard for premium cigars for 120 years.”

“La Aurora Preferidos Hors D’Age is a well-balanced blend with a unique start for an extra-aged cigar. Spicy notes of black pepper spark to life as more delicate flavors approach from the background. While the presence of wood is evident throughout the entire smoke, it is enriched by nuances of cinnamon, nuts, and even citrus in the finish,” added Master Blender, Manuel Inoa. “Its aromatic, rich, and creamy white smoke is characterized by its delicate touches of roasted coffee that prove to be the height of a demanding smoke.”

TPE 2023 takes place in Las Vegas from February 22nd, 2023 through February 24th, 2023.
