The La Aurora factory is the oldest and most respected cigar factory in the Dominican Republic and La Auroras are not just the best selling brand there, they're practically a national treasure. The La Aurora family has grown tobacco in the same fields in the Cibao Valley for more than three generations—a key reason for the brand's legendary consistency. Their Leoninos Robusto is the first premium cigar to utilize the elusive Dominican-grown Corojo wrapper—it's nice, oily and somewhat rough-hewn. The filler blend combines a generous portion of Piloto Cubano leaves, along with Dominican Corojo, Bahia and Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos. The result is a lively, medium-to-full-bodied smoke, rich and loaded with spice but smooth as silk to the nub. It's an expertly created stogie worthy of its heritage. Enhance your smoking experience by pairing the Leoninos with a well-balanced, malty beer such as Scotch-style ale. Alternatively, an American-style India Pale ale with its hoppy spiciness will hold up against this cigar's spice.
