Guillermo Leon Herbert's family has been cultivating tobacco for six generations. His grandfather, Don Edwardo Leon Jimenes, founded the country’s oldest cigar factory, La Aurora Cigars, located on the outskirts of Santiago, Dominican Republic, with little more than a dream. The Leon family began farming tobacco in the late 1880s, and in 1903 Don Edwardo began producing a traditional Dominican cigar—smooth, sweet, and mild—for sale to the public. Fernando Leon, Guillermo's father, is the master tabacqueriros who developed the Leon Jimenes line in the 1970s. We found the construction of this cigar perfect and the taste utterly satisfying. Note an unassuming, elegant cigar that burns slow and even. Look for a very mild, almost creamy tobacco taste and a very smooth smoking experience with a few herbal notes. For those looking for a quick and mild smoke for the morning or early afternoon, this is your thing. This cigar presents an exquisite aroma and is one of the best-balanced smokes we’ve had in a long time. Notice the delicate interplay between gentle tobacco spiciness and mellow, woody highlights. Overall, this superior blend of mild tobaccos is sure to impress. It would pair up nicely with a medium-bodied ale, bourbon, or blended scotch.
