Guillermo Leon Herbert's family has been cultivating tobacco for six generations. With little more than a dream, his grandfather, Don Edwardo Leon Jimenes, founded the country's oldest cigar factory, La Aurora Cigars, on the outskirts of Santiago, Dominican Republic. 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. Leon Jimenes are blended with well-aged Cuban-seed Dominican long leaf tobaccos and wrapped in a special light Connecticut shade leaf wrapper that has been aged three years. We found the construction of this cigar perfect. This unassuming, elegant cigar burns slow and even. The aroma is exquisite. The smoking experience is one of the most balanced we've had in a long time—smooth and mild with a creamy tobacco taste. There's a delicate interplay between gentle tobacco spiciness, mellow, woody highlights and a caramel-like taste. As with the Dona Patricia, this is a stick for those looking for a quick, mild smoke for the morning or early afternoon. Due to its easygoing nature this stogie is perfect with your favorite morning coffee or for lunch with a glass of dry white wine. The International Wine of the Month Club members have the perfect pairing in this month's Napa Cellar's Sauvignon Blanc.
