As you probably know, La Aurora is one of the cigar industry's premier factories, and represents the oldest and most respected factory in the Dominican Republic. Within these walls, a fantastic array of high-end, highly rated blends are created, including Preferidos, 1495, and Cien Anos to name a few. But the original La Aurora is the factory's bread and butter. A delicious, mild to medium-bodied, Cameroon-wrapper handmade that'll rival any cigar on the market.
La Aurora's quality control standards are some of the strictest used today. Each and every cigar must undergo countless levels of verification prior to receiving a band, let alone making its way into a box. But, even the best in the business makes a mistake here and there. That's where La Aurora 2nds come into play. These cigars are La Aurora Cameroon. However, they were rejected due to some aesthetic inconsistency....the wrapper was too light or dark, or contained a sun spot or heavy vein. Either way, the cigars smoke and taste exactly like the firsts, giving you a fantastic bang for the buck.
