Guillermo Leon is the owner of La Aurora cigars, and now the proud owner of his own eponymous cigar. Guillermo Leon cigars are crafted with a pretty impressive blend of tobaccos - a dark Ecuadorian Habano Vuelta Arriba wrapper, two binders (Cameroon and Dominican Corojo), along with long-fillers from Peru, Brazil, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. Oh my, that's a complex blend! But in the end, it's worth it. A medium-bodied blend that's smooth, rich, and brimming with complex notes of earth, pepper, cedar, coffee, and a hint of sweetness on the finish. A lovely top-shelf addition to the impressive La Aurora line-up.
Guillermo Leon received a well-deserved 92-point rating, noting: "Solidly rolled with a richly colored wrapper and slightly uneven burn. It's a cedary cigar balanced by plenty of leather and spice on the palate."
Honestly a phenomenal cigar! Had one a few years back from a local brick and mortar store. Nice, easy draw, even burn, and white ash. Had just enough bite to go with the mellow tones. A tough cigar to seek out, but CI has them. Ordered a 5-pack to make sure the blend hasn't changed and they were excellent. Thanks CI!
