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."
An absolute work of art from the oldest and true Dominican cigar factory. I've had the pleasure of visiting the factory in the Dominican and that's where I was introduced to the Guillermo Leon. The tastiest Cigar I've ever had with just a wonderful aroma and strong notes but bit sweet all at once. Absolutely delicious and my favorite cigar from my favorite brand. 6 stars to la Aurora.

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!
