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 smoke 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."
“This cigar is amazing! I got two of them in the cigar of the month pack. The first one didn't impress me. But I let the second one sleep for two months and WOW! This is crazy good. Smooth draw, generous smoke, aromatic flavor - if you are look for a ten buck stick, this is it.”

“My favorite wrappers are Cameroon, Corojo and Habano, so when I saw Guillermo Leon in a CI internet special and they contained all three leaves, I had to buy some! My first was only in the humidor one day before I broke down and lit it. I should have waited. The second was a few weeks later and it was great. Wonderful pepper and semisweet cedar aroma. It’s a beautiful cigar to look at. The Corona Gorda burned evenly and was a comfortable size for me...I will continue to let them nap for a few more months.”

“This smoke is outstanding. I would rate it among the Ave Maria. Nice white ash and some very impressive flavors from its mixture of binders and fillers. Must check this bad boy out.”
