|Shapes||Robusto Extra, Short Robusto|
La Aurora’s Manhattan Project.
Felipe Gregorio was founded by Philip Wynne in 1990, and despite having been around for almost 30 years, has managed to stay pretty under the radar. We’re not sure how, though, because he pumps out some seriously good sticks, with the storied La Aurora factory, the first established cigar factory in the Dominican, handling production. Any project La Aurora gets its hands on is going to turn out great, and these Filipo II Fat-Boy Extras are certainly no exception.
These chunky little gems come with a unique Indonesian Maduro wrapper, over an Indonesian binder and two different long-filler leaves from the Cibao Valley in the Dominican Republic. The result is a smooth, satisfying experience with robust earth, leather, and wood notes, and a touch of pepper. The Felipe II Fat-Boy Extra will look great in your humidor, and even better burning in your fingers.
