One of the largest cigar producers in the Dominican Republic, dating from 1903, Leon Jimenes also produce the La Aurora brand. Both of these fine cigars are made from Cuban-seed tobacco. The Leon Jimenes brand has a rich, full-bodied taste with a Connecticut Shade wrapper. The La Aurora brand has a mild- to medium-bodied taste with a dark, rich Cameroon wrapper. Both are of superior quality.
Each leaf is cut at the ideal moment, and even then, nine out of ten are ruthlessly rejected in a quest for perfection. Every leaf is hung and aged, sometimes for as long as three years. Only the highly-prized and rare Cameroon leaf is used for the wrapper, delivering a fuller, sweeter flavour and aroma. Cigars are totally hand-made, using only long filler and the best part of each selected leaf. To ensure consistent quality, rollers are allowed to make only a set maximum quantity each day. Nothing is ever rushed.
