Miami, FL, August 1, 2014 – Miami Cigar & Company and La Aurora are pleased
to announce their collaboration with Michael’s Tobacco and the release of
the LA Aurora Diamond Preferido in a 6x58 double Figurado.
After much anticipation, this release will be limited to 100 boxes
exclusively distributed to both the Euless and Keller locations in Texas.
Along with the usual La Aurora band, this vitola will also sport a secondary
band reading “Michael’s” across the front.
The Michael’s Tobacco exclusive came to be when Miami Cigar & Company
representative, Justin Sandlin held an event displaying La Aurora when
approached by Michael’s tobacco owner, Michael Peacock. Michael being a huge
fan of La Aurora expressed his passion for the blend. To Michael’s surprise,
his conversation reached the Dominican Republic and he was invited to
Santiago, D.R. After getting in the trenches with the crew at La Aurora and
learning the ins and outs of premium cigar making, Michael was handed one of
La Aurora’s prized Preferidos.
During his stay, the idea was brought up to make a special retailer
exclusive for Michael’s Tobacco, and thus the La Aurora Diamond Preferido in
a 6x58 double Figurado was born. La Aurora’s Preferidos wearing the
beautifully dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper lead Cigar Aficionado to
exclaim: "This oily, toothy cigar gives off a rich aroma. It loads the
palate with sweet wood & cream. The finish resonates with cocoa and spice,
balanced & Elegant."
Owner Michael Peacock, couldn’t be happier to bring in such a sought after
blend, not to mention adding a little more exclusivity to the brand. You can
