At last year’s IPCPR trade show, La Aurora Cigars introduced an ultra-premium blend, known as ‘Hors d’Age 2017.’

Today, the company has announced the cigar’s followup, ‘Preferidos Hors d’Age 2018.’ The title translates to mean “beyond age,” drawing inspiration from the sought-after cognac of the same name. This year’s release incorporates tobaccos aged 12 years, including an Ecuadorian wrapper and binder, and fillers of the Cibao Valley (DR), Colombia, and Nicaragua. In a press release sent out today, the company did not specify which tobaccos contain the added age.

Hors d’Age is a homage to the time-honored practice of extra-aging fine spirits. We have painstakingly selected twelve-year-old vintage tobaccos to once again create what we believe is a spectacular blend. While the amount of available tobacco that meets our criteria to become Preferidos Hors d’Age is very limited, we have what I believe to be one of our greatest achievements in this line. The year noted on each Hors d’Age says when each blend started it’s extra-aging process, as this process ensures complexity and amazing flavor in a blend that is still beautifully refined and true to our defining what Dominican cigars should be.Guillermo Leon, La Aurora Cigars owner and president
