La Aurora USA, LLC, has announced the upcoming launch of the La Aurora Small Batch line, a limited-edition collection that offers aficionados a taste of Master Blender Manuel Inoa’s creations. The inaugural release, La Aurora Small Batch Lot No. 002, has been aged for 15 years.
Their aging room, typically reserved for the maturation of core products, will now house unique and limited offerings under the Small Batch label. Each release represents an exploration from Manuel Inoa’s past works.
According to Guillermo León, President of La Aurora, “In each blend, Manuel demonstrates his experience, talent, and commitment to providing quality products to both new consumers and cigar aficionados.”
Master Blender Manuel Inoa added, “Small Batch is a series that is very special to me. These cigars will only ever exist in small batches, each featuring distinct tasting notes, with some having been aged up to 19 years. For that reason, we wanted to make all 222 boxes of Lot No. 002 exclusively available to retailers in the U.S. market.”
Small Batch Lot No. 002 is presented in a vintage salomon format (6 1/2 X 50/60). This cigar features a Corojo wrapper paired with a Dominican Republic binder and long-filler leaves from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
Lot No. 002 is designed to provide a delightful 60-minute smoking experience with wood notes throughout. It pairs exceptionally well with strong coffee to kickstart the day or premium rum and cognac for a luxurious evening wind-down.
This limited-edition release will consist of 10 handmade cigars aged for 15 years, packaged in 222 dress boxes. La Aurora Small Batch Lot No. 002 is expected to retail for $13 per cigar or $130 per box, with availability slated for October. Aficionados should act quickly, as this exclusive release is anticipated to sell out swiftly.
