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 6×58 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 6×58 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 find more information about Michael’s Tobacco online at www.cigarskeller.com.
