FrontRunners: Select Smoke

    LA AURORA SAPPHIRE
    To those who consider tubos—cigars protected in metal, glass, or wood tubes—an ideal gift, La Aurora has produced what may be the ultimate offering. The company, the oldest cigar manufacturer in the Dominican Republic, has created a distinctive line of perfectos enclosed in metal tubes shaped in the same symmetrically tapered style as the cigars are. The latest smoke to become available in this format is La Aurora Sapphire, which envelops Dominican filler and binder tobacco in a Connecticut wrapper. The 5 x 54 cigar has a refined, aged, subtly spicy flavor, with a particularly tantalizing nose. The Sapphire is one of the most universally gratifying cigars we have tried; if its taste does not appeal to you, we doubt any cigar’s will. ($408 for a box of 24) 305.599.3395
