Leon Jimenes Connecticut

Leon Jimenes Connecticut cigars are handcrafted by La Aurora factory, the oldest cigar company in the Dominican Republic. Although the cigar factory surfaced in 1903, they introduced these handmade cigars in 1953 to honor the founder and his brother. Due to the Connecticut wrapper leaf’s growing fondness throughout the first half of the century, La Aurora started crafting a blend with it for the Leon Jimenes cigars brand. Since then, cigar lovers consider it a relentlessly consistent blend from one of the world’s premier cigar factories. In fact, this particular Leon Jimenes cigar blend excels in woody and nutty tastes, with a touch of cocoa. So add one of these Dominican vintage cigars to your collection.

At La Aurora, they craft each cigar by hand with exceptionally light Connecticut shade leaf wrappers draping the exterior. Additionally, they make the filler using a well-aged recipe of Dominican long-leaf tobaccos that grow in El Cibao - where the Dominican Republic’s most fertile valleys lie. These meticulously rolled cigars result in a consistently flavorful medium-bodied taste. If you like smooth and elegant smokes, you’ll love this cigar blend. The pleasant aroma will enamor you and everyone around you. Leon Jimenes Connecticut cigars are easy on the eyes, palate, and wallet. Moreover, they are a perfect complement to a glass of sweet rum. Affordable yet luxurious, available here at Cigar Country.
