Cigar Journal Magazine Cover Winter Edition 2016 La Aurora CigarsTalking about La Aurora involves more than just the topic of cigar production: it is also about the living history of the country. Our Spain correspondent Javier Blanco Urgoiti met Guillermo León, fifth generation of the León family, and found out what his maxims are for running the company.

Numerous short stories in this issue deal with the plans, visions, assessments and of course the new products of the cigar manufacturers. Our news section provides an overview of new cigars and accessories, but also includes statements from industry leaders on current developments in the international cigar market. Read more about the winners of the 15 categories of the Cigar Trophy Awards in our current issue. In the blind tasting for the current issue, 15 of the 60 cigars smoked scored 92 points or more.
