Initially released exclusively for clientele from the Dominican Republic, La Aurora ADN Dominicano is now available in the USA! Spanish for Dominican DNA, the ADN Dominicano features a tobacco leaf known as Andullo that uses an aging process that is unique to the Dominican Republic.
While most tobacco leaves are aged by hanging from rafters before being placed in large piles known as pilones, Andullo leaves are harvested and placed in long palm seed pods known as Yaguas and rotated throughout the aging process. The ADN Dominicano truly has the Dominican Republic in its DNA.
A veiny Dominican wrapper makes a first impression, the wrapper hides a Cameroonian binder and a filler made of a blend of Andullo, Nicaraguan, Dominican Cibao, and Pennsylvania tobaccos. The result is a medium to full bodied smoke with notes of Cinnamon, spice, cherry, toast, fruit and black pepper.
From the blend to the aging process to the Dominican flag on the ring, this is truly a loving and enjoyable tribute to the Dominican Republic.
