I had started working on a Week In Smoke for this week, but as I was drinking my coffee, a blend from Counter Culture called Apollo, a thought occurred to me- I’ll bet the Puro Vintage I smoked last week would go pretty well with it. So I dropped my pen (or keyboard), grabbed one, turned on the video camera and lit it up. Changing horses midstream means posting this later than usual, but I think it turned out well. Besides, I think the La Aurora Puro Vintage 2006 Edición 111 Aniversario is a cigar that deserves a proper review anyway.
So in brief, the Puro Vintage 2006 is a Salomon featuring exclusively tobaccos harvested in 2006, and was released this year to celebrate La Aurora’s 111th anniversary. The larger size and increased difficulty of the vitola carry a pretty significant price tag ($18.60), but it turns out this edition is actually considerably less expensive (by nearly $7) than the last Puro Vintage I lit up- the 2003.
