Sun Sep 16 2018, 05:00 PM - 08:00 PM

Come and join Manuel Inoa, Master Blender at La Aurora Cigars in the Dominican Republic, for an exclusive cigar blending seminar. Learn about the history of tobacco, different seed varieties, dfferent taste sensations and flavor components that go into the blending of the final product.

The Venue:
Manuel Inoa's presentation will begin promptly at 5 PM; gates will open at 4:30 PM. Please be on time. Worden's Market and Deli is closing off its private parking lot on the southside of the building for this event. Awning, tables, and chairs will be provided for guests to sit, relax, and listen to the presentation while enjoying the provided cigars.

About the ADN Cigars:
La Aurora ADN Dominicano cigars is an age-old Dominican fermentation process that forgoes the usual building and turning of tobacco hands in pilons; instead, a very hard-to-grow strain of tobacco called 'Andullo' is wrapped like a rope in palm or yucca leaves (called 'yaguas') to age. A full leaf of Andullo is used in the blend of every ADN Domincano cigar, whose name is Spanish for 'Dominican DNA.'

And the Dominican roots on this La Aurora run deep: the Andullo is matched with Dominican long fillers from the Cibao Valley, plus Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania tobaccos; the binder is Cameroon, then it's back to Cibao for the Dominican-grown wrapper. Medium-full and stunningly complex, La Aurora ADN Dominicano cigars are Dominican tobacco culture at its finest, right down to the most elemental level.
