On March 11, 2011, an 8.9-magnitude
earthquake hit the island of Japan -- the biggest earthquake in Japanese
official record. The tsunami that followed caused unprecedented devastation on
a level unseen by the Japanese people since War World II.
The voices and images of desperation have
struck deeply in the hearts and souls of the Dominican people whom, for many
decades, have built a close bond with Japan. La Aurora Cigar Factory has
echoed the expressions of solidarity of its employees and suppliers, and is
glad to announce the creation of a special edition cigar to help the
humanitarian response to this disaster. “We are very pleased to lay our helping
hand to our brothers of Japan by supporting the humanitarian assistance to this
great nation,” says Guillermo Leon, President of La Aurora. “When hurricanes
have struck the Dominican Republic, Japan was there for us,” Leon added.
Proceeds from the sales of this cigar will be donated to the Japan Earthquake
and Tsunami Relief fund through JAPAN TOBACCO IMEX CO. LTD.
The cigar named “Para Japón” or “For
Japan” is a 5” x 50, medium to full bodied vitola, made with selected premium
tobacco leaves. These cigars have been aged during three years and its blend is
something really unique with an exquisite Nicaraguan wrapper. Its package of 25
Sumo Robustos is decorated with special artwork by Mario Takeyama and Dan
Reeve, the design team of CigarExplorer.com. Being involved in this project was
important and personal to Cigar Explorer, as founder Mario is a native of Japan
and still has many friends and family living there.
The “Para Japón” cigar will be available thru
La Aurora distributors on April.
For US market, The “Para Japón” cigar will be distributed by Miami Cigar & Company, La Aurora US Exclusive Distributor.
