It’s a good day for fans of Altadis U.S.A.’s RyJ line and smaller ring gauges, as today the company announced the addition of a 5 1/2 x 44 corona vitola.
The RyJ is a Nicaraguan puro that was introduced in October 2013. It features a double binder of Nicaraguan Jalapa and Estelí tobaccos and a blend of Nicaraguan Jalapa, Estelí and La Mia fillers.
