Gran Habano has expanded its popular Corojo #5 line with a new size that is now arriving at retail, the 7 x 70 Grandioso, while the entire line is getting an update as far as its packaging and presentation.
Billed as the fullest bodied cigar in the Gran Habano portfolio, the Corojo #5 uses Nicaraguan corojo tobacco for both the wrapper and binder, with the filler coming from Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The new size becomes the 11th in the line and is the biggest to date, with the 4 1/2 x 40 Lunch Break vitola the smallest.
As part of an overhaul of several lines, Gran Habano is freshening up the Corojo #5’s presentation, going to footbands as well as featuring the year of production on the box. The company has also announced changes to the G.A.R. Red and Gran Reserva #5 2011 lines, while confirming that it won’t be increasing prices to any of its lines this year.
The new size comes with an MSRP of $8.86 per stick, before taxes, with a 20-count box costing $177.20.
Gran Habano recently announced that its S.T.K. ZULU ZULU Mas Paz Edition has begun shipping.
