For its second year at the trade show Royal Gold has also moved on to a much larger booth design, part of the reason being because Corporación Cigar Export is in the booth as well.
Royal Gold’s Nirvana Cameroon Selectiondidn’t get any new sizes, though the packaging was updated and the blend now has a different priming version of the Cameroon wrapper.
Casino Gold did get a new size in the HRS line – a 7 x 70 cigar named The Whale. This is the sixth and largest size for the HRS line and the blend will remain the same according to Alex Goldman. The blend is a habano rosado wrapper from the Jalapa region of Nicaragua, a Cameroon binder and three different Nicaraguan fillers. MSRP is set at $8.50 per cigar or $127.50 for a box of 15.
