Marrero Cigars has shipped the latest additions to its portfolio this week, three new vitolas in its Fuerte Box Pressed line and two in its Tico Pigtail line.
In the Marrero Cigars Fuerte Box Pressed line, a Gran Torpedo (6 1/2 x 54, $7.50), Gran Toro Box Press (6 1/2 x 54, $7.80) and Toro Grande (6 x 60, $7.90) have been added, all coming in 20-count boxes. They join the original Gran Robusto Box Press (5 1/2 x 54, $7.20). The full-bodied blend is made with an Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper, Dominican binder and a proprietary filler that uses Costa Rican tobacco.
Two new sizes have been added to the Marrero Cigars Tico Pigtail line, a lancero (7 1/2 40, $7) that comes in 24-count boxes and robusto (5 x 52, $6.30) that comes in 20-count boxes. They join the original toro (6 1/2 x 56, $7.40) and use a blend of an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Indonesian binder and a proprietary filler blend highlighted by Costa Rican tobacco, which the company says results in a medium body cigar.
All of the cigars began shipping on Jan. 4 and are regular production additions, made in Costa Rica at the Tabacos de la Cordillera factory.
