MLB Cigar Ventures has begun the widespread release of its latest cigar, shipping the Imperia Aventador to its accounts around the country this week.
Michael Bellody calls it “an incredibly complex cigar” that was blended to have more spice and pepper than the other cigars in the Imperia line, which include the original Imperia and the Imperia Islero, though it’s not quite at the same level of the David P. Ehrlich Tremont. For this blend, Bellody used an Ecuadorian wrapper, Dominican binder and a filler that contains Dominican tobacco as well as Pennsylvania broadleaf, which Bellody notes delivers both subtle spice and a natural, earthy sweetness and provides a distinct blend from his other three releases.
The Imperia Aventador is being released in five vitolas, which have been consistent among the other Imperia blends:
- MLB Cigar Ventures Imperia Aventador Fundador (7 x 50/30, $15.20)
- MLB Cigar Ventures Imperia Aventador Gordo (6 x 60, $11.90)
- MLB Cigar Ventures Imperia Aventador Pita (5 1/2 x 44, $9.10)
- MLB Cigar Ventures Imperia Aventador Robusto (5 x 52, $10.60)
- MLB Cigar Ventures Imperia Aventador Toro (6 x 50, $11.30)
The Fundador vitola is coming in 10-count boxes, while the other four sizes are packed in 20-count boxes.
Bellody is once again working with Quesada Cigars to produce the cigars.
