You’ve likely heard of Mombacho, but probably not this Mombacho.
As has been mentioned in nearly every post on this website regarding Mombacho Cigars S.A., the company sells its cigars branded as Tierra Volcán in the U.S. because of a trademark issue.
While it can sell cigars under the Mombacho name in every other country, in the U.S., only Casa Fernández can sell cigars called Mombacho.
The company, when it was previously known as Tabacalera Tropical, produced the cigar under the name Mombacho Thermonuclear Series 2006. Now that blend is back with a new name, new factory and new home.
The Mombacho Miami uses the same all Nicaraguan blend as the original cigar, but it is now being made at Casa Fernández Miami—instead of in Nicaragua—and is an exclusive to Serious Cigars of Houston, Texas.
It’s offered in three sizes: Belicoso (6 1/4 x 54, $9.95), Corona Gorda (6 1/2 x 52, $9.90) and Robusto (5 x 54, $9.15). Each size is offered in boxes of 10, instead of the 15-count boxes the company used to use for Mombacho.
The cigars will go on sale Saturday at Serious Cigars’ Texas Cigar Festival.
