Thompson Cigar Co. has another exclusive.
This one hails from Nicaragua, a collaboration between the Tampa-based retailer, Arby Sosa’s Antillean Cigar Corp. and Felix Mesa.
It’s a new Nicaraguan-made version of 60 by Sosa, a line that the company previously sold nationally. The original cigar was made by the Reyes family in Honduras, but Felix Mesa’s El Galan factory is producing the new version.
The new cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan long fillers. The previous version used an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.
60 by Sosa is now offered in four sizes: 460 (4 x 60, $4.16), 660 (6 x 60, $5.41) and 760 (7 x 60, $5.83). Each size comes in a 12-count box.
