NyB Cigars has released a pair of limited edition lines into the European market: the Nicarao Especial Reserva 2014 and La Ley Reserva 2015.
The Nicarao Especial Reserva 2014 is being released in a single vitola, a 5 x 52 robusto, with production limited to 350 numbered boxes of 21 cigars, a total run of 7,350 cigars.
The La Ley Reserva 2015 gets two sizes; the Exquisitos measures 4 7/8 x 48 and is limited to 250 boxes of 21 cigars, while the Laguito 6 measures 6 1/2 x 56 and gets 500 boxes of 21 cigars, productions of 5,250 and 10,500 cigars, respectively.
Both lines have been aging for several years, first as unrolled leaves for a period of two to three years, then as finished cigars for an additional year. The company is not disclosing the blend for either cigar nor where the cigars are being produced. Both will be single production releases with no further cigars made for either line.
Didier Houvenhagel, founder of NyB Cigars, called the Reserva projects a passion inside a passion in a press release. “It is amazing to see how certain cigars gain quality with time and sometimes the phenomenon can be tasted after a few years only,” he said.
Houvenhagel said that he has distributors in Belgium, France, Holland, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, Sweden, and Switzerland currently offering the lines to retailers in those countries, with some allotments having already sold out. The company declined to announce pricing, citing that due to taxes, it can vary from country to country.
