A new Edición Regional is being launched in Croatia this weekend, as the distributor Camelot celebrates its 25th anniversary with the Ramón Allones Terra Magica Edición Regional Adriatico.
The Terra Magica comes in a Double Edmundo vitola that measures 6 1/10 inches (155 mm) in length with a 50 ring gauge. This robusto extra is also found in the Montecristo line, used for the Double Edmundo that was launched in 2013.
It is priced at 20 Euros per cigar and comes in slide-lid boxes containing ten cigars, with 6,000 boxes produced.
It is being launched as part of Camelot’s Habanos Moments event series, which were established in 2011 as a way to bring cigar enthusiasts from the region together for a weekend of food, spirits and camaraderie around cigars. Following the weekend’s events in Zagreb and Istria, the cigar will be available throughout Croatia and Slovenia.
The name was chosen as it was what the ancient Romans called Istria, the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, and which is shared by Croatia and Slovenia, as well as by Italy. Much like Cuba’s Pínar del Río region became known for its soil and ability to produce tobacco, Istria became known for being a region that produced grapes and wines, as well as fruit, olives, and olive oil.
This is the second Edicón Regional for the Adriatic region, joins the Vegas Robaina Marshal that was released in 2009, though it was originally destined to be a La Gloria Cubana release but changed after trademark issues arose with the use of the name in the region.
