The limited edition lancero in the ADVentura The Conqueror line is on its way back to store shelves, with twice the number of cigars being released compared to the first release.
Known as the Emperor’s Edition, the cigar is a 7 x 40 lancero with a slightly modified blend from the rest of the line. Because of the smaller ring gauge, the ligero in the original blend has been replaced by viso leaves, which adds a layer of specific flavor designed for the profile delivered by the vitola. As for the specifics of the blend, it is made up of an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper, Indonesian Sumatra binder, and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. All of the tobacco used in the blend has been aged for a minimum of seven years.
ADV & McKay Cigars Co. S.R.L. has produced 500 boxes of 20 cigars for the 2020 version, with production handled by Tabacalera William Ventura. Of those 500 boxes, about 350 of them will be heading to the U.S., with the other 150 or so heading to the company’s retailers in Europe and elsewhere, according to Marcel Knobel.
As with the debut release in 2019, pricing is set at $11.50 per cigar, before taxes. It is slated to arrive at U.S. retailers this week.
