Aging Room will be releasing a new cigar next month, as the company has announced Pura Cepa, a name that means pure bred in Spanish.
The new line is a Nicaraguan puro using tobacco from each of the country’s main growing regions, Ometepe, Jalapa, Condega and Estelí. It will be released in three sizes, each presented in 20-count boxes:
- Aging Room Small Batch Puro Cepa Rondo (5 x 50)
- Aging Room Small Batch Puro Cepa Mezzo (6 x 54)
- Aging Room Small Batch Puro Cepa Grande (6 1/2 x 56)
A press release from Altadis U.S.A. stated that the retail prices will be from $12.50 to $13.50 per cigar, with shipping to retail beginning in May 2018. It is being made by Plasencia Cigars S.A. and distributed by Altadis U.S.A., which has distributed Boutique Blends’ portfolio since May 2017.
Rafael Nodal has not yet returned an email sent seeking details about the new line or confirming the accuracy of the report.
