Altadis U.S.A. is shipping the Yargüera H. Upmann, a new three-vitola line that features a new proprietary hybrid from the Yargüera farm in Honduras. The strand is a combination of a type of tobacco from the 1960s mixed with criollo 98.

The new cigar uses 2013 tapado shade wrapper from Yargüera, a criollo 98 binder and sun grown Yargüera and criollo 98 fillers. It is rolled at Altadis’ Flor de Copan factory in Honduras.

Yargüera H. Upmann is offered in Torbusto (5 1/2 x 56, $9.25), Toro (6 x 54, $8.75) and Robusto (5 x 52, $8.50). Each size comes in boxes of 18.
