Bombay Tabak, the company behind the MBombay line of cigars, has announced its latest release: M.Esteli.

While the name references the Nicaraguan city famous for producing cigars, the M.Esteli is made in Costa Rica with tobaccos from three countries. The habano 2000 wrapper comes from the company’s farm in Ventanas, Ecuador. The binder is from the Dominican Republic and sits over fillers from Nicaragua as well as Dominican HVA and Piloto Cubano.

It is offered in three sizes.

  • M.Esteli Robusto (5 x 54) — $6.95 (Bundle of 30, $208.50)
  • M.Esteli Toro (6 x 54) — $7.95 (Bundle of 30, $238.50)
  • M.Esteli Torpedo (6 x 54) — $7.95 (Bundle of 30, $238.50)

The M.Esteli will debut at this week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and is expected to begin shipping the last week of July.

Update (Aug. 30, 2019) — The original version of this post indicated the M.Esteli binder is from Nicaragua, it is from the Dominican Republic.
