Boutique Blends has released the latest addition to its Aging Room line, the M20. While the company did not reply to requests for when shipping began, several retailers have reported receiving it in recent days.
The line was announced in early June, described at the time as a new take on the company’s very popular Aging Room Small Batch M21. The M20 uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper aged over eight years with a binder and filler of all Dominican Havano grown by José “Jochy” Blanco of Tabacalera Palma and aged over 14 years. Rafael Nodal of Boutique Blends described it as a full body and full flavor cigar.
It’s a limited production release, with the total number of cigars capped at 20,000 cigars split among 2,000 ten-count boxes, and only available in one size, the 5 3/4 x 47 FFortissimo, a preferido vitola which is being box pressed for this release. MSRP is $13.95 per cigar and Nodal said it will only be made available to selected Boutique Blends preferred retailers.
Like the rest of the Aging Room line, the name for this cigar comes from the date the blends were conceived, which in this case was Monday, Jan. 21, 2014.
