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.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
