Casa Fernandez has announced that it will be adding a new 6 1/2 x 50 toro vitola to its Aganorsa Leaf Maduro line, while also dropping the prices on a pair of coronas in the company’s portfolio.

The new size is being called Délire, which means “delirium” or “wild idea” in French, and which a company spokesman said represents Casa Fernández’s excitement over this particular blend. It will be priced at $8.90 per cigar and will begin shipping to retailers next Monday, Sept. 15. It comes in boxes of 15 with a MSRP of $133.50. It is the fourth size in the line, joining the 5 x 48 Ilustre, 5 x 54 Robusto Extra and 6 x 58 El Supremo.

The Casa Fernandez Aganorsa Leaf Maduro uses a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper, with 100% AGANORSA binders and fillers that come from four of the company’s farms in two growing regions in Nicaragua, and is made at the company’s factory in Miami. The line made its debut at the 2012 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

The company is also considering adding the size to its Corojo line in the near future.

Additionally, Casa Fernández has announced a pair of price reductions, as the 5 x 48 Aganorsa Leaf Maduro Illustre will be lowered from $8.90 to $8 per cigar, while the Reserva Maduro Corona will be lowered to $8 as well. The company feels this change will make its Miami-made cigars more accessible to most consumers.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
