The Turrent family has a new cigar planned for the U.S. and European markets next month, a three-vitola line called Casa Turrent.

In a press release, the company says that this new line will “dignify our tobacco and our family,” adding that the blend has been in development for two years and shows just what Mexican tobacco, specifically the tobacco they grow, is capable of producing.

The company adds that the Casa Turrent blend delivers intense, complex, balanced and smooth flavors highlighted by notes of nuts, cocoa and wood.

The company isn’t releasing much information on the specifics of the blend, however, noting that the wrapper is a San Andrés maduro but keeping the binder and filler a secret. The Casa Turrent line will be released in three sizes: a 5 1/2 x 50 torpedo, 5 1/4 x 50 robusto and a 5 3/4 x 52 gran robusto. Each will come in 20-count boxes with single stick MSRPs between $8-9 in the U.S. and €8-9 in Europe. The company has also not disclosed where the cigar is being made, though they do own and operate a factory under the Nueva Matacapan de Tabacos S.A. de C.V. name.

The cigars are expected to reach retail shelves on both sides of the Atlantic in May 2015, though a spokesman for the company said specific plans for the U.S. release are still being finalized.

About the author

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
