On Sept. 30, the Córdoba & Morales Nica Reaper will go on sale during a release party at Cigar Hustler in Deltona, Fla.

The cigar is a 6 x 52 toro with a unique cap and a closed foot. It is made entirely of ligero tobaccos, which means it should be strong, though the company is not disclosing the country of origin. Each cigar has an MSRP of $15 and it is limited to 500 boxes of 12 cigars.

“I’ve been playing with the idea of making an all ligero cigar for years,” said Azarias Mustafa, owner of Córdoba & Morales, in a press release. “The hardest part was finding the right combination of tobacco to create a powerhouse cigar with complexity. Everybody knows you can make a very bold cigar. The hard part is making something that isn’t one-dimensional in flavor with such a high level of strength.”

The cigars will be offered to other retailers following the release at Cigar Hustler.
