Córdoba & Morales to Release Clave Cubana Etiqueta Blanca Short Robusto BP at IPCPR 2016

Null

Córdoba & Morales will be adding to its Clave Cubana Etiqueta Blanca line at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, as the company will debut the Clave Cubana Etiqueta Blanca Short Robusto BP.

If the name sounds familiar, in 2014 the company added the Etiquette Blanca, a release of three vitolas that uses a five-year-old Mexican San Andrés wrapper over Nicaraguan tobacco with a binder from Jalapa and fillers from Estelí (ligero), Jalapa (seco) and Ometepe (viso). The line debuted in three sizes, Robusto Extra (5 1/2 x 52, $9.80), Toro (6 x 54, $10.50) and Toro Grande (6 x 60, $11.20), with 1,000 20-count boxes produced and split up amongst the three vitolas.

The Clave Cubana Etiqueta Blanca Short Robusto BP measures 4 1⁄2 x 52 cigar and uses the same blend as the original release. It will come in 21-count boxes, with MSRPs of $9 per cigar and $189 per box.

The new size is a regular production addition to the company’s portfolio, and while the company has not yet confirmed the factory that is making the cigar, the original sizes were made at American Caribbean Tobacco S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Córdoba & Morales will also be unveiling the Platino Sumatra: Reposado en Cedro Toro at the show, while showing off Finca Santa Fe, which shipped in May.

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.
