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.
