More than 10 months after they were announced, Crux Cigars is finally shipping two additional vitolas in its Passport line.

According to posts on Crux’s Instagram page, both the Passport Half Corona (4 x 42, $5.99) and the No. 4 (4 7/8 x 47, $6.99) are in Miami and will begin shipping to retailers today. Both of the new vitolas debuted at the 2014 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, but have been delayed until now.

Like the rest of the Passport line, the Half Corona and No. 4 incorporate a habano wrapper from Ecuador, a binder from the Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua as well as filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. The two new sizes joining a trio of already released vitolas: Lancero (7 x 40, $6.99), Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 44, $5.99) and Toro (6 x 48, $7.99). All five cigars are sold in boxes of 20 and are rolled at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Nicaragua.

The Passport No. 4 features Crux’s a rounded Marblehead cap, one similar to that found on the Cuban 109 vitola, while the Half Corona includes both a covered foot and a pigtail cap.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
