DAV Cigars is adding a limited edition lancero vitola to its Aristocrat and Mestizo lines via a new 10-count box that includes five of each cigar.

The lanceros measure 7  x 38, and keep the same blend as their regular production counterparts. For the Aristocrat line, that means an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper, Dominican olor binder and an all-Dominican filler. It is also available in a regular production 5 x 58 robusto gordo vitola. The Mestizo line uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Dominican olor binder and Dominican filler. It is also offered in four regular production vitolas, a 6 x 42 corona, 6 x 54 double toro, 6 x 60 Presidente and 5 x 52 robusto.

Both cigars are produced at Tabacalera Remembranza in Santiago, Dominican Republic.

The company is limiting production to just 200 boxes, which are referred to as the DAV Lancero Limited Edition. Each box is priced at $80 with individual cigars offered at $8 each, before taxes. Armen Caprielian of DAV Cigars told halfwheel that the cigars are currently shipping to retailers.

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.
