Next week, DBL Cigars will begin shipping a massive new 7 x 64 box-pressed cigar.

It’s called La Tabla, Spanish for the board, and it uses a sun grown Arapiraca-seed wrapper grown in Mexico over a Cameroon-seed binder grown in Ecuador and three different types of filler tobaccos: corojo 99 grown by DBL in the Dominican Republic, broadleaf from Pennsylvania and fire-cured tobacco grown in the U.S. While Arapiraca is used as a wrapper on many different cigars, it’s best known as a tobacco from Brazil.

La Tabla will have an MSRP of $11.50 per cigar and comes in boxes of 24. DBL will begin shipping it on Monday, June 26. This is a regular production item.

“I love making box-pressed cigars and recognized that there weren’t many large ring gauge, box-pressed cigars in the market, so I wanted to introduce today’s smokers to a new blend in a vitola that is sure to impress,” said Francisco Almonte, founder of DBL Cigars, in a press release.

The company says the packaging, which features leather on the edge of the boxes, is designed to look like a vintage treasure box.

Like the rest of the company’s portfolio, La Tabla is made at Almonte’s Tabacalera DBL in the Dominican Republic.
