D’Crossier is expanding its Golden Blend line with the new Golden Blend Reserva, set to begin shipping later this month.

It’s a three-size line that uses an Ecuadorian habano claro wrapper over fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The company says that the fillers have been aged for seven years, while the wrappers were aged for a year in Spanish cedar boxes.

  • D’Crossier Golden Blend Reserva Cañonazo (6 x 52) — $20 (Box of 25, $500)
  • D’Crossier Golden Blend Reserva Taino (5 1/2 x 54) — $22 (Box of 25, $550)
  • D’Crossier Golden Blend Reserva Magnum (6 1/2 x 56) — $24 (Box of 25, $600)

While the line is not a limited edition, the first 2,000 boxes will be individually numbered. After those are produced, the company will continue to make the cigars. Only 250 boxes are being released this year with shipping set to begin on Dec. 28. Of note, the company uses a unique cellophane method where it punches a piece out of the top of the cellophane to allow for airflow while the cigar is still packed in cellophane.

The blend is being dedicated to Isaias Santana Crossier, the late father of Isaias Santana Diaz of D’Crossier. It is produced at Tabacos de Costa Rica.

Update (Dec. 28, 2020) — The company announced that the line has begun shipping.
