The Saga Short Tales Tomo VII – Tales of the Land: Navarrete will be the seventh cigar in De Los Reyes’ Saga Short Tales Series.

The 5 x 52 box-pressed robust uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper over a Dominican San Vicente binder and three different Domincan fillers: criollo 98, HVA and piloto cubano. The name refers to Navarette—also known as Bisonó—a Dominican town located about 15 miles northwest of Santiago de los Caballeros, the heart of the Dominican cigar industry. Navarette is the place where the Reyes family harvested its first crop of piloto cubano tobaccos.

The MSRP is set at $9.30 per cigar.

Like the rest of the releases in the series, it is packaged in boxes that are designed to look like old books. Inside the box—which opens like a bound book, are the cigars and actual pages.

It will debut on June 30 at LG Cigar Club in San Jose, Calif., and will ship to retailers nationwide in September.

This is the seventh release for the series, the first new addition since 2018.
