There’s a new Larceny release coming from Sean Williams and El Primer Mundo, and it will be the first EPM cigar coming out of the Best Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, in which Williams is a partner.
This latest Larceny uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper with Nicaraguan tobacco for the binder and filler. It is being produced in three sizes each coming in 20-count boxes.
- El Primer Mundo Larceny Robusto (5 x 52, $6.90)
- El Primer Mundo Larceny Gordo (5 1/2 x 56, $7.40)
- El Primer Mundo Larceny Grande (6 x 60, $7.90)
Williams and El Primer Mundo launched the Larceny line in February 2015 as a collaborative project with Eddie Ortega that was made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory, with each brand owner making a cigar that he thought the other would like. Ortega’s blend for Williams also used a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler, while Williams crafted a cigar with an Ecuadorian oscuro wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler, with both blends coming in a 6 1/2 x 52 toro vitola. A 7 x 38 lancero vitola was added in October 2015.
As for the factory producing the cigars, Williams told halfwheel that he recently entered into a partnership with Yaxel Ortiz. The factory has also made for cigars for Ernesto Padilla, notably the Padilla 85th Anniversary de Heberto Padilla line.
The cigar began shipping in the first week of April.
Update (April 10, 2017) — The cigar has now shipped. This story was originally published on March 27.
