Next month, Stogie Road Cigars will be releasing a limited edition lancero to its Edición XXXV line, which debuted in March.
Like the original 6 1/2 x 52 toro, the lancero comes dressed in a barber pole wrapper made from Ecuadorian habano maduro and Ecuadorian Connecticut shade leaves. Underneath that is a Honduran habano binder and fillers from Honduras’ Copan region and ligero from Nicaragua’s Jalapa region.
It will be priced at $10 per cigar and offered in 10-count boxes, with 500 boxes being produced at the Tabacalera Kafie factory in Danlí, Honduras.
“I have always loved the lancero vitola; it’s classic and full of flavor,” said Kerry Horney of Stogie Road Cigars. “This release truly represents my passion. I believe that the quality of tobacco and the blend can only be appreciated and realized if the cigar has impeccable construction.”
The company is currently taking orders for the cigar, with delivery slated for mid-November.
Shortly after this article was published, halfwheel was informed that the company has changed its name from El Viajante to Stogie Road Cigars.
