At the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Elogio’s annual limited edition, Excéntrico, will add additional sizes as it becomes a limited, but regular offering from the Wichita, Kan.-based company.
The Excéntrico No. 2, a 6 x 60 belicoso, will return. Joining it will be Serie A (9 1/2 x 47, $20), Corona Gorda (6 x 48, $12) and Rosalita (4 x 40, $8).
Nabil Sabbah told halfwheel the company is using the same tobaccos as it did in 2013, but different crop years. That means the blend will be an Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper, a Nicaraguan habano finder and five different leaves all from Nicaragua: Estelí ligero and viso, Jalapa ligero and seco and viso from Ometepe.
Production for the Serie A is limited to 2,000 cigars.
The 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show begins July 25 in Las Vegas.
