After more than a year of wait, the Emilio Mia Dora is finally headed to shelves.

Gary Griffith of Emilio Cigars announced yesterday that the A.J. Fernandez-made cigar was on its way to retailers. Some details have changed since it was shown off at the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July. While the 5 1/4 x 44 Coronita will remain in 40-count boxes, the Robusto (5 x 50) and Toro (6 x 50) will now be in 21-count boxes.

The cigar is named after the love of Griffith’s wife, Dora, while the branding pays tribute to Ascoli Piceno, the town Italy where Dora’s family is from.
