At the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Epic Cigars will add a new Maduro Fuerte, a limited production line using an Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper, Cameroon binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan ligero fillers.

Its a stronger version of the company’s Maduro Reserva line.

Each year the company will release 250 boxes of 10 cigars in a single size. This year that size is a 6 1/2 x 54 toro extra featuring a pigtail and shaggy foot.

It is priced at $10.50

The cigars are produced at Tabacalera Von Eiken S.R.L. in the Dominican Republic and Epic expects to launch the cigars in mid-September.
