Epic Cigars will be adding a new vitola to its Maduro Reserva line.
The 7 1/4 x 40 lancero features the same Brazilian Ariparaca wrapper covering a cameroon binder along with Dominican piloto cubano, seco and ligero as well as Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. The new release will be rolled at the Charles Fairmorn Factory in the Dominican Republic, and joins three other vitolas in the Maduro Reserva line: Robusto (5 x 52), Double Corona (6 x 54) and Gordo (6 x 60).
According to Epic Cigars owner Dean Parsons, the Epic Maduro Reserva Lancero is a limited release, with only 5,000 total cigars produced for 2015, which will be packaged in both boxes of 25 as well as bundles. The cigars will carry a suggested retail price of $8.50 and they scheduled to ship to retailers in “early June.”
