Gran Habano’s Persian King line will get a new addition in the form of La Contra, a fully finished cigar wrapped in another leaf of tobacco.

Persian King La Contra will be offered in Natural and Maduro versions, both Nicaraguan puros with a piece of Connecticut tobacco placed at the foot and twisted.

  • Persian King La Contra Natural/Maduro Rajah (6 x 50) — $6 (Box of 50, $300)
  • Persian King La Contra Natural/Maduro Tiger (6 x 60) — $7 (Box of 50, $350)

Gran Habano says the La Contra is stronger than the original Persian King. It is produced by Gran Habano in Danlí, Honduras.

La Contra will debut at the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29 in Las Vegas, and begin shipping to retailers in August.
