Gran Habano has shipped its new Elegance Collection, also known as La Colección de Elegancia, which includes three new, smaller sizes of its popular Corojo #5 line, as well as two existing smaller ring gauge sizes.

Gran Habano Corojo 5 Elegance Sampler feature

Inside each of the 1,000 samplers are (going clockwise from the top right) a Corona (6 x 44), Petite Corona (5 1/2 x 42), Figurado (5 x 48), Lunch Break (4 1/2 x 40) and a Lancero (7 1/2 x 38). This is the first time that the Corona, Petit Corona and Figurado have been released, and are a preview of a limited production launch of the vitolas that will be on stores later this summer. A company spokesperson told halfwheel that these sizes will help consumers experience the Corojo #5 blend “the way it was intended to be.”

Gran Habano will be releasing 1,000 boxes of 20 cigars in those sizes, which are some of the smaller vitolas in the Corojo #5 line. Pricing has not yet been announced by the company on those new sizes. Production is being handled at the company’s G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas S.A. factory in Honduras.

The Elegance Collection has an MSRP of $280.

Update (May 5, 2016) — While the sampler had previously been referred to as the Elegance Collection, an email announcing the set’s release called it La Colección de Elegancia. The following images were also released:

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
