Gran Habano has shared with halfwheel plans for two new lines that will debut in the summer of 2016 around the time of the annual IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, as well as plans for three new, smaller sizes of its popular Corojo #5 line.

The company has confirmed plans to release Los Tres Reyes Magos, or The Three Kings, a culebra that will feature 7 x 32 versions of the company’s Gran Habano Connecticut #1, Maduro #3 and Corojo #5 cigars woven together into the unique shape at the company’s G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas S.A. factory in Honduras. Each box will contain 10 of the culebras, with pricing and a formal release date still to be announced, though they are scheduled to be featured and available at the show.

Additionally, the company will be releasing La Conquista, a full-bodied cigar that uses a Nicaraguan wrapper and binder along with filler from Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Columbia, which also is being manufactured in Honduras. The profile is described as spicy and peppery with a long, leathery finish, and packaging that the company calls traditional and very different from other Gran Habano products. Sizes, pricing and a formal release date are still being finalized.

Gran Habano has already announced several bits of news pertaining to its Corojo #5 line; in February the company will release The Elegance Collection by Gran Habano, a 25-count sampler featuring five smaller ring gauge vitolas: 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), the first three of which are new vitolas for the line.

The three new sizes will then be released as a limited production just ahead of the trade show, with 1,000 boxes of the corona, petite corona and figurado being released, each containing 20 cigars.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
