Esteban Disla’s Guáimaro line will be getting a new size at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
Skip Martin of Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A., where Disla is both a partner and factory manager, showed off a new 4 x 50 size of the Guáimaro. This will be the fourth vitola for the line, which uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Brazilian Arapiraca Castaño binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
It will be priced at $8 and is sold in boxes of 20. Pospiech, Inc. expects to begin shipping the cigar immediately after the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29 in Las Vegas.
Guáimaro is a nickname given to Disla by Sergio Cuevas, who taught Disla about tobacco and ultimately brought him to work in Nicaragua at Cuevas’ then factory. Disla would rise to the manager of Latin Cigars S.A., now known as STG Estelí, before leaving and gaining notoriety at NicaSueño, the factory behind RoMa Craft Tobac.
This is the fourth size for Guáimaro, which was introduced in late 2016.
While NicaSueño is best known for its production of RoMa Craft Tobac, Guáimaro is actually distributed in the U.S. by Pospiech Inc., the same company that distributes Powstanie, Fable, FQ and Chogüí.
