Yesterday, Miami Cigar & Co., La Aurora’s U.S. distributor, confirmed the long-rumored 15 Minute Break size would be coming to the American market in December. We first reported of the 3 1/2 x 42 size in early July when there was some belief it might appear at IPCPR. The size has already appeared in the international market in the 1495 blend and there is likely to be a 107 blend at some point.
While the cigar’s name is “15 Minute Break,” the initial release will read, “15 Minutes Break.”
At this time, Miami Cigar & Co. says there is no timetable for other version of the size in the U.S. market.
Earlier this year, there were rumors of an Ambassador size, something that has not been released as of yet.
