In addition to two new lines and a Corona, there will be another new addition for the H.R. cigars from Hirochi Robaina, and it’s a big one.

Spence Drake, head of White Hat Distribution which distributes the H.R. lines, told halfwheel the company will add an A, formally known as Gran Corona, a 9 1/4 x 47 version of the original H.R. Habano line.

Pricing is not finalized, but two-packs of the As are expected to cost around $70.

The H.R. Habano debuted in 2014. It uses an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper over a binder from Jalapa, Nicaragua and Nicaraguan fillers.

This will be the sixth size for the line.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
