Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar and the associated Empire Social Lounge, both in Miami, will be the exclusive home for the H.R. Signature Corona Gorda.

The 5 1/2 x 46 size has previously not been offered for sale, though it has been in production since 2016.

“The Corona Gorda is one of my and Hirochi (Robaina’s) favorite vitolas. When we were adding sizes to the line in 2016, the Corona Gorda was a must,” said Spence Drake, founder of La Familia Robaina, in a press release. “Since then, we have often carried that cigar around as our personal smoke. When we offered an exclusive size to Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar, Shiah Goldberg jumped at the chance to try the H.R. Signature blend in the Corona Gorda vitola as it is his preferred size.”

It’s offered in boxes of 10, priced at $134.99.

The H.R. Signature uses an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It is made at the La Corona Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
