As the year comes to a close, Habanos S.A. is doing what it always does, finally shipping some of the company’s most limited and expensive items. Only 2015 is proving to be a bit different, as many of the items arriving on shelves now were originally thought to show up this time last year.

That was the case with the H. Upmann No.2 Reserva Cosecha 2010 and it’s also the case with the H. Upmann Butifarra No.2 Humidor. Both Unmann releases were officially part of the company’s 2014 program, but as is so often the case with Cuban cigars, sometimes it takes a bit longer.
The Butifarra No.2 measures 7 1/8 (180mm) x 50 x 58 in a large perfecto shape. It’s part of the Réplica de Humidor Antiguo Series, a highly limited series featuring non-production violas and sold exclusively at La Casa del Habano franchises.
It’s limited to 450 humidors of 50 cigars. Pricing will vary from market to market and depending on retailer mark-up, European retailers have listed the humidor from $3,500-5,000.
The Partagás 170 is the 2015 Réplica de Humidor Antiguo. As of now there is no indication of when it is likely to arrive.
