When it was announced that Grace Sotolongo would be leaving CLE Cigar Company, many questioned what would happen to the Hechicera Maduro, the second line from Sotolongo and CLE that had been introduced just weeks before at the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show.

Turns out, it’s now shipping.

After Sotolongo’s departure, Christian Eiroa told halfwheel the Hechicera Maduro would ship and last week that began happening according to Eiroa. 

The line is offered in four sizes: Corona Prensada (5 1/2 x 44), Robusto (4 1/2 x 50), Toro (6 x 52) and Gigante (6 x 60) with pricing set between $6.45 and $9.45. This cigar uses Nicaraguan fillers and a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper.
