Hispaniola Cigars has released a new vitola to four of its lines, and while the releases share a common name, they are four different sizes.
A No. 2 vitola has been added to the Tres Carabelas, El Trabuco 1844, Cristobol Colon 1492 and Los Conquistadores lines, which company owner Hugo Melo said “deliver(s) on the promise of intrinsically connecting the sensation produced by timing the appropriate needed flavors and strength of the cigar during the smoking experience,” via a press release.
In the Tres Carabelas line, the No. 2 is a 5 1/4 x 52 vitola. The El Trabuco 1844 No. 2 measures 5 x 52, while the Cristobal Colon 1492 No. 2 is the longest of the bunch at 5 1/2 x 52. Melo went with a slightly bigger ring gauge for the Los Conquistadores No. 2, which measures 5 1/2 x 56.
Cigars in the line retail for between $9 to $11 per cigar. Hispaniola Cigars are made at the Villa Nisao Del Paraiso estate.
Shipping was scheduled to begin on June 1, and the cigars will also be on display in Hispaniola Cigars’ booth at the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.
