Next month, fans of HVC Cigars’ La Rosa 520 blend will have a new size to enjoy.

The La Rosa 520 Encantos is a 5 5/8 x 46 version of the Nicaraguan puro. Like the first two releases—the original and Reyes—it’s made at the Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory in Estelí and uses tobacco only from AGANORSA farms in the Jalapa region.

Reinier Lorenzo, founder of HVC, told halfwheel pricing has not been finalized, but production is limited to 250 boxes of 20 cigars.

The La Rosa 520 Encantos is expected to ship in late May.
