HVC’s San Isidro line will be getting its third size later this spring.
Company founder Reinier Lorenzo has shown off pictures of the San Isidro Divinos, a new 6 1/4 x 48 parejo vitola. Lorenzo told halfwheel pricing is not finalized, but he hopes to have the cigar in the market by late April.
The San Isidro line uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Like most of HVC’s cigars, it is made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The name San Isidro references a neighborhood in Old Havana that was made famous by Alberto Yarini, a Cuban pimp who worked there and was killed by gunfire from a rival pimp’s gang in 1910.
