HVC’s Black Friday release is back for another year.

The Nicaraguan puro is released in honor of the American shopping tradition that takes place on the day after Thanksgiving.

This year’s release measures 6 3/4 x 48—a quarter-inch longer than last year’s version—and uses a Nicaraguan corojo 99 wrapper, a binder from AGANORSA’s La Mia farm in Jalapa and fillers from its Chilamate farm.

Pricing is set at $5.90, 50 cents more than last year, and production is limited to 100 boxes of 50.

Production is being handled by Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.
