Esteban Carreras Black Cross

Named for a mark put on the doors of people who supported Esteban Carreras, an organizer who pushed back against the takeover of the tobacco fields during the Cuban revolution, the Black Cross uses Nicaraguan fillers and a habano café wrapper. It is coming in six sizes, Cervantes (5 3/4 x 46, $10), Bonita (4 x 43, $6), Corona (5 1/2 x 46, $7), Robusto (5 x 50, $7.50), Toro (6 x 50, $8) and Sixty (6 x 60, $10).

Esteban Carreras Bronze Cross

Cunningham is building on that with Bronze Cross, which uses a Sumatra wrapper instead. It is getting four sizes to start with, a Torpedo (6 1/4 x 54, $9), Toro (5 1/2 x 54, $8), Figurado (6 1/2 x 52, $12) and Sixty (6 x 60, $10).

Here’s more from Cunningham about these:

Shipping should begin in about 30 days, and there will be a Silver Cross coming out later this year, likely around Christmas.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
