IPCPR 2015: La Sirena



La Sirena Cigars was showing off its newest release, the Porthole by La Sirena, which is made up of three cigars in two different blends, all of which come in 25-count boxes and are produced at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.


The first blend is composed of an Ecuadorian habano oscuro wrapper covering a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. This blend is being offered in two sizes: a Gran Toro (6 x 58, $6.90) and a Corona (5 x 44, $6.30.) Only 10,000 Gran Toros are being released, along with just 5,000 in the Corona size.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
