MBombay Booth

MBombay Cigars was showing off two new products at its IPCPR booth this year.

The first is the new MBombay Habano blend, which incorporates an Ecuadorian habano wrapper and Ecuadorian criollo binder along with filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and Peru. The regular production line is being sold in five different vitolas, all in 20-count boxes: a Corona (5 x 43, $8.50), Robusto (4 1/2 x 48, $9.00), Belicoso (5 x 52, $10.50), Churchill (7 x 48, $11.50) and Gordo (6 x 60, $12.50.)

Secondly, MBombay is now offering five new vitolas of its Kēsara and Mōra lines packaged in cans, with the Mōra blend being slightly less expensive than the Kēsara in each of the sizes. Each blend will have the 585 (5 x 58, can of 13, $13.15/16), A (9 x 47, $17/17.39), No.4 (5.1 x 44, can of 20, $10/11), Salomon (7 x 58, can of 13, $16/17.39) and Torpedo No.2 (6 x 52, can of 15, $14/16) included in cans, with the previous three sizes still available in boxes.

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.
