As you may recall, Imperia began shipping late last fall; it uses a high-priming Dominican HVA wrapper along with Nicaraguan and Dominican binder and filler, with production handled by The Quesada Factory in the Dominican Republic. The line is offered in four sizes, the Pita (5 1/2 x 44, $7.98), Robusto (5 x 52, $8.30), Toro (6 x 50, $8.70) and Gordo (6 x 60, $9.40). Each size comes in 20-count boxes.
While Bellody has been focusing much of his attention towards retailers in the northeastern U.S. since that is where he is based, he mentioned that a number of stores from around the country have been stopping by the booth and showing interest, which could have it coming to more stores soon.
