The Veritas booth was tucked away towards the back of the show, but in a fairly visible location along an aisle. While they had plenty of cigars to show off, they only had one new line being released this year.
The Three Blends line features three wrappers – a sun grown Ecuadorian Habano, a Connecticut and a habano maduro – over a Mexican San Andrés binder and Nicaraguan filler including Jalapa Ometepe, Condega and Estelí.
The cigar is an interesting shape, with the size being called a Half Box Press Half Corona. If you’re slightly confused the picture above might help some, but essentially the bottom half of the cigar is box pressed, while the top half is round.
This will come in boxes of nine, it will retail for $12 a cigar.
