LH Premium Cigars is releasing a cigar in partnership with “Island” Jim Robinson of Leaf by Oscar and Leaf & Bean fame, though unfortunately the cigar wasn’t on display at the show. Lavida Isla is a meshing of Nicholas Syris’ Lavida Habana brand and Robinson’s signature island lifestyle, as the name of the cigar means the island life. The cigar should be out around Oct. 1, after debuting at Robinson’s shop in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Lavida Isla

  • Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
  • Binder: Ecuador
  • Filler: Nicaragua and Peru
  • Lavida Isla (6 x 54) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
