La Sirena was showing off a couple of items during the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

Two of its new ventures include the longest vitola in one of its most popular lines and the re-release of a blend that debuted in 2016.

La Sirena LT Double Corona

The La Sirena LT gets its fourth—and longest—size, a double corona. The LT is designed to be the mellowest of the company’s portfolio, but don’t confuse it for a bland Connecticut, as the Nicaraguan habano binder adds some punch, while the three-country filler blend adds a good amount of depth and complexity.

  • Wrapper: Ecuador (Connecticut)
  • Binder: Nicaragua (Habano)
  • Filler: Dominican Republic, Honduras & Nicaragua
  • La Sirena LT Double Corona (7 1/2 x 52) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)

Production: Regular Production

Launch Date: July 2018

La Sirena Box Pressed Lancero

The La Sirena Box Pressed Lancero is back for a second limited edition run, with all the details remaining the same as the initial batch that was produced in 2016, including Erik Espinosa’s La Zona Cigar Factory handling production.

  • Wrapper: Nicaragua (Habano Oscuro)
  • Binder: Nicaragua (Criollo)
  • Filler: Nicaragua (Jalapa and Condega)
  • La Sirena Box Pressed Lancero (7 x 42) — $12 (Boxes of 10, $120)

Production: 100 Boxes of 10 Cigars (1,000 Total Cigars)

Launch Date: June 2018

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
