Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. has announced that it will be adding a lancero vitola to its Lithium line at the 2022 Tobacco Plus Expo happening later this month.

The 7 x 38 vitola has been seen before in very limited quantities as a creation for the Jake Wyatt team, but now it is getting its widespread release and will be a regular production addition. Like the rest of the line it uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Dominican binder and filler, and is produced at Tabacalera JVM in the Dominican Republic. It will be offered in 22-count boxes, with individual cigars having an MSRP of $11.

It becomes the fifth size in the line:

  • Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. Lithium Robusto (5 x 50)
  • Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. Lithium Corona (5 1/2 x 44)
  • Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. Lithium Belicoso (6 x 52)
  • Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. Lithium Toro (6 x 54)
  • Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. Lithium Lancero (7 x 38)

“We’re always looking to push the boundaries and ignite possibilities with new vitolas,” said Neil Garcia, co-owner of Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. via a press release. “The Lithium Lancero demonstrates true innovation while remaining true to our brand,” he added.

The new size is scheduled to begin shipping in February.

The Lithium line debuted in November 2020 in a limited production 6 x 50 gran robusto vitola. At the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show, the company gave the line its full release, adding the other four vitolas. This is also the latest lancero for the company, as in September 2021, the company added a lancero vitola to its Gourmet Line, which includes the Appendix II, Fourth Dimension, Herbert Spencer, Lucid Interval and U.S.I.R. lines.

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
