When Jake Wyatt Cigar Co. soft-launched its Lithium line in November 2020, it was available in a single 6 x 50 gran robusto vitola, though the company said more would be coming. Now we know what those new sizes are, and when they’ll be released.
At the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show in mid-July, the company will give the line four sizes:
- Jake Wyatt Lithium Corona (5 1/2 x 44) — $10.60 (Box of 22, $233.20)
- Jake Wyatt Lithium Robusto (5 x 50) — $10.80 (Box of 22, $237.60)
- Jake Wyatt Lithium Belicoso (6 x 52) — $10.90 (Box of 22, $239.80)
- Jake Wyatt Lithium Toro (6 x 54) — $10.90 (Box of 22, $239.80)
The Lithium’s blend features an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Dominican binder and fillers, which the company describes as medium-full in strength. The line is produced at Tabacalera JVM in the Dominican Republic, and all four sizes will be regular production offerings. It gets its name from a hope that the company has that the cigar can provide a calming effect on those who are looking to slow down and chill out a bit.
Along with the new vitolas, the Lithium line now moves to traditional boxes, as the gran robusto version was released in 10-count bundles, with only 200 of those bundles produced. Those boxes are scheduled to begin shipping in August.
The company will also be releasing a sampler at the trade show that contains each of the five blends in the company’s Gourmet Line in a 7 x 38 lancero vitola.
