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.

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.
