JRE Tobacco Co. has announced the first vitola of what it is calling the “Our Cuban Heritage” series, the Aladino Corojo Reserva Corona No.4 Limitado.
The cigar is a 5 x 44 corona that will be priced at $10 per stick and offered in 20-count boxes. Julio Eiroa told halfwheel that while production numbers haven’t been completely finalized, he’s expecting to only be able to produce 500-600 boxes. It will be a limited, one-time only release, he said, but noted that the series will continue with three or four more sizes.
The blend is a Honduran corojo puro, with Justo Eiroa telling halfwheel that the cigar uses all higher primings, all of which has been aged for four to five years so as to make the profile smooth like the rest of the Reserva line.
He said the company is aiming to have the cigars on store shelves in November.
