Fans of Honduran corojo tobacco will soon have a new cigar to get excited about, as JRE Tobacco. Co. has announced the upcoming release of the Aladino Corojo Reserva, a single vitola puro using the varietal.
The new cigar is coming in a 5 x 50 robusto vitola priced at $12 per cigar, and packed in uniquely shaped 20-count boxes. While the company is still finalizing the artwork, Justo Eiroa shared an image of the unfinished box with halfwheel:
The cigar will make its industry debut at next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show before heading to retailers in August. While it is an ongoing production cigar, Eiroa said that only 400 boxes are being made per month, all of which are produced at the Las Lomas Factory.
The new cigar is priced at $12 each and $240 per box, before taxes.
