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.

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