Tony Bellatto has announced plans to release the latest addition to La Barba Cigar Co.’s portfolio, as he will be unveiling a limited edition called One and Only at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
Bellatto isn’t disclosing the blend on the One and Only nor is he releasing any pictures of it, but he did say that it was created the Tabacalera William Ventura factory in the Dominican Republic and is being released in a 6 x 50 vitola. Both the band and box boast artwork from Jade Rivera, a prominent artist located in Miami.
Only 500 boxes of 10 cigars will be released, with single sticks carrying an MSRP of $12.50. Bellatto said that while limited in production, One and Only will be available to retailers nationwide.
La Barba Cigar Co. is distributed by Down and Back, LLC, an extension of Caldwell Cigar Co.
Update (Aug. 1, 2016) — the original version of this story identified the cigar as a 6 x 52, this was due to incorrect information supplied to halfwheel. It is a 6 x 50.
