Ricochet is heading to stores.

La Barba Cigars has announced that has begun shipping its latest line: Ricochet. Originally known as Primitivo, the cigar’s name was changed because of a trademark issue.

Ricochet uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper, an Indonesian binder and Dominican, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania fillers. Production is being handled by Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.

It’s offered in four sizes, each sold in 25-count boxes.

  • La Barba Ricochet 5 3/4 x 46 — $8.60 (Boxes of 25, $215)
  • La Barba Ricochet 5 x 50 — $9.60 (Boxes of 25, $240)
  • La Barba Ricochet 6 x 54 — $10.60 (Boxes of 25, $265)
  • La Barba Ricochet 6 x 60 — $11.60 (Boxes of 25, $290)

Distribution will be handled by Down & Back, LLC, which also distributes Caldwell Cigar Co., Room101 and Lost&Found, the latter of which Bellatto is a co-founder.
