La Flor Dominicana has confirmed that its Mysterioso Collector’s Edition cigar, which debuted late in 2013, will make a repeat appearance at the end of 2014.
On its Facebook page Wednesday, the company said that “Our 1st run of the Mysterioso Collector’s Edition is nearing its end. Now is the time to stock up! They’ll be back again at the end of the year.”
Tony Gomez told halfwheel that while the 7 x 55 vitola for the 2014 edition won’t change, the company is looking at making a few small variations, though wouldn’t specify what those are. “Price, production and blend should remain roughly the same,” he noted.
The 2013 release was a take on the company’s existing Mysterio line, which was known both for its perfecto shape and a contrasting foot and cap—the natural wrapper version gets an oscuro top and bottom while the oscuro version has natural ends. For the Mysterioso, La Flor Dominicana used strips of Ecuadoran Connecticut tobacco to create a pattern that ran up the cigar and visually stood out against the Connecticut broadleaf oscuro background.
Production for the 2013 edition was based on the number of orders received, and Gomez said they ended up producing 1,300 of the five-count boxes, for a total run of 6,500 cigars.
The La Flor Dominicana Mysterioso Collector’s 2013 was reviewed on halfwheel in December 2013.
