At this year’s Texas Cigar Festival there will be a familiar cigar.

The La Flor Dominicana Texas Cigar Festival 2016 will be released once again at the annual event, which takes place this Saturday, April 22 in Houston.

It’s once again a 6 1/2 x 52 toro extra with a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, Sumatra binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. Two changes are being made: pricing is $8.50 instead of $8.70 last year and there will be 100 boxes of 10 cigars, instead of the 75 boxes released last year.

This is the fifth year that the Texas Cigar Festival has featured a release from La Flor Dominicana. Starting in 2013, the first three versions measured 6 1/2 x 50 before the cigar bumped up to a 52 ring gauge last year, while the blend has remained largely the same.

Texas Cigar Festival is hosted by Serious Cigars, which was purchased by Imperial Brands, plc—the parent of Altadis U.S.A. and JR Cigar—last year.
