A limited edition version of the La Galera Habano has landed at Papa Juan’s Cigar Room in the Bronx, N.Y.
The aptly named La Galera Bronx Edition is a 6 1/8 x 52 torpedo that uses an Ecuadorian habano hybrid wrapper, a Dominican criollo 98 binder and a filler that contains Dominican piloto cubano, Dominican criollo 98 grown in the Mao region, and Dominican criollo 98 grown in the country’s Jacagua region. The store describes it as a full-bodied smoke.
A total of 3,000 cigars were produced at Tabacalera Palma, split into boxes of 21 cigars and bundles of 25. Regardless of the packaging format, the cigar has an MSRP of $10.
The cigars have gotten a very limited release since arriving about a week ago, but will get a full release at the store’s upcoming fourth anniversary celebration on Aug. 23.
A representative from La Galera/Indianhead Cigars did not reply to a request for comment about the project.
