La Sirena Cigars is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month with the release of a new limited edition cigar, the La Sirena Aniversario Especial.
The blend is highlighted by a 10-year-old Mexican San Andrés negro wrapper sourced from the Turrent family. It sits atop a Mexican San Andrés criollo 98 binder and a filler blend that includes tobaccos from Mexico, Brazil, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
The La Sirena Aniversario Especial is being released in a single 5 3/4 x 54 robusto extra vitola that gets a soft box-press and wears a new band design featuring a mermaid with the letters AFD in her tail, a nod to Arielle Ditkowich’s initials.
It is priced at $19 per cigar and is made at Nueva Matacapan de Tabacos S.A. de C.V., Casa Turrent’s factory in San Andrés, Mexico. The company is releasing just 100 purple-hued, 10-count boxes, though Danny Ditkowich told halfwheel that there is enough tobacco to produce another 100 boxes, depending on demand.
The cigar will get a soft launch during a May 23 event at Ditkowich’s Tobacco Plaza in Great Neck, N.Y., with a limited amount shipping to retailers shortly after that. La Sirena will also have the cigar available to order at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
