La Sirena will be lightening its profile up a bit in the coming weeks, as the company has announced a new addition to its portfolio that uses an an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and features a bright yellow color scheme.
The La Sirena LT is being made at El Paraiso, the Plasencia-owned factory in Honduras. Underneath the wrapper is a Nicaraguan habano binder, while the filler is a blend of Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. Danny Ditkowich of La Sireana calls the cigar light to medium bodied, with a very creamy smoke texture.
It will be available in three sizes, a robusto (5 x 52, $8.80), toro (6 x 52, $9.40) and gordo (6 x 60, $9.90). Each size will come in 20-count boxes.
Ditkowich told halfwheel that he expects the cigars to arrive in the U.S. on April 3, which should have them on retail shelves by the middle of April.
