La Sirena is in the final stages of finalizing its next release, and the decision may well be made on the floor of the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
The company has been working on a new limited edition lancero with Erik Espinosa and his La Zona Cigar Factory for several months, but with FDA regulations looming large on the cigar industry, a decision needs to be made soon to get the final product to market ahead of the Aug. 8 deadline.
What is known is that the new cigar will be slightly thicker than normal lancero, currently slated to be box-pressed and in a 7 x 44 vitola. It will be a Nicaraguan puro similar to that of the La Sirena core line, which uses a habano oscuro wrapper.
Danny Ditkowich said it will be his daughter Arielle that will make the final decision on the cigar, as it’s ultimately her brand. Arielle Ditkowich is known as the face of La Sirena, appearing in the brand’s advertisements and marketing materials.
Once the final specifications are confirmed, there will be 100 20-count boxes produced and available for sale at the show, which runs July 25-28 in Las Vegas, Nev. A full release date has not yet been confirmed.
