The newest creation from La Sirena started shipping to retailers earlier this week and has already begun showing up on store shelves. Oceano by La Sirena is being made at the Quesada factory in the Dominican Republic, using a Dominican Habano vuelta arriba wrapper, Dominican criollo binder and Dominican criollo and Nicaraguan fillers.
Oceano by La Sirena is offered in five vitolas: Arctic (4 3/4 x 38/58/44), Southern (5 x 43), Indian 5 1/2 x 50), Atlantic (7 x 52) and Pacific (6 x 65). Pricing is set between $8.50 and $11. The Arctic vitola is a limited production vitola, with just 500 boxes of 20 being produced, while the other four sizes are ongoing production.
The line was announced in mid-July, just prior to the 2014 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.
