Just about a year ago, José Blanco confirmed to halfwheel that he was working with Mexican San Andrés for a maduro version of his Señorial line, and this year he will be bringing it to the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show.

Emma Viktorsson, the marketing director for Las Cumbres Tabaco, recently posted to her Facebook page that the Señorial Maduro Natural will indeed be at the trade show and will begin shipping to retailers shortly after the trade show concludes on July 21.

The new line will be available in four sizes, a Lonsdale Refinado (6 1/2 x 44, MSRP $7.50), Robusto Digno (5 1/2 x 50, $8.50), Toro Coloso (6 X 54, $9) and Opulento (6 x 60, $10). Underneath the new wrapper is a Dominican Piloto Cubano binder and a filler blend of Dominican Piloto Cubano and Dominican Criollo ’98.

Senorial Lancero

Blanco will also be delivering on another cigar he’s been teasing for a year or so, the Señorial Lancero. The 7 x 38 vitola will have an MSRP of $9 when it hits shelves.


An earlier version of this story identified the Señorial Lancero as being 7 1/2 inches long when it is seven inches in length.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
