A third size is coming to the LUJ Chateau line, as company founder Luj Oluyeba has confirmed to halfwheel that he will be adding a new 5 x 50 robusto vitola.

The new size will debut at the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show next week and will come priced at $11 per cigar.

The company doesn’t disclose details about the cigar’s components, but Oluyeba calls it a full flavored offering. It was prominently featured at last year’s trade show where it was available in two sizes, Corona (6 x 46, $11.50) and Toro (6 x 54, $13).

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

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.
