LUJ Luxury Cigars has announced plans to release the third installment of its Edida line next week, a line that traces back to its first release 2011 with a subsequent release in 2013. This time however, the Edida is getting a new size, which will be the only one released in this installment.

Luj Oluyeba told halfwheel that he will begin shipping a 5 1/2 x 52 robusto on March 23, with the cigar priced at $9 per stick before taxes and packed in 20-count boxes. Tabcalera El Artista in the Dominican Republic is manufacturing the cigar, which uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Pennsylvania, Colombia, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

The line has previously been released in three sizes, a Toro (6 1/2 x 54), Robusto (5 1/2 x 54) and Corona (6 x 46). Oluyeba said that production numbers of this latest release will remain uncapped, as the Edida is returning to his portfolio as a core production line.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
