Master Blends Cigar Co. has announced its newest release for the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

The company, best known for the Manolo Estate brand, will launch Cuban Crown, a new project created at Tabacalera El Artista in Tamboril, Dominican Republic.

Cuban Crown was rolled in 2015 using a Mexican wrapper over a propriety binder and filler the company says has never been used for a previous cigar.

It will be offered in four box-pressed sizes: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 54), Torpedo (6 x 60) and Churchill Gordo (7 x 60). All sizes come in boxes of 21 and are priced between $8-10.

“The flavor profile, the smoke, the work of art, it takes you to a place that makes you happy and brings back memories and anecdotes of the first time you had that cigar and that’s what I wanted to do with Cuban Crown,” said Luis Gutierrez, owner of Master Blends Cigar Co., in a press release.

“I wanted to be taken back to my roots, to that unforgettable moment of the first time I saw my grandfather smoking a cigar and the passion and love he had for what he called ‘La Corona Cubana,’ a private blend which he hand rolled and blended himself.”

The 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show begins July 25 in Las Vegas.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
