Maya Selva Cigars has announced that it has added a lancero to its Cumpay line.
It measures 7 x 38 and is offered in 20-count boxes, and joins the lineup as a regular production size. Like the rest of the line, it is a Nicaraguan puro, with a wrapper from Jalapa, a binder from Estelí and filler that comes from undisclosed regions of the country.
“The new Lancero has the elegance of a unique savoir-faire,” the company said in a press release. “It´s the expression of a grand cigar that has power, finesse, and complexity. It features a complex array of aromas, with a hint of espresso, hazelnut and leather, revealed through an unusual progression where potency precedes mildness.”
The Cumpay line, which gets its name from the Tawakha Indian name for a rolled tobacco leaf, now stands at seven vitolas:
- Cumpay Short (4 x 46)
- Cumpay Robusto (4 3/4 x 50)
- Cumpay Volcán (5 x 60)
- Cumpay No.15 (5 1/2 x 54)
- Cumpay Corona (5 1/2 x 42)
- Cumpay Churchill (7 x 48)
- Cumpay Lancero (7 x 38)
Additionally, the Cumpay line is offered in two maduro options, a Robusto Maduro and Volcán Maduro.
The new size is available as of today in European markets, where it is priced at €18 ($19.63) per cigar. It is scheduled to be available in the U.S. at the end of April and will have an MSRP of $18 per cigar.
