In 2018, Maya Selva Cigars began showing off a new cigar sampler that looked like a beer can and which contained four sizes from its Villa Zamorano Reserva. That sampler was never released due to some manufacturing issues, as well as that the company wanted to explore something other than a plastic cap in its efforts to come up with a more eco-friendly solution.

At the upcoming Tobacco Plus Expo 2020 (TPE) trade show, the company will reveal the newly updated design, and instead of four cigars inside, there will be five as the company is adding the Villa Zamorano Reserva Soberano, a 6 x 60 gordo that appears in the regular Villa Zamorano line.


The sampler is priced at $32.50 and contains one each of:

  • Villa Zamorano Reserva Expreso (3 1/2 x 52)
  • Villa Zamorano Reserva Robusto (5 x 50)
  • Villa Zamorano Reserva El Gordo (5 x 56)
  • Villa Zamorano Reserva N°15 (5 1/2 x 54)
  • Villa Zamorano Reserva Soberano (6 x 60)

Maya Selva will also offer the Villa Zamorano Reserva Soberano in boxes of 25, priced at $7.50 per cigar.

The Villa Zamorano Reserva is a Honduran puro that features a wrapper from Jamastrán, while the filler is described as representing the best tobaccos from the country.

TPE 2020 takes place from Jan. 29-31 in Las Vegas. Maya Selva says the cigars are expected to begin shipping in May.

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.
