Bombay Tobak, the brand behind MBombay, has announced Mayura, a new extension for its MQBA line, which debuted at last year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
While last year’s debut of the MQBA line was an Ecuadorian puro, this extension branches out the tobacco a bit. The line is still highlighted by an Ecuadorian-grown HVA wrapper and binder grown on the company’s farm, while the filler comes from Paraguay, Peru and Nicaragua. The cigars are produced at the Tabacos de Costa Rica factory.
The MQBA Mayura is being offered in a robusto (5 x 54)and toro (6 x 52) vitola, with 25,000 of each of the two sizes created. Both will be packed in glass tubes and packed into 24-count boxes. The company has not announced pricing, but it has confirmed that it will be on display at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, with shipping scheduled to begin in November. Mel Shah has said that he is also looking at adding a corona and torpedo to the line in a future.
The word mayura means peacock in Sanskrit, and the company says that it has embraced the term as grace.
