Next month, Bombay Tobak/MBombay will release its newest line, Gaaja.
Inspired by the Sanskrit word for elephant, gaja, the new line is offered in a single box-pressed 6 x 54 size.
Gaaja uses a hybrid Ecuadorian wrapper which the company describes as a mixture of Connecticut desflorado and mejorado 2004. Underneath is an Ecuadorian HVA mejorado seco binder and a five-country filler blend that includes Dominican HVA mejorado ligero, Dominican criollo 98 viso, Ecuadorian criollo 98 viso, Peruvian hybrid habano and a hybrid habano 2000 viso from Paraguay.
Suggested retail pricing is $15.50 and it will come in 24-count boxes. It is scheduled to be released July 1.
MBombay is produced at Tabacos de Costa Rica.
