Fresh off adding a completely new line in the form of the MBombay Habano, Bombay Tobak’s portfolio is one again expanding.
Mel Shah, owner of Bombay Tobak, told halfwheel that five new regular sizes of the company’s Kēsara and Mōra lines will begin shipping tomorrow. It brings each line to a total of eight cigars, but unlike the first three sizes, the new vitolas will ship in cans.
Each line will receive a 585 (5 x 58, can of 13, $13.15/16), A (9 x 47, $17/17.39), No.4 (5.1 x 44, can of 20, $10/11), Salomon (7 x 58, can of 13, $16/17.39) and Torpedo No.2 (6 x 52, can of 15, $14/16). The Mōra blend is slightly less expensive than the Kēsara in each of the sizes.
MBombay debuted last year. Its Mōra line uses a Dominican Havana corojo wrapper, Peruvian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Ecuador. Kēsara uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut des florado 2002 wrapper, an Ecuadorian Havana binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic.
The company’s lines are made at Tabacos de Costa Rica.
This likely won’t be the only MBombay line in cans, the company has plans for a Vintage Reserve line, which is also slated to come in cans.
