The new Don Lino lines are off to stores.

Today, Miami Cigar & Co. began shipping the new Don Lino Connecticut and Maduro. Both cigars are made in the Dominican Republic at an undisclosed factory, which is a departure from the existing Don Lino Africa which is made by AJ Fernandez in Nicaragua.

The Don Lino Connecticut uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Dominican olor binder and four different fillers: Dominican criollo 98, Dominican olor, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania broadleaf. The Don Lino Maduro uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Dominican olor binder and three fillers: Cameroon, Dominican criollo 98 and Pennsylvania broadleaf.

Each is offered in the same three vitolas, priced the same:

  • Don Lino Connecticut / Maduro Robusto (5 x 50) — $5.95 (Box of 20, $119)
  • Don Lino Connecticut / Maduro Toro (5 1/2 x 54) — $6.25 (Box of 20, $125)
  • Don Lino Connecticut / Maduro Gran Toro (6 x 60) — $6.50 (Box of 20, $130)

The cigars were announced at the end of June and shown off at the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show.

Update (Nov. 22, 2021) — Miami Cigar & Co. has clarified that the MSRP of the Don Lino 6 x 60 is $6.50, not $6.
