The latest from MLB Cigar Ventures is heading to stores.
Mike Bellody, owner of MLB Cigar Ventures, told halfwheel his newest line, Imperia Islero, has begun shipping. The new line, which Bellody describes as full-body, uses an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper over a Dominican criollo 98 binder and Dominican criollo 98 and Pennsylvanian fillers.
It’s offered in the same five sizes as the regular Imperia line: Gordo (6 x 60), Toro (6 x 50), Robusto (5 x 52), Pita (5 1/2 x 44) and Fundador (7 x 50/33). Pricing ranges from $8.50-14 per cigar. Four sizes are packed in boxes of 20, while the Fundador is offered in a 10-count box.
The line is produced at the Quesada Cigars in the Dominican Republic.
