Mombacho Cigars has begun shipping its Cosecha 2013 release to retailers, some two months after it was expected to be on shelves. The delay came as a result of the civil and political unrest in Nicaragua over changes to how the country’s health care and pension systems are funded.
Just as with last year’s Mombacho Cosecha 2012, the 2013 version uses tobaccos from a single year’s harvest, though this time it is 2013’s crop. It is once again being offered in a 6 x 52 toro vitola with a pigtail cap, priced at $21.95 and packaged in 10-count boxes. A total of 800 boxes have been produced at the company’s Casa Favilli factory in Granada, Nicaragua, where have they been resting since being rolled in 2014. Each Cosecha releases is designed to have at least four years of rest before being released.
