The third release in Altadis U.S.A.’s Montecristo Artisan Series will be shown off later this week.

It’s called the Montecristo Artisan Series III, a 6 1/4 x 52 belicoso, made entirely of Dominican tobacco. The company says every leaf in the Artisan Series III is selected by three members of the Grupo de Maestros, Altadis’ name for its senior-most production heads.

Pricing is set at $19.50 per cigar and production is limited to 2,000 boxes of 25 cigars.

The Artisan Series III will debut at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 13 in Las Vegas, and begin shipping to retailers in August.
