MoyaRuiz Cigars is making moves, literally.

The company founded in 2013 by Danny Moya and Nelson Ruiz has announced that it has relocated from New Jersey to Boca Raton, Fla.

It also has a pair of new releases. The first is the La Jugada Habano Semi-Pressed Toro, a 6 x 52 pressed version of the La Jugada blend. It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.

The company says that unlike most La Jugadas, which are aged for six months after rolling, these cigars have been aged for a full year. It has an MSRP of $9.50 and is expected to begin shipping this week.

In addition, the company says that the Chinese Finger Trap will return later this year. Chinese Finger Trap was released in 2015 as a limited edition item. The cigars were covered in a Chinese finger trap, a type of toy.

The 2020 version, called Chinese Finger Trap #2, will be an exclusive for Caravan Cigar Co. in Bath, Pa. The company did not disclose the blend of the original release and won’t be disclosing the blend for the new release.

It is expected to be released in December.

As with the rest of the company’s lines, it is made at the La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
