A new limited edition is coming from MoyaRuiz, as today the company announced the Dim Mak.

It’s a 5 x 54 robusto gordo that uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Dominican filler. Only 700 boxes of 10 cigars are being produced, with a single cigar MSRP of $10.99.

The cigar comes out of a relationship with Cigar Dojo, an online cigar community. Members of the website will have first crack at the MoyaRuiz Dim Mak, which will first be sold through JR Cigar. It will go on sale to those with a pre-sale link on August 5 before being released to the general public a few days later. Additional retailers will have the opportunity to carry the cigar as well should boxes remain, according to Danny Moya.

As for the name, it ties in with Cigar Dojo’s Asian and martial arts themes and inspiration, as its name means “the death touch,” and refers to an ancient technique that was said to cause death or delay death using only the hand to strike one of the body’s vital points. MoyaRuiz has previously produced the La Jugada Nunchuck and Chinese Finger Trap as part of the relationship.

In a press release, the company noted that “being that this is probably the last limited edition release our company will offer unless something changes before August 8th, we figured to give our customers our best punch!”

The cigars are being made at the La Zona Cigar Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
