There’s a new El Centurion coming to this year’s trade show, one that’s wrapper is coming from Connecticut.

The new cigar, El Centurion H-2K-CT, uses Cuban-seed tobacco grown in Connecticut, something the company is describing as proprietary.

News of the release was first reported by Cigar Aficionado.

It will debut in two box-pressed sizes: Corona (5 1/2 x 48) and Toro (6 x 52). The filler tobaccos and binder are from Nicaraguan.

My Father Cigars, Inc. reintroduced the El Centurion line two years ago as regular production line in four sizes with Nicaraguan sun grown criollo 98 wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and fillers. The line actually debuted in 2007 as a high-priced limited edition.

Janny García, vp of My Father Cigars, Inc., did not respond to multiple emails requesting comment.
