Miami Cigar & Co. has begun the national release of the Nestor Miranda Collection Corojo, the latest addition to the company founder’s signature line.

Unveiled at the 2016 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show, it’s the fourth cigar to be released under the Nestor Miranda Collection header, joining a Connecticut, Habano and Maduro, which debuted in May 2014.


The Corojo version is a Nicaraguan puro with a corojo leaf selected for the wrapper. It comes in the same four sizes and at the same prices as the other blends in the line, with a Robusto (4 1/2 x 50, $7.50), Corona Gorda (6 x 46, $8.25), Toro (5 1/2 x 54, $8.50) and Gran Toro (6 x 60, $9.50). Each are packed in 20-count boxes and are regular production releases.

“Nestor has been adamant about introducing his beloved Corojo wrapper to the Collection,” said Jason Wood, vice president of Miami Cigar & Co., via a press release. “We would have loved to introduce it sooner but we decided to wait until the blend was perfect. The reaction from the retailers at this year’s IPCPR solidified our thoughts on the blend.”

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
