As noted yesterday by Cigar Aficionado, the Nestor Miranda Grand Reserve will return for another year. The Grand Reserve was part of a plethora of releases Miami Cigar & Co. had at last year’s trade show and this year’s is expected to arrive in August, the same month as the 2012 IPCPR.
The cigar will return at 6 1/8 x 52 and at its $12 price point, but for the past month word around Miami Cigar & Co. has been that this will be the strongest cigar they’ve ever distributed, which likely dethrones the inaugural Grand Reserve or La Sirena for that moniker.
This is one of two Grand Reserve related projects Miami Cigar & Co. has announced for 2012. Barry Stein has previously made it known that Miami Cigar & Co. will have the original Grand Reserve alongside additional vitolas as part of a new line, a concept E.P. Carrillo did last year with its Elencos. Stein told CA that they will be using a Cuban name, although he wouldn’t elaborate further.
