Sosa Cigars has released a pair of new cigars that add a new spin to its Sosa Underground line and a new size to the Sosa Auric Perfectum line.

The Sosa Underground Delphic Dual Wrapper is a barber pole with Ecuadorian candela and habano wrappers that cover an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan fillers.

It is being released in a single 5 1/2 x 41 perfecto vitola with a tapered head and foot that get covered in the habano leaf.

The cigar is being made at La Vega Cubana in Clearwater, Fla. by just two rollers, one of whom regularly works on the Underground line, and the other who was brought in just for this project. It sells for $10.50 per cigar and comes in 20-count boxes.

Antillian Cigar Corporation has also announced a new lancero for its Sosa Auric Perfectum line. Measuring 7 1/2 x 38, the cigar is made at Tabacalera Aromas de Jalapa S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua and uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. It will sell for $7 per cigar and comes in 24-count boxes.

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.
