Elogio to Release Two Limited Edition Cigars at IPCPR


Elogio Cigars has confirmed that they will be releasing a pair of new cigars at this year’s IPCPR Convention and Trade Show, which kicks off on Sunday.

The Excentrico No. 2 is a limited production of just 2,000 cigars that Nabil Sabbah of Elogio says is “a much fuller and stronger cigar than the original edition.” It is a 7 1 /4 x 58 Salomon vitola with a fantail cap that uses an Ecuadoran Habano Oscuro wrapper over a Nicaraguan Habano binder and a filler that uses five different leaves all from Nicaragua: Estelí ligero and viso, Jalapa ligero and seco and viso from Ometepe. The Elogio Excentrico No. will come in 10-count boxes with an MSRP of $15 per cigar.

Elogio will also unveil a new Robusto Especial, a 5 1/8 x 54 vitola that also uses an Ecuadoran Habano Oscuro wrapper, but with a Nicaraguan Habano Viso binder from Jalapa and filler from Jalapa and Estelí. The blend is based on the Elogio Limitada Salomon but with a slightly stronger and fuller profile. It too features a pigtail cap  with the addition of a covered foot, and will be even more limited than the Excentrico No. 2, with production slated to be around 300 boxes of 10 for a total run of 3,000 cigars. The MSRP is listed at $9.50 per cigar.

About the author

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.
