Gary Griffith of Emilio Cigars announced via Facebook late Thursday night that he has entered into an agreement with Noel Rojas of Guayacan Cigars to distribute the line.
Griffith said more information would be coming soon via the Emilio Cigars sales team, but described Guayacan as a “remarkable new cigar” and Rojas as “a remarkable young man.” Guayacan made their IPCPR convention and trade show debut recently in Orlando, and both manufacturers participated in the recent Chattanooga Tweetup event. The company is based in Esteli, Nicaragua with an initial line that includes four vitolas: a 6 x 52 Toro, 7 x 50 box-pressed Churchill, 5 x 50 Robusto and 6 1/8 x 52 Torpedo. The filler and binder is Corojo ’98 that comes from Casa Fernandez, while the wrapper is Ecuadoran Habano. MSRP for the line is between $5.90 – $6.50 per stick, and all come in 25-count boxes. Rojas’ initial run totaled 10,000 total cigars across the four sizes.
