The Gran Habano S.T.K. Barracuda will be adding a retailer-exclusive size later this year – a 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Gorda made for Tim Podwika’s PodmanCigars.com.
Podwika said that he was sitting with George Rico of Gran Habano at the company’s recently-opened factory on Calle Ocho in Miami and he brought up the idea of doing a Corona Gorda size in the Barracuda blend. After tweaking the blend to fit the size, “We think we got it right and are set to roll with it,” Podwika said.
The cigars should be ready to release in September, with 200 boxes of 10 being produced. They will retail for $80 per box.
