The new limited edition Casa Martin cigar from the Martin Family of Cigars is nearing release according to Maria Martin, with May looking like the month it will arrive at retail.
A black-and-white mock-up image of the band has been posted on the company’s Facebook page since late January, and on Wednesday the four sizes were announced via Facebook:
- Robusto – 4 3/4 x 48
- Toro – 6 x 54
- Grande – 6 x 60
- Grandisimo – 7 x 70
“The Casa Martin is a cigar that was produced in the 90’s by Pedro Martin made in the Canary Island from tobaccos around the world” Martin said, noting that the line was never sold to the public. In honor of Pedro Martin, the Casa Martin name is being resurrected with a bold, full Maduro cigar that “ignites the imagination with its fullness yet smoothness that only a Mexican San Andres Maduro Wrapper can deliver,” said Martin. The Casa Martin is the fullest cigar in the Martin Family line and achieves that goal without sacrificing a truly great taste with strength and character.
The new line is being produced at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa in Estelí, Nicaragua. When it hits retail, it will come with an MSRP starting at $7.30 per cigar and will be packed in 20-count boxes. Final production numbers haven’t been set, but Martin noted that it will only be available via “a select few elite retailers.”
The company was launched on February 1, 2011 and debuted with three lines, the Corojo, Gold and Ruby. In late 2011 the company doubled its offerings to six lines by adding the Fiera, the “M” and the Royal.
