The Ortega Serie D Maduro Lancero, made specifically for the DC Cigar Tweetup in March, is heading to stores nationally next month. Eddie Ortega confirmed to halfwheel that the 6 1/2 x 38 cigar should ship in either the first or second week of May. The cigar will only be sold in the Maduro version of Ortega’s Serie D line, the first release from Ortega after he left EO Brands last year.
“Only boxes of 10 for right now, until I see demand,” said Ortega. The cigars were offered at the DC Tweetup in bundles of 10. Pricing will be $8.25 per cigar and $82.50 per box, keeping in line with Ortega’s overall pricing structure.
