George Rodriguez of Rodrigo Cigars has confirmed that The Corona Project, a limited edition run set to debut in the summer of 2012, has been indefinitely postponed. The last update pegged a release in June, but the William Ventura-made project is now shelved due to what Rodriguez described as a cluttered market.

Rodriguez told halfwheel:

I love to see creativity in cigars, but as a smoker and a cigar maker I can’t help but feel that too many of these new lines are contrived in order to give sales a shot in the arm. You don’t have to be an expert to see that only a few new lines every year are truly innovative. It has become a fashion show and as such the new is always interesting and desirable at first, but it’s short-sighted. The undeniable fact is that really great cigars have been and always will be developed over long periods of time.

As of now there is no timetable on a release, although Rodriguez reiterated the blends were finalized.
