Two years ago, Padilla Cigar Co. added the Cava and now the original line is getting a makeover and a Maduro sibling.

At the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, the company will add the Padilla Cava Maduro, a Mexican San Andrés-wrapped version of the cigar.

It will be produced at Raíces Cubanas in Danlí, Honduras in the same sizes as the regular line: 4 1/2 x 60, 5 x 56, 6 x 54, 6 x 60, 7 x 70 and 8 x 60. Ernesto Padilla told halfwheel the cigars will come in 16- or 20-count boxes depending on the size and he expects pricing to be around $8-9 per cigar.

In addition, the regular Cava line will receive a makeover in the form of new bands.

The 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show begins July 25 in Las Vegas.
