Patoro’s Gran Añejo Reserva Ships


Patoro’s second release in the U.S. market is on its way to retailers, as Dr. Pablo Richard told halfwheel that shipping of the Gran Añejo Reserva begins this week.

Much like the debut Patoro Serie P release, the Gran Añejo Reserva Serie — USA Edition was first launched in Europe and is getting a tweak to the blend and packaging that customers on this side of the Atlantic will see. It uses the same Dominican fillers as the European version, but the wrapper is an Ecuadorian havano version in place of the Ecuadorian Connecticut found on the original line.

The packaging also changes from the natural cedar presentation found in Europe to a gold painted box for the U.S. The bands also get a subtle refresh, replacing the P found on the European version with the full PATORO name, again on a cardinal colored background.

The Gran Añejo Reserva comes in four vitolas: Gordito (4 x 58), Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 50) and Churchill (7 1/2 x 50). Each size is offered in boxes of 20, with single stick prices between $15 and $19.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
