Last year, Paul Stulac returned to the cigar world with a release known as El Nuevo Comienzo, Spanish for The New Beginning. The line’s first release was a 5 x 54 robusto extra sold through Privada Cigar Club—an online storefront and monthly cigar club that sells to consumers—and it then released a 5 1/2 x 54 robusto extra through the Limited Cigar Association, a wholesale distribution network operated by Privada that specializes in limited release cigars.
Now that second cigar—interestingly, the two cigars were not the same blend—will be sold as a regular production item through the Limited Cigar Association. It is rolled at Tabacalera La Perla in Nicaragua using a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a corojo 99 binder from Jalapa, Nicaragua, and fillers from Nicaragua.
MSRP is set at $12 per cigar.
Stulac says there will be additional sizes of the El Nuevo Comienzo in the future.
