PDR Cigars Announces A. Flores Gran Reserva Habano for 2015


Add three new releases to the list of cigars coming out in 2015 as Abe Flores of PDR Cigars has confirmed the half corona vitola will return this spring for a new A. Flores Gran Reserva Habano blend, while two more sizes should be out this summer.

Currently slated for a March release, the A. Flores Gran Reserva Habano Half Corona will measure 3 1/2 x 46 and uses a Ecuadorian Claro HVA wrapper, Ecuadorian Habano binder and Dominican Habano and Nicaraguan Habano fillers. The new cigar will debut in five-pack tins with an MSRP of $25.45, with a 50-count box option coming later.


The Habano version of the half corona will wear a black band as opposed to the red ones that the A. Flores Gran Reserva Corojo wears. That line debuted at the 2013 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show:


Flores didn’t confirm any details of the two other new sizes for the Habano line, but did say he expects them to debut at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, happening July 17-21 in New Orleans.

Initial details of the new line were reported by Cigar Insider.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
