PDR Cigars is bringing one of its European blends to the U.S. for a limited release.

It’s called El Criollito, a four-size line, centered around criollo tobacco. As expected that means criollo as the wrapper, an Ecuadorian rosado variant, along with a Mexican San Andrés binder and two criollo 98 fillers: one from the Dominican Republic and the other from Jalapa, Nicaragua.

Four sizes are offered.

  • El Criollito Half Corona (3 1/2 x 50) — $4.25
  • El Criollito Robusto (5 x 54) — $5.65
  • El Criollito Double Magnum (6 x 60) — $6.95
  • El Criollito Sentential (7 x 70) — $7.25

While it debuted in Europe last year, the cigars began shipping to retailers in the U.S. on April 1.

It’s limited to just 400 boxes of each size.
