The Pinar Del Río Small Batch Reserve was originally scheduled for a late February or early March release, but that date came and went without any signs of the newest release from Abe Flores and Juan Rodriguez.

Earlier this week, numerous retailers reported receiving shipments of the new cigar, which comes in four sizes across two different sizes. Patrick Lagreid reviewed Robusto versions of both the Small Batch Reserve Habano and Small Batch Reserve Maduro.

This is the first new nationally distributed cigar to come from Flores and Rodriguez’s new factory, PDR Cigars, which opened a few months ago.
