It’s not everyday you see a colon in the name of a cigar, but Córdoba & Morales is using one in the name of its newest release, the Platino Sumatra: Reposado en Cedro Toro.
The 6 1/2 x 52 toro uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper that has been aged for nearly five years, with Nicaraguan tobacco used for the binder and filler. Once the cigar is rolled, it rests in Spanish cedar boxes for one year before being packed into 20-count boxes that will head to retailers. The single stick MSRP is $12, while a box will cost $240 before taxes.
Córdoba & Morales will unveil the Platino Sumatra: Reposado en Cedro Toro at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which runs from July 25-28 in Las Vegas, Nev. The company has not yet announced the factory making the new cigar or what production numbers are.
