July 8, 2013 — The Ediciones Limitadas -Limited Editions- of Habanos* (D.O.P) are highly appreciated and awaited every year by enthusiasts worldwide. They are characterized by vitolas -sizes- that do not appear in the usual range of the brand portfolio, and they are distinguished by a careful selection of their leaves – wrapper, filler and binder- which have been aged for a period of at least 2 years. The wrapper dressing these Habanos comes from the top leaves of the Tapado – shade grown- black Cuban tobacco plant, and is relevant characteristic that identifies these special productions. This wrapper is usually darker than the wrappers of regular range sizes of the brand.
