July 11, 2012 — This year at the International Premium Cigars and Pipe Retailers Trade Show in Orlando, a new company will arise. Lopez-Tabak Tobacalero Co. will debut La Vida Cigars, a line manufactured in Estelí, Nicaragua. Both Stephen Tabak and Felix Lopez, owners of La Vida Cigars, grandparents worked in cigar factory so you can say it is their destiny to be in this industry.

La Vida Cigars will be releasing two blends, a mild called “SUAVE” and a medium known as “MEDIO”. The mild or Suave will feature a smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder and Honduran/Nicaraguan filler. This particular blend is very creamy, smooth, and light on your palate, a polished blend to be enjoyed by all.

The cream of the crop for La Vida Cigars is the Medio, a medium blend with lots of flavor. The wrapper of this superb blend is a four year aged Brazilian Ariparaca Oscuro. Surrounded with a Brazilian binder and Honduran/Nicaraguan filler this blend oozes with richness. Espresso and Coca notes from this blend will impale your senses.

In each of the two blends there will be three different Vitolas, a Robusto (5×52), a Toro (6×52), and El Gran (6×60). La Vida Cigars is more than a cigar line, it’s a lifestyle. No matter if you’re a doctor or a construction worker, somehow you are living the life. Make the most of it by enjoying a premium boutique line called La Vida Cigars. La Vida Cigars will be the first-rate boutique line at the 2012 IPCPR. “La Vida Cigars – BECAUSE YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE”
