March 11, 2014 — This week we have begun shipping to retailers the La Zona Connecticut and Habano cigars in 20 count boxes. The La Zona cigars were first introduced at the IPCPR tradeshow in 2012. They were originally only available in 80 count crates and 20 count bundles for replenishment. This new packaging is in response to request from retailers and consumers alike looking for a smaller box count option. The 80 count crates and 20 count bundles are still available.
La Zona 20-Count Boxes.JPGThe La Zona cigar is a value-priced cigar made to honor and introduce our factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. With a medium bodied flavor profile, these cigars consist of Nicaraguan filler and binders and comes in both a Connecticut shade wrapper or a Habano wrapper grown in Nicaragua. The line currently comes in 2 vitolas, Robusto (5×52) and Super Toro (6-1/2×54). They carry a suggested retail value of $4.40 (Robusto) and $4.80 (Super Toro).
