A.J. Fernandez Cigars will be raising prices of its San Lotano core lines due to the increasing tobacco costs. Spence Drake, the company’s national sales manager, told halfwheel the San Lotano Connecticut, Habano and Maduro lines will increase 25 cents on the wholesale side.

The increase only affects those three lines, San Lotano Oval, Pinolero and El Mayimbe will remain at their current prices. The increase takes effect Feb. 3.
