Cigar smokers in Switzerland will be getting a new Edición Regional on retail shelves, as Intertabak AG, the Habanos S.A. distributor for the country, has announced the Quai d’Orsay Sélection Royale, which will also serve as a cigar that celebrates the distributor’s 25th anniversary.
The cigar comes in the popular 109 vitola, which measures 7 1/4 inches (184mm) long with a 50 ring gauge, and is known for having a distinctive head design with softly sloping shoulders. It is a size brought to attention by the Edmundo Dantes Conde 109, an Edición Regional release for Mexico from 2007.
It will be released in 50-count cabinet boxes, with just 1,600 boxes produced, according to a report by Cigar Journal, which previewed the cigar during the Festival del Habanos XXII. Intertabak confirmed that detail after this story was originally published, adding that a release date and pricing have not yet been finalized.
This new Quai d’Orsay will mark the third time that Intertabak has selected the 109 vitola for an Edición Regional release, joining the Punch Clasicos from 2011 and the La Gloria Cubana Orgullosos from 2018.
