There’s a second size of Reinado’s Grand Apex scheduled for early next year.
In February, the company plans on releasing the Grand Apex 6 x 60, a gordo size version of the blend which debuted earlier this year. It will use a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. The line is made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
“Our Grand Apex blend created at AGANORSA Leaf has made a huge, positive impact in the premium cigar retail space,” said Antonio Lam, founder of Reinado, in a statement to halfwheel. “Consumers want to experience this blend in a bigger size and we are going to appease the requests.”
The Grand Apex 6 x 60 will have an MSRP of $12.75 per cigar. The initial production run is limited to 200 boxes of 15 cigars.
Like the first release, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Dementia Society of America. When Reinado returned to shelves after a more than five-year hiatus, Lam said part of the reason for the company’s absence was his need to care for his father, who was diagnosed with dementia.
