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.
