Rock-a-Feller Cigars has announced the launch of the Nicaragua Habano Lonsdale, a new vitola being added to one of the company’s core lines.

It is a 6 1/2 x 44 vitola that has an MSRP of $9. Like the other sizes in the line, the blend features an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Nicaraguan fillers from the Estelí, Jalapa and Ometepe regions. It is produced by American Caribbean Cigars in Nicaragua.

“I really love how the flavor profile comes alive,” said Kevin (Schweitzer) Gold, owner of Rock-a-Feller Cigars, about the new size via a press release.

This becomes the sixth size in the Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano line:

  • Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Robusto (5 x 52)
  • Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Toro (6 x 52)
  • Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Torpedo (6 1/8 x 52)
  • Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Churchill (7 x 48)
  • Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Toro Gordo (6 x 60)
  • Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Lonsdale (6 1/2 x 44)

The Rock-a-Feller Nicaragua Habano Lonsdale will be offered in both 20-count bundles and boxes. The company is currently shipping the bundled version, and said in a press release that the boxed version will be available “within a couple of months.”

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
