While the company makes a set of core vitolas regularly, its lines also feature cigars that are limited in production, though made annually. Next year, the company will add sister sizes for three of those cigars.
For example, this year the CroMagnon line got a limited production extension called Mandible Mastodon. Next year the Aquitaine line, a sister blend to CroMagnon, will be receiving the same vitola.
Mastodon is a box-pressed version of the 4 1/2 x 60 Mandible vitola. The Aquitaine version will arrive in May. Pricing is set at $8.70 and the initial production is limited to 400 boxes of 24s.
In addition, the Aquitaine line will also get a Slobberknocker. The 7 1/2 x 56 double capped parejo has been around since 2012 for the CroMagnon line. The Aquitaine Slobberknocker will debut in April. The initial production is limited to 150 boxes of 10 cigars with pricing set at $15 per cigar.

I enjoy every cigar we make, but I can always tell when we have a standout (from my perspective) by the measure of how many I take home to enjoy on my personal time. This new 56rg prensado really elevates the EC XVIII blend. Only a few weeks old, they’re already extremely good. This was our second blend. We wanted to produce something we could always keep going while we struggled to accumulate tobacco for CroMagnon in the early days. Ecuador Connecticut turns out to be tougher than I thought, but we knew as soon as Esteban gave us these samples that this was an excellent every day go-to standard. Despite numerous tweaks and tries, we came back to the very first blend. We only make and sell about 150,000 a year….but this blend in every size from the petite Corona Charity to the lonsdale A.W.S. IV is an excellent representation of what we do every day here in Esteli. #craft
Finally, the Intemperance EC XVIII will be getting its own 5 x 56 pressed cigar. That cigar is called Goodness and it will arrive in February. Pricing is set at $8.70 per cigar and there will be 500 boxes of 12 cigars.
The other Intemperance line, BA XXI, got the vitola in 2014. It is known as Revenge.

- January — CroMagnon Fomorian
- March — Intemperance EC A.W.S. IV
- May — Aquitaine EMH Saber Tooth
- June — CroMagnon Mandible Mastodon
Finally, the company says it has one additional release, though details about that cigar are expected to be announced at a later date.
