Altadis U.S.A.’s Saint Luis Rey brand will be getting a new line called Carenas that is scheduled to arrive in mid-April.
The line uses a Nicaraguan wrapper, Honduran broadleaf binder and Honduran fillers, and will be offered in four sizes:
- Saint Luis Rey Carenas Robusto (5 x 50) — $8.25 (Box of 20, $165)
- Saint Luis Rey Carenas Toro (6 x 52) — $8.50 (Box of 20, $170)

The cigar was blended by the Grupo de Maestros of La Flor De Copan, the company’s cigar factory in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras. The line gets its name from Puerto de Carenas, the previous name from the Port of Havana. There is also a Cuban-made line of cigars that uses the Saint Luis Rey name.
