Last week, Saint Luis Rey’s newest cigar, an Edición Regional, hit shelves in Spain.

The Saint Luis Rey Tesoros measure 4 1/3 (110) x 52, a petit edmundo. It’s priced at €8, or $8.48 per cigar and packaged in boxes of 10. Production is limited to 15,000 boxes.


Saint Luis Rey is somewhat of a unique choice for a Spanish regional. The brand is described as “unknown” in Spain by the country’s distributor, Tabacalera S.L.U.

This is the second cigar in as many weeks. The Bolívar Tesoro, a German regional, was released last week.

Tabacalera S.L.U. is a division of Imperial Brands, plc, which also owns a 50 percent stake in Habanos S.A.
