Habanos S.A.’s Edición Regional program has resulted in the release of limited edition cigars for countries and regions around the world, and now, Malaysia is getting its first cigar in the series with the San Cristobal de La Habana Harimau Malaya.
It comes in the Montesco vitola, a thick robusto that measures 5 1/8 inches (130mm) long and has a 55 ring gauge. It is the same vitola as the regular production Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchills, and one that has been used for a number of Edición Regional releases in recent years.
