After soft-launching at an event last month, HVC Cigars will begin shipping the newest size of its San Isidro line.
The company says it will begin shipping the San Isidro Divinos, a 6 1/4 x 48 box-pressed toro, tomorrow. Pricing is set at $10 per cigar and sold in boxes of 20.
The San Isidro line uses an Ecuadorian habano cafe wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Like most of HVC’s cigars, it is made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The name San Isidro references a neighborhood in Old Havana that was made famous by Alberto Yarini, a Cuban pimp who worked there and was killed by gunfire from a rival pimp’s gang in 1910. HVC debuted the regular production line in 2016.
