Serino Cigar Co. has announced its first extension to the Taíno line.

The Serino Taíno Heritage uses an Ecuadorian habano 2000 wrapper over a piloto cubano binder and Dominican criollo 98 and piloto cubano fillers. The company says that the filler was aged for 4-5 years.

  • Taíno Hamaca 5 1/8 x 50 — $8 (Box of 20, $160)
  • Taíno Yocahú 6 x 47 — $9 (Box of 20, $180)
  • Taíno Manicato 6 1/4 x 54 — $9.50 (Box of 20, $190)

Each of the names is rooted in Taíno culture. Hamaca translates to hammock, Yocahú references the god of the sky and the Manicato refers to “a bold, valiant person with a loving, big heart,” according to the company.

While the original Taíno line is made at La Corona in Estelí, the Taíno Heritage is being produced at Tabacalera Palma.

The Taíno Heritage will debut at the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins June 29, and will ship in early August.
Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
