Earlier this year, Serino Cigar Co. sent a 5 1/2 x 44 corona version of its Taíno line to CigarClub.com; now that cigar is heading to stores across the country as the newest regular production size of the Taíno line.

The Taíno The 44 is the same cigar that was released to CigarClub.com, a corona version of the Taíno blend: an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It has an MSRP of $8 per cigar and is being sold in boxes of 20.

Serino began shipping the cigar to other stores earlier this week. The one change is that the CigarClub.com versions carried a secondary band indicating that they were made for CigarClub.com, which is both a monthly cigar subscription service and an online retailer.

Like the rest of the line, it is produced at the La Corona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
