The Oscar Maduro from Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Co. is getting a new size this week, as the company has announced plans to unveil a corona vitola for the line at the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) trade show.
It’s a 5 1/4 x 44 vitola, and like the rest of the line that debuted in 2017, it uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper, Honduran binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. It comes wrapped in a candela leaf to be removed prior to smoking and is packed in 11-count boxes designed to look like the cigar molds used to make cigars. Each box is priced at $104.50, which works out to $9.50 per cigar.
The Oscar Maduro line, which was an extension to 2016’s The Oscar Habano, now stands at four sizes:
- The Oscar Maduro Robusto (5 x 50)
- The Oscar Maduro Toro (6 x 52)
- The Oscar Maduro 6 x 60 (6 x 60)
- The Oscar Maduro Corona (5 1/4 x 44)
It joins the recently announced Super Fly Connecticut as Valladares’ new cigars that will be shown off at TPE, which runs from Jan. 29-31 in Las Vegas.
Additionally, the company has confirmed that it will not be raising prices on its lines in 2020.
