Another month, another Boutique Blends exclusive has landed at Thompson Cigar Co.

This time it’s the La Bohème Momentos, a three size line that uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Dominican habano binder and Dominican habano fillers. The three vitola are Turin (5 1/2 x 46, $6), Fenice (6 x 52, $6.50) and La Scala (7 x 50, $7). Those are the same three sizes as the La Bohème Encantador.


La Bohéme is named after an opera written by Giacomo Puccini, which is a person favorite of Boutique Blends’ owner Rafael Nodal. The three names are famous opera houses where the opera has been performed.

It is produced at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic.

Last month the Tampa-based retailer received the Aging Room Quattro F55M Maduro.
