The three new sizes of Luciano The Dreamer from ACE Prime will be arriving on store shelves soon, as the company is set to begin shipping them on Monday.

The company announced them in mid-November and showed them off at the 2022 Tobacco Plus Expo in late January. The new sizes were announced alongside plans for a wine  being released under The Dreamer name and which is being produced by Spanish winemaker Mas Igneus, in which Luciano Meirelles is a partner. The wine debuted in Europe in mid-February and will be arriving in the U.S. in mid-June, Meirelles told halfwheel.

After debuting in a 7 1/2 x 38 lancero vitola in August 2020, Luciano The Dreamer now has some thicker vitola options:

  • Luciano The Dreamer Hermoso No. 4 (5 x 48) — $12 (Box of 15, $180)
  • Luciano The Dreamer Toro de Lux (6 7/8 x 50) — $12.50 (Box of 15, $187.50)
  • Luciano The Dreamer Belicoso (5 1/2 x 52) — $12.95 (Box of 15, $194.25)

A fifth size, a 6 1/2 x 38 short lancero, was added in late 2021 as an exclusive release for CigarClub.com.

The Luciano The Dreamer blend uses an Ecuadorian habano corojo 99 wrapper and a Nicaraguan binder, with the fillers coming from Nicaragua and Peru, and is produced at Tabacalera Pichardo in Nicaragua. It is named for Luciano Meirelles, a co-founder of ACE Prime as well as its master blender and president.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
