The latest Todos Las Dias vitola is shipping to stores, but it’s a bit different than the other sizes in the line.
As the story goes, these cigars were made by mistake. Steve Saka, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust’s founder, wanted to add the Thick Lonsdale size to the line, but he gave the Joya de Nicaragua factory a different blend.
After the cigars were rolled, Saka smoked them and realized that the blend was off. Ultimately, he opted to release the stronger blend, labeled “Mas Fuerte,” as a limited release.
Last Friday, the cigars began heading to stores.
The size is 6 x 46, hence the Thick Lonsdale moniker, using all Nicaraguan tobaccos. It’s priced at $11.95 per cigar and limited to 2,000 boxes of 10 cigars.
