At this year’s IPCPR Convention and trade show, Valentía Cigars will show off its newest blend—Valentia San Andrés. The cigar—which is currently only offered in a 6 x 56 parejo size—uses a Mexican San Andrés negro wrapper, Peruvian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

The cigars are rolled at ABAM Cigars, S.R.L. in the Dominican Republic and sold in boxes of 25 with suggested retail price at $11.60 per cigar. Valentía says the cigars are ready to ship now and will be fulfilling IPCPR orders immediately.

In addition, the company has created a variety of three-packs for San Andrés, Lucido and Torpedo and one that features one of each of the cigars.

Update (July 16, 2014) — Valentía has changed the name from Espada to San Andrés.
