Viva Republica’s Guerilla Warfare is getting a big brother in the form of a 5 1/4 x 43 corona. Jason Holly, founder of Viva Republic, told halfwheel he expects the La Aurora-made cigars to begin shipping in early March, as soon as the 50-count cabinets arrive.


The original 4 x 41 Guerrilla Warfare shipped last spring after similar packaging delays. Holly said MSRP is set at $5 per cigars.
