R. Field Wine Co. in Hawaii will be getting a new store exclusive from Warped this fall, as Kyle Gellis has announced that the RF-X50 will land on the island in October as part of an event he will be attending.
Gellis calls the RF-X50 “the strongest Corto to date,” though he declined to describe what changes went into the cigar to achieve that description. It remains a Nicaraguan puro, however, using all AGANORSA tobacco, and comes in a box-pressed 4 1/2 x 50 vitola, the same as the X50, which is no longer regularly available.
A total of 200 boxes of 25 cigars are being made for the event, with an estimated MSRP of $10 per cigar and $250 for a box of 25 cigars, though that is before Hawaii’s tobacco tax is added. Factoring that it would put the single stick price at $15 and boxes at $375 per halfwheel estimates.
The RF-X50 will debut Oct. 26 at an event at the Prince Waikiki Hotel with Gellis in attendance.
Corto debuted in October 2015.
