General Cigar Company will debut Hoyo de Monterrey Edición de Cumpleaños 150, the first and only cigar to feature a proprietary Habano Shade wrapper tobacco, the first ever grown in Esteli.
Hoyo de Monterrey Edición de Cumpleaños 150 is a 6″ x 54 box-pressed offering handcrafted in Honduras. The blend features a classic Ecuadoran binder and a spicy combination of Nicaraguan filler leaves representing the best of the country’s tobacco growing regions. The cigar is a study in contrasts, with a hearty, well-oiled leaf that burns to a strong, yet sweet smoke for an unparalleled taste experience.
To celebrate the heritage brand’s 150th anniversary, General Cigar is releasing just 4,000 boxes of this commemorative cigar. In a nod to the future of the brand, the cigars will be housed in a sleek, 15-count box bearing a modern interpretation of the Hoyo de Monterrey logo.
The suggested retail price per cigar is $7.99, with a box price of $119.85. Hoyo de Monterrey Edición de Cumpleaños 150 will be available at retail beginning on April 1, 2015, while supplies last.
