Sunday Fiver – January 10, 2010

Yesterday Chris and I took a trip to The Humidor in Baltimore for an event with Nestor Miranda. After having a few cigars and some Dominican Rum with Nestor and Miami Cigar Sales Manger Rene Castaneda, we talked to Rene and got the following 5 tidbits of information:

1. One of the questions we had for Rene was when the new Nestor Miranda Dominicano would be released. “The cigars are ready and just waiting for the 90 days of aging to be complete,” Rene says. “They will be released in March.” Rene also informs us that this blend will be the first foray into the use Dominican tobacco as a wrapper for legendary cigar maker Don Pepin Garcia. There will be two wrappers for this blend, much like that of the Nestor Miranda Special Selection line of cigars, to make two blends that will cover a wider spectrum of the body profile. Also intriguing to me is that this blend will be made with the left over wrapper tobacco from the La Aurora 100 Anos production.
2. Also coming in March look for a new release from La Aurora.
3. For the 2010 IPCPR, Miami Cigar is working on a repackaging effort for EO Brands 601 lines.
4. Also for IPCPR, look for a new budget ($5.00 range) smoke from La Aurora. This will be the first Miami Cigar made La Aurora made to fit into this price range.
5. Just another little (maybe insignificant) but interesting piece of information from Rene was that Tatiana, Miami Cigars line of flavored cigars, makes up 25% of their sales and is one of the top selling premium cigars in the nation.
