Gary Griffith of Emilio Cigars announced this morning that the first blend of the Los Regalos series, "Quetzal", made in Esteli, Nicaragua will begin shipping immediately.
"These cigars are being produced in a new factory for Emilio Cigars, and we are excited to have formed this new partnership," he said.
There will be a total of 4 blends in the series, as well as a limited edition cigar made entirely from 2006 harvest tobaccos.
"The Robusto, Toro, and Torpedo sizes are available at this time," said Griffith, "and the Corona and Sixty will be released on January 11 at Riverside Cigars in Jeffersonville, IN. Those two sizes will ship to other retailers subsequent to that event."
This will be Emilio Cigars final new release of 2012, capping off an extremely productive year in which several new Emilio blends became available, and in which numerous distribution agreements were negotiated.
