June 29, 2017-- Mombacho Cigars, S.A. will debut their latest release, Cosecha 2012, at the upcoming International Premium Cigars & Pipe Retails (IPCPR) trade show in Las Vegas, NV. The Cosecha 2012 will be on display in the Mombacho Cigars booth (#455) starting on July 11, 2017.
“This is a project of historic magnitude, not only for Mombacho Cigars, S.A. but for the whole cigar industry. Through a complex process, we will highlight the best of Nicaraguan tobacco crops every year starting with 2012. Not all tobaccos are acceptable for this line; this is a true vintage,” said Mombacho Cigars’ President and Master Blender, Claudio Sgroi.
The Spanish word “cosecha” translates to “harvest or agricultural yield” in English. The chosen name reflects the genuine nature of this line, which features Nicaraguan tobaccos solely from 2012 in this first release of this limited edition evoking the “vintage” concept in the wine world: picking high quality fruits from a specific year, and a particular harvest or crop.
The cigars in this first release have been in the aging room at Casa Favilli, Mombacho’s factory in Granada,
Nicaragua since late 2013. Additionally, Cosecha 2013, 2014 and 2015 have already been rolled and feature
tobacco exclusively from the corresponding year and all of them are 100% Nicaraguan puros. These future
releases are currently resting in the aging room at Casa Favilli for a minimum of four years until ready for
Each Cosecha release will be a 6 x 52 toro with a pigtail cap. The total number of cigars produced will depend onthe crop yield of each year. The Cosecha 2012 has an MSPR of $21.95 and will be available in boxes of 10. Only 5,000 cigars have been produced and they will ship to retailers at the end of August 2017.
“This project has been five years in the making and we are proud to launch Cosecha 2012 at the IPCPR 2017. Enjoy it!” concluded Claudio Sgroi, President and Master Blender at Mombacho Cigars.
