  • Vitola: Montesco
  • Ring gauge: 55

Regalos

Regalos

  • Year: 2007
  • Flavour: Light
  • Vitola: Regalos
  • Ring gauge: 46
  • Length: 5 ⅜ Inches / 137mm
  • The Spanish word “regalos” translates to English as “gifts” and these cigars, a unique size within the Havana cigar portfolio, would certainly make a wonderful gift today for the discerning cigar smoker as they are now quite hard to find. The dark sweet wrapper was a hallmark of this cigar.
Pirámide

  • Flavour: Light
  • Vitola: Pirámide
  • Ring gauge: 52
  • Length: 6 ⅛ Inches / 156mm

  • Year: 2004
  • Flavour: Light
  • Vitola: Gordito
  • Ring gauge: 50
  • Length: 5 ½ Inches / 141mm

  • Flavour: Light
  • Vitola: Gran Corona
  • Ring gauge: 47

Particulares

Particulares

  • Year: 2001
  • Flavour: Light
  • Vitola: Gran Corona
  • Ring gauge: 47
  • Length: 9 ¼ Inches / 235mm
  • The only one of the original releases to be remade and released. However, telling the two releases apart is straightforward enough as the 2001 editions include the date on the second ‘Edicion Limitada’ band. All Limited Editions from this point onward carry the date on this second band.
