2020 Habanos new releases

News Back

Every February at the Habanos Festival in Havana, cigars planned for release throughout the year are showcased at a series of prestigious events.

Below is a list of all the announced Havana cigars that we have to look forward to in the coming months.

However, a friendly word of caution, when reviewing this list and deciding which ones you want to try first, patience is advised. These cigars currently have no launch dates and, with everything that is currently going on in the world, delay seems unavoidable. Naturally, we will keep you posted as and when more information becomes available.

 

Romeo y Julieta Línea de Oro

The iconic brand is 145 years old in 2020, and what better way to celebrate than with the introduction of an entirely new línea? The new cigars will have a medium to full flavour, a shade richer than the classic medium bodied Romeo y Julieta taste. Three new vitolas have been confirmed.

Limited Edition

Limited Editions are made by the most celebrated brands in Havana, in rare sizes, using dark coloured wrapper leaves and all of the tobacco is aged for a minimum of two years before use.  The production run for each cigar takes place within a limited period, usually during the year for which it is designated.

In 2020 there will be just one Limited Edition, rather than the more usual three.

Reserva

This is the first time that Bolívar has been selected to create a Reserva and it is perhaps no surprise that they have chosen their most iconic vitola (size) to do so: The Belicoso Fino.

The Reserva classification signifies that all the tobacco used has been aged in bales for three years before being rolled into cigars. The leaves used for this particular release were all harvested in 2016.

For all Habanos Reservas a total of 100,000 cigars are made for the world market and they are presented in 5,000 numbered lacquered boxes each containing 20 cigars.
