The second of three Ediciones Limitadas due for release in 2013 has now been dispatched by Habanos S.A, in Cuba. The first shipment of the Hoyo de Monterrey Grand Epicure is now available across the UK.
Once again all of the tobacco for the Limited Edition releases has been specially aged in bales for a minimum of two years and the wrapper leaves have been selected from the top of the shade grown plant that is known to produce a darker shade once cured and a slight sweetness when smoked. They are also all dressed with a second band denoting the year of production and have all been produced in rare sizes.
