Havana Q is described as being a Cubanesque cigar and a cousin of the value-priced line Quorum. Havana Q is also a value line but comes in larger ring gauges than Quorum. They come in vacuum-sealed humi-bags of 20 and will be sold at brick and mortar shops including very small locations.
Havana Q is rolled at J.C. Newman’s PESNA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. The blend uses a genuine Havana-seed wrapper grown by the Oliva family on the aluvial plains at the foot of the Cotuguay Mountains in the renowned Guayas tobacco-growing region of Ecuador. The special soil and climate there are comparable to the famed Vinales Valley in the Pinar del Rio province in Cuba.
“We wanted to bring the essence of Cuba to consumers without breaking the bank,” said Drew Newman. “With larger sizes and convenient humi-bag packaging, all varieties of smokers will find something they like in Havana Q.”
Havan Q comes in four sizes: 6″x 60 – Double Grande, 5″ x 56 – Double Robusto, 6″ x 54 – Double Toro, 7″ x 52 – Double Churchill. It will ship later this month.
