Cigar News: New Line from Garcias/ Announced –

Cigars, maker of the 2012 Cigar Aficionado Cigar of the Year Flor de las Antillas, has announced a new cigar to be released later this year.

(Spanish for The Antiquity) is blended with filler tobaccos from three areas in Nicaragua—San Rafael, Las Quebradas and San Jose—all on farms privately owned by the Garcia family. It has a double binder, one of Nicaraguan criollo and one of Nicaraguan .

“Everything is grown by us except the wrapper,” says company vice president . The wrapper is an Ecuadoran Habano leaf.

The brand uses artwork from the 1870s and emphasizes history and heritage. It's the second cigar line in recent years to be branded with classic artwork. In 2012, the company released Flor de las Antillas, a Nicaraguan puro named for Cuba, the largest of the Greater Antilles islands. The Toro size of that line went on to receive high scores and accolades, including the top spot on our 2012 Top 25 Cigars of the Year list.

There is no set shipping date for Antiguedad, which is rolled at Cigars S.A., and will come in five, box-pressed vitolas with dimensions that the company has not shared. They'll come in boxes of 20. The prices are not yet finalized but will range between $6 and $10.
