El Rey del Mundo is releasing a new line called “Shade Grown” in July. The line launches with two regular production sizes and one limited edition vitola. The cigar is rolled in Honduras at the HATSA factory. El Rey del Mundo Shade Grown is a Honduran puro that uses a Honduran-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper (a first for the brand), Honduran Jamastran binder, and Honduran filler from Copan and Jamastran for filler.The wrapper is said to get its complexity from the Honduran Talanga Valley soil.
El Rey del Mundo continues to grow by popular demand. With Shade Grown we are expanding the brand’s range with an everyday smoke that delivers on its promise of complexity. This is a satisfying, anytime smoke and we’re looking forward to sharing it with premium cigar enthusiasts across the country.
Cory Beardsley, assistant brand manager for El Rey del Mundo
