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.
General Cigar is adding a new line, and its first limited edition, to the El Rey del Mundo brand El Rey del Mundo by AJ. The new addition comes in just one size, a box-pressed 6 x 52 toro and will start shipping later this month. The blend is created by AJ Fernandez, frequent collaborator with General Cigar. He is also responsible for blending cigars in their Diesel, Ramon Allones, and Hoyo brands.
ough from the first puff until the last and became even stronger when retrohaling. Notes of cinnamon, oak, and an odd floral end gave just enough a transition to keep things interesting. If you enjoy a full-bodied pepper bomb as I do, you are going to love this cigar." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
"As soon as I lit this cigar, I could taste sweetness and roasted nuts. Almost like honey roasted peanuts. As I continued to indulge, a little white pepper was introduced, adding a little complexity to the cigar. The sweetness eventually gave way to the pepper notes, only to return as the cigar began to wind down. Would I smoke this cigar again? Absolutely! I enjoyed the experience so much I would have immediately smoked another one upon setting this one down. " -Jai P. (Jai)
