The Latitude Zero brand has been around for a few years, but it has, until now, been only available at Cigars International. We actually reviewed the original line back in 2015 here. Now the brand will be getting national distribution by way of Meier and Dutch along with a new blend. The name and blend are made to honor Ecuador’s tobacco growing regions.
Latitude Zero takes its name from Ecuador, an homage to their supplier Oliva Tobacco Company’s major growing area and the origin of the gorgeous wrapper leaf gracing their new premium brand. A R13E grade (Angel’s Cut) Habano Ecuador wrapper from 2011 that’s easily the finest I’ve ever seen. Inside, a bold cocktail of vintage 2010, Nicaraguan long-fillers all from a farm in Esteli dubbed ‘The Jewel.’
