Gran Habano announced a new size in the Persian King line, Type-Mod 60. During the pandemic, the company pause to reflect on where the company wanted to go next, granting owner George Rico the space and creativity to quietly work on a few of the projects that will be released later this year. The first of these is the Persian King Type-Mod 60 which features a very distinctive 6 x 60 pyramid-styled cigar on one end and tapered on the other, meaning the smoker can choose which end to start smoking it from. It is made with 100% Nicaraguan tobacco from their own farms.
