The relaunch comes after a Zoom call uncovered an opportunity to purchase 7-year-old Ecuadorian wrapper leaf from A.S.P. Enterprises, a family-owned tobacco farm in Ecuador.
“This is a wrapper leaf that had been aged for seven years and was selected for some luxury lines,” Oliver Nivaud of United Cigars said in a statement. “Fortunately for us, the wrapper was only big enough for a short vitola, so it was perfect for our Rothschild.”
The La Mezcla Cubana Rothschild comes in 50-count boxes ($299.99) and measures 4.5 x 54 which the brand says offers a mild-to medium profile. The 7-year-old wrapper is Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade with an Indonesian binder. Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Pennsylvanian leaves are used in the filler along with a proprietary blend by Magia Cubana. It runs $5.99 a cigar.
United Cigars has begun taking orders and the cigars should start shipping to retailers mid-February.
