New Limited Edition Celebrating the Chinese New Year Hits the Market This Month
VegaFina is shipping its Chinese New Year 2023, special-edition cigar, celebrating the Year of the Rabbit.
The VegaFina Year of the Rabbit 2023 is a 6 x 50 torpedo ($12) featuring a blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Ecuador.
It comes in 16-count specially produced red and gold lacquered boxes, with the cigars arranged in two blocks of eight – the Chinese lucky number.
In addition to carrying the brand’s standard cigar band, each cigar in this year’s offering features a band at the foot of the cigar that matches the box design. Each box is individually numbered.
“We are inviting adult U.S. cigar enthusiasts to be part of this special VegaFina holiday tradition with a limited production of 1,500 boxes of VegaFina Classic Year of the Rabbit 2023 made for the U.S. market,” Rafael Nodal, head of product capability, said in a press release.
The Year of the Rabbit will be available to retailers in the U.S. this month and Altadis U.S.A. plans to showcase the product at the upcoming 2023 TPE convention in February.
