The new blend is produced in Danli, Honduras at the Oscar Valladares Tobacco & Company factory and features a barber pole wrapper made with Mexican San Andrés and Honduran-grown Connecticut tobacco. The double wrapper crowns a Honduran binder and a selection of Honduran filler tobaccos.
Leaf by Oscar Limited Edition 2018 is presented in 20-count bundles, with each cigar individually wrapped in a tobacco leaf. The blend is available in a 6 x 54 Toro ($212.99/bundle) and a 6 x 60 Gordo ($229.99/bundle). Both vitolas are launching exclusively on Cigora as a limited-time offering.
“I kept a special ‘Leaf by Oscar’ blend in aging for five years and always thought of its release as a way to introduce a completely new experience to the line,” Oscar Valladares said in a press release. “So when I had the chance to work with Cigora, I immediately knew the time was right to make this blend available.”
