New York Connoisseur Edition No.2 -link from Cigar Inn Facebook

Altadis will be releasing the Montecristo New York Connoisseur Edition No.2.   This will be the second vitola in the Montecristo New York Connoisseur Edition that was launched last week.   The cigar will have its debut at a Exclusive Dinner at New York’s Cigar Inn.  Details were unveiled on Cigar Inn’s Facebook page.

The Montecristo Connoisseur Edition New York No. 2 will be in a box-press torpedo shape, joining the original 6 x 60 box-press Montecristo Connoisseur Edition New York. That original version was one of our highest rated cigars for 2012 scoring a 94.

New York only cigars began to surface late 2010.  Alec Bradley (Alec Bradley New York), La Aurora (Broadway and Broadway Maduro), and Gurkha (Para La Gente) have all released special cigars to be sold in New York only.   With
New York State retailers losing customers out of state (and online) due
to that state’s insane tobacco tax, these New York only cigars can
provide a much needed jolt to these brick and mortar retailers

The dinner will be held on July 17, 2012 at 7pm Cigar Inn’s 2nd Avenue store (located between 54th and 53rd Street.

Here are the particulars of the blend and vitola.
