La Sirena Cigars will be adding a 7 1/4 x 56 salomon vitola as a part of its core line offering.  The cigar will make its debut at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.   The new cigar will be called the La Sirena Dubloon.  Information on this offering was provided to Cigar Coop via a press release.

The La Sirena Dubloon. will use a Habano Oscuro wrapper.  This is the same wrapper that was used on the 9 1/4 inch long La Sirena A.  It will mark only the second La Sirena to use the Habano Oscuro wrapper as the remainder of the core line blend utilizes Connecticut Broadleaf.

The press release provided some addition information on the background for the name.

In a recent expedition to Lake Nicaragua, which archeologists feel was once a large bay alongside the Pacific Ocean, a discovery was made. The dangerous mission to find treasures of the mermaid was met by sharks and other seemingly out of place aquatic animals. On the last day, in one of the deepest parts of the lake a cave was located with treasures of the mermaid.  

Among these treasures was the Dubloon, a 7.25 x 56 Salomon. The name comes from the Spanish coins that surrounded this new rare size. The rarest of all Dubloons, was one that featured a distinctive 8 stamped into it.

The cigar will be a limited production release in which 500 boxes of 8 will be produced (tied in with the “8” of the Dubloon coin).  It will carry an MSRP of $12.00.

Here are the particulars of the La Sirena Dubloon:
