British American Tobacco International is adding a new vitola to its Dunhill Aged Series brand. The Calatas will become the twelfth frontmark in the series and will be a petite corona in a 4 x 42. The Calatas will become the smallest offering in the Dunhill Aged Series line and be sold in tins of four.  Cigar Aficionado had some details on this new line extension.

The Dunhill Aged Series is one of two core line offerings by Dunhill Cigars (the other cigar being the Dunhill Signed Range). The products are distributed by General Cigar Company.  The Dunhill Aged Series is a Connecticut Shade offering with Dominican tobaccos.

Dunhill has become an active brand in the past six months.  Late last year, the company released the limited edition Dunhill Aged Reserva 2003.  Earlier this year, a 6 x 60 vitola was added to the Dunhill Aged Series line.

The new size will launch at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show this month and is scheduled for release in September.  The tin will have an SRP of $19.99 for the four cigars.
