|The 5 1/8 x 54 format of the Elogio Robusto Limitada
will now be coming to the Serie LSV and Serie Habano lines
Elogio will be adding a new 5 1/8 x 54 vitola known as the Robusto Especial to both its core LSV and Habano lines. Information on this announcement was made on the company’s Facebook page.
At the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show, Elogio introduced its Robusto Limitada as a part of its Limitada line (the company had previously introduced a Salomon with a similar blend). The Robusto Limitada is a 5 1/8 x 54 vitola with a pig-tail cap and covered foot. An analogous vitola now will be added to both the Serie LSV and Serie Habano lines.
The LSV line consists of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The Habano is a Nicaraguan puro. Both lines already contain a 5 x 50 robusto
