Boutique Blends will be releasing its next installment in its Aging Room line. The Aging Room Quattro T59 will become the second box-pressed Aging Room Quattro.
Information on this blend was reported December 3rd edition of the Cigar Insider. Follow-up information was released in a press release on December 9th.
Cigar Insider originally reported Aging Room Quattro T59 was the winning blend from the Aging Room WildPack. Following that announcement, there was some confusion as to whether this was the winning blend from the WildPack competition or not – and whether the competition was closed. It turns out the T59 was a blend that was derived from the WildPack, but the voting in the competition continues for cigar enthusiasts to select a winning blend.
Aging Room WildPack is part of our strategy to involve the consumers
in our blending process. The selection of the new blend for the release of
the Quattro is only the beginning as we
continue to search for the next blend release with the help of the
consumers who continue to vote from the WildPack blends.”
Cary Bischoff of Boutique Blends also explained where the confusion came from:
In the Cigar Insider article Nodal described the cigar as a similar to the other box-pressed Aging Room, the Aging Room Quattro F55, but using an eight year old Dominican Criollo wrapper instead of Sumatra. The tobacco comes from growing partner Jochi Blanco’s farms and will be made at Tabacalera La Palma
Wrapper: Dominican Criollo
The vitolas of the Aging Room Quattro T59 mirror what was done on the Aging Room Quattro F55. Production of the T59 will be limited to 400,000 cigars.
