The long awaited Gonzo Santeria appears to be heading to retailers. Company president Steven Ysidron has indicated on both his company web-site and on a video posted on the company’s Facebook page that the cigar is shipping. The Gonzo Santeria marks the fourth cigar blend by Ysidron’s company to be released.
The Santeria is a small batch release. According to the company web-site, it will be released in three sizes with only 150 boxes of 50 being released per size.
Santeria is described as a “cult religion” that is found in the Caribbean. This was the inspiration behind the name and the cigar itself.
