Sotolongo Cigars, the partnership between Grace Sotolongo and Christian Eiroa is getting ready to launch its second blend. The Hechicera Maduro s set to make its debut at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show with plans for the cigar to land at retailers this August.
Sotolongo Cigars was launched almost a year ago and became the sixth company under Christian Eiroa’s CLE Cigar Company (formerly known as Fabricas Unidas) umbrella. Sotolongo Cigars launched its first brand, Hechicera last Fall – which was a Nicaraguan puro. Hechicera is named for a sorceress who with her beauty and charm captivates and enchants the affection of people.
The Hechicera Maduro will also feature a Nicaraguan blend, but will be wrapped with a San Andres Maduro wrapper. The Maduro will be launched in the same frontmarks as the original Hechicera. Finally, like the original Hechicera, the Hechicera Maduro features art work on the packaging done by Nimoska Perez Castellon, an artist friend of Sotolongo.
In announcing the Hechicera Maduro, Grace Sotolongo said, “The Hechicera Maduro is meant to haul inn Maduro enthusiasts, while still appealing the masses.”
At a glance, here is a look at the Hechicera Maduro:
