At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Ortega Premium Cigars showcased their latest release – the long awaited Ortega Serie D Black.
The Serie D Black is a new blend that has been branded under Ortega Serie D line. Company President Eddie Ortega told us that the Serie D Black falls somewhere in between the Serie D Natural (Medium) and Serie D Maduro (Full). It also introduces a rounded cigar into the Serie D line – which had been all-box pressed up until this release.
While the Serie D Black was the only new product showcased by Ortega Premium Cigars, 2014 has proven to be a busy year for the company. Earlier this year, the new HeavyDuty line was launched – a line geared at value-priced large ring gauge cigars. Ortega has also been involving on a crowd sourced cigar project called The Ortega Project.
