The Elogio Excentrico is back, but this time its around to stay. For the fifth consecutive year, Elogio will release the Excentrico. For the past four years, Excentrico has been a one vitola, one and done release. With the 2016 Excentrico, it will become a full-fledged regular production line consisting of four vitolas. The new Excentrico by Elogio line will make its official debut at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
For the Excentrico by Elogio line, it will be based off the 2013 Elogio Excentrico No. 2 line. The line will now be offered in four sizes: Serie A (9 1/2 x 47), Belicosos (6 x 60), Corona Gorda (6 x 48), and Rosalita (4 x 40). While the line will use the same tobacco components as the No. 3, the tobaccos will come from different vintage crops.
The original Excentrico No. 2 was released as a 7 1/4 x 58 salomon – which was not one of the four sizes.
While the company has indicated this is a regular production line, production will still be done in limited quantities and Excentrico will be positioned as a line for the company’s premium accounts.
