MoyaRuiz Cigars has announced it will release the La Jugada Claro. The cigar is significant for MoyaRuiz in that it is the company’s first shade grown Connecticut Shade offering.

La Jugada Claro will feature an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar will be released in three sizes No.4 (5 1/2 x 50), No. 1 (6 1/2 x 48), and No. 8 (6 1/8 x 58). Each of the three sizes will be packaged in 20 count boxes with pricing ranging from $8.49 to $10.49.


La Jugada was the first brand that was released by MoyaRuiz Cigars. It joins the La Jugada Prieto (a San Andres Maduro) and the La Jugada Habano (an Ecuadorian Habano) offering. The company also released the unique limited edition La Jugada Nunchuck.  La Jugada means “the move” or “the play” and it stems from co-founders Danny Moya and Nelson Ruiz’s love of games such as dominoes and poker.

As with all MoyaRuiz Cigars, the La Jugada Claro will be made at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory.
