Sosa Cigars was not at the 2016 IPCPR, but the company has certainly been busy with some new releases. This week, the company launched an unique offshoot of the Auric Perfectum line called the Sosa Auric Perfectum Spiced. With the Sosa Auric, it introduces both a barber-pole wrapped cigar and a blend cured with four types of Bourbon Whiskey.
As with the regular Sosa Auric Perfectum line, the Spiced line is made at the Tabacalera Aroma de Jalapa, S.A. factory and incorporates tobacco from its farm. The cigar features a combination of Habano and Connecticut leaf that is dual-wrapped barber-pole style. The binder and filler consist of all Nicaraguan tobacco. The tobacco is then cured with four types of Bourbon whiskey: honey tea, cinnamon, cherry, and then standard bourbon whiskey. Pricing is $35.00 – $37.00 per five pack
The Sosa Auric Perfectum Spiced is available in four sizes: Robusto, Toro, Torpedo, and Churchill.
Over the past year Antillian Cigar Company, the parent company of Sosa Cigars has released some other barber-pole offerings. Last year the company launched its Macabi USA Peppermint Stick. In addition, this week the company also launched the Sosa Underground Delphic Dual Wrapper.
