The Guayacan Rojas Reserve, a value-priced Nicaraguan puro maduro is receiving two line extensions. At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Guayacan unveiled a new 5 x 50 Robusto size and new 6 x 52 Toro size – bringing the total number of vitolas to four.
It was at the 2015 IPCPR Trade Show, when Guayacan first launched the Guayacan Rojas Reserve line with a Nicaraguan Maduro wrapper. The line was the first Nicaraguan puro for Noel Rojas’ brand. The line is a premium value-priced line with all of the cigars below $7.00. Originally the line was launched in a 6 x 60 and a 7 x 70 vitola.
Over the past year, Guayacan has undergone several changes as a company. Last Fall, Rojas announced he was ending his agreement for House of Emilio (now Boutiques Unified) to handle Guayacan’s distribution. Rojas is not only a brand owner, but a factory owner. Last year, Rojas switched to a new factory, teaming up with Brandon Hayes of Renegade Cigars to open Tabacalera New Order of the Ages (Tabacalera NOA).
In addition to the Rojas Reserve Maduro line extensions, Guayacan also launched its first Connecticut Shade offering with the Rojas Reserve Connecticut.
