De Los Reyes Cigars is telling the stories of its next three volumes of its Saga Short Tales series. The company announced that Saga Short Tales Tomo 3 L.I.V., Tomo 4 L.O.V. and Tomo 5 L.A.V. is now in widespread distribution and will be showcased at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show.
Saga Short Tales is a series of short smokes, but each of the installments has a particular theme to it. The first installment, Tomo (Volume) 1 was called “Tales of High Priming” and it focused on a blend built around high priming tobaccos. For Tomo 2, “Tales of the Land: Cotui” builds a blend using a never-before-used wrapper grown in the Cotui region of the Dominican Republic.
For Tomo 3, 4, and 5, the stories adopt a Latin theme. Each of the volumes has an acronym of a Latin saying. At the same time, the cigars each focus on the incorporation of Piloto Cubano Mejorado tobacco into its blend.
