This month, Altadis U.S.A. will begin a widespread release of the Aging Room Pura Cepa. It’s a collaboration done between Boutique Blends and the Plasencia family – two strategic partners of Altadis U.S.A.
Word of the Aging Room Pure Cepa surfaced last month. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro produced at Plasencia. It utilizes tobaccos from the four main growing regions of Nicaragua: Condega, Estelí, Jalapa, and Ometepe. It is produced at the Plasencia S.A. factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
“I wanted a world-class cigar that ideally displayed the richness Nicaraguan soils can bring to quality tobaccos,” said the current head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA and co-founder of Boutique Blends Cigars in a press release. “With Pura Cepa, I strived to capture the very essence of the land’s core, and deliver a Nicaraguan puro blend for today’s most discerning smokers,” Nodal said.
The Aging Room Pura Cepa is available in three sizes (Rondo – 5 x 50, Mezzo 6 x 54, and Grande 6 1/2 x 56) – each packaged in 20 count boxes.
Pricing will range between $12.50 to $13.50 SRP.
Last year, Altadis U.S.A. and Boutique Blends entered into a strategic partnership that saw Altadis U.S.A. take over Boutique Blends’ distribution. As a part of the agreement, Boutique Blends co-founder Rafael Nodal took on a role within Altadis and Head of Product Capability. Altadis U.S.A. has partnered with Plasencia on several projects – including several releases for brands such as Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta.
