At the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, Ian Reith’s Dapper Cigar Company made available its Cubo Sumatra line. This is a cigar that joins the Cubo Maduro and Cubo Claro offerings by Dapper.
According to Reith, the Cubo Sumatra was technically released five years ago as the first offering under the Cubo brand. Now Reith is revisiting the release. The blend is highlighted by an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Connecticut Broadleaf fillers. The cigars are available in four sizes: Corona, Robusto, Toro, and Gordo. The Corona and Robusto are available in 25-count boxes while the Toro and Gordo are available in 15-count boxes. Both sized boxes are natural wood, full-dressed with a hinged top.
Production is handled at Nicaragua America Cigars, S.A. (NACSA) in Estelí, Nicaragua under the watchful eye of Raul Disla. The cigar is described as medium plus in flavor and medium/medium plus in strength.
