Providencia Cigars has announced the release of Meritage. It’s a release that incorporates what Providencia says is a proprietary aromatic aging process. Meritage will be a cigar offered at events, but also will be made available to select retailers in limited quantities.

In a press release Jim Faber, founder of Providencia Cigars, explained, “The production process includes storing the tobacco leaves in a separate humidor in their Danlí, Honduras factory. The Meritage blend uses a local Honduran red wine for the aromatic process. The length of time used for the aging process is unspecified. The resulting sweet floral notes are something quite unique, yet subtle through the smoking experience.”

Meritage features a San Andres wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and ligero filler leaves. The cigar is available in one size – a 5 1/2 x 52 Torpedo.
