Royal Agio Cigars USA has announced it is added two lines under its San Pedro de Macorís brand – the San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua and the San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown. The two new lines will officially be launched at the 2019 Tobacco Products Expo (TPE) Trade Show opening February 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper while the San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown utilizes a sun-grown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Both lines will be available in 3 sizes: Perla (4 1/8 x 40, $4.75), Corona (5 7/8 x 42, SRP $5.00), and Robusto (5 1/8 x 52, SRP $5.50). Each of the three sizes is presented in 20-count boxes.
The San Pedro de Macorís brand made its debut at the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show. At the time, the cigar was released with two blends: Ecuador (Ecuadorian grown Connecticut Shade wrapper) and Brazil (Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper). The brand was intended to offer a premium hand-made offering from Royal Agio at a value price. The cigar is named for Royal Agio’s factory in the Dominican Republic.
Francisco Batista, Premium Cigar Master Blender, commented in a press release, “Like the blend releases last year, the San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua and Sun Grown blends continue to directly reflect the local way of life in this small town, delivering extraordinary enjoyment for the money. Everything here is about creating the best everyday experiences possible, no matter what the occasion, and I proudly speak for the entire factory family when I tell you that these new blends will surprise you!”
The San Pedro de Macorís Nicaragua and San Pedro de Macorís Sun Grown are expected to ship to U.S. retailers in early April 2019.
