Tarazona Cigars has announced a planned line extension under the Caraballo828 Silverback Edición Limitada line known as The Benjamins will begin shipping in March. The Benjamins adds a 6 x 52 Torpedo offering into the Caraballo828 Silverback. This was a vitola that was scheduled to be released in June 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic was pushed back until now.
The Benjamins joins The Sterling (a 5 x 50 perfecto) as the offerings in the limited production Caraballo828 Silverback line. The cigar features a San Andres wrapper over Nicaraguan Jalapa binder and a filler consisting of tobaccos from the Condega and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua. The cigars are produced at Tabacalera Papito Cigars in Estelí, Nicaragua under the supervision of Juan “Papito” Gomez.
Pricing is for The Benjamins at $15.00 per cigar.
Prior to the March launch, the Benjamins will soft-launch at Cigar Life in Lakeland, FL later this month.
