This month, you may notice AJ Fernandez’s New World Puro Especial will have a new look. The cigar isn’t changing, but the company has begun rolling out a new band and box design. The idea with the revamped design was to have a consistent scheme with the other three blends under the New World brand, yet still make the Puro Especial stand out.

The New World Puro Especial made its debut at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show. The cigar is a Nicaraguan puro highlighted by a Criollo ’98 wrapper. It is considered the boldest of the four blends under the New World brand. The cigar is available in four sizes  Robusto (5 1/2 x 52); Short Churchill (6 x 48); Toro (6 1/2 x 52); and Gordo (6 x 58). The cigars are packaged in 20-count boxes.

The other three blends under New World (New World Oscuro, New World Connecticut, and New World Cameroon Selection) are not changing design.

The revamped New World Puro Especial is expected to be showcased at the 2021 PCA Trade Show opening in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 10th.
