De Los Reyes has announced the seventh installment of its Saga Short Tales Collection. Dubbed Tomo VII – Tales of the Land Navarette, with this cigar the Reyes family pays tribute to the place where the family harvested the first crop of Piloto Cubano the Dominican Republic.
Navarrete is a city located just outside of the city of Santiago de los Caballeros in the Dominican Republic. It’s a place where the Reyes family still operates a farm today.
The cigar is a box-pressed 5 x 52 Robusto – marking the first installment of the Saga Short Tales series to use a box-pressed format. The blend features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper over a Dominican San Vincente binder and all Dominican fillers. Included in the fillers is Piloto Cubano, representing the tobacco the Reyes family first harvested from Navarrete. The fillers also utilize HVA and Criollo ’98.
As with each of the Saga Short Tales installments, the cigars are packaged in a book format. For Tomo VII, the book contains ten cigars. Each is priced at $9.30 per cigar
Back in 2016, De Los Reyes Cigars introduced its Saga Short Tales line. The concept behind the line is a series of unique smaller, sized cigars – each with a different blend, different vitola, and different theme. The themes in the Short Tales series each pay homage to the art of tobacco and/or tobacco making. This is the first installment to be showcased from the Saga Short Tales series in nearly three years. The previous installment, Tomo VI was our 2019 Cigar of the Year.
The cigar will be showcased at the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show scheduled to open July 10th in Las Vegas, Nevada. While the cigars are scheduled to ship in September, an exclusive soft-launch will be made available to the LG Cigar Club in San Jose, California.
