The welcome gala of Festival del Habano XXIII saw Habanos S.A. introduce a new vitola to its Montecristo Open line, the Montecristo Open Slam.  The Slam becomes the fifth vitola in the line.

The Slam size measures 52 x 142mm (52 x 5.6). Habanos S.A. has said the cigars will be packaged in 15 to 20-count units. No pricing or release dates have been given as yet.

The green banding and packaging used on the Open line is indicative of its  connections to golf. The other Open sizes are: Eagle (54 x 150 mm), Regata (46 x 135 mm length), Master (50 x 124 mm), and Junior (38 x 110 mm).

Festival del Habano XXIII takes place in Cuba from February 27 through March 3rd, 2023 in Havana, Cuba.
