Gran Habano Cigars has announced a new project known as the Gran Habano No.7. It’s a limited-production cigar that is intended to be a stronger offering than the other Corojo offering, the Gran Habano No. 5. The cigar is not scheduled for release until January 24th.
This is a project that Gran Habano says has been in the works for many years. The Gran Habano No. 7 is a Nicaraguan puro highlighted by a Corojo wrapper from the Jalapa region of Nicaragua. Nicaraguan Corojo tobaccos also make up the binder and filler. The cigar is being released in one size – a 6 x 54 Toro. Production is being limited to 16,000 cigars for 2024. In addition, there will be 1,000 limited edition ten-count leather cases offered.
“Unfortunately, due to the limited supply of tobacco leaves available for this blend, we can only produce about 16,000 cigars per year,” said George Rico, President of Gran Habano Cigars, in a press release. “We are thrilled to finally release the Corojo No. 7 blend to our loyal customers and cigar enthusiasts around the world. This blend has been a labor of love, and we are confident that it will exceed expectations.”
Pricing has not been set as of yet. While the cigar is not slated for release until 2024, it is expected Gran Habano will offer the cigar to retailers at the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show opening July 7, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
