I’ve noticed that you can count on Estaban Carreras to introduce a new product at the year’s Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show. You can also count on them not announcing what that cigar is until the doors of the show open. Typically for its PCA show releases, Esteban Carreras has introduced a regular production cigar. In the case of the 2023 PCA Trade Show, Esteban Carreras opted to release a limited-production cigar called Taken from the Devil’s Hand Maduro. This is a Maduro counterpart to a regular production cigar that was introduced last year called Taken From the Devil’s Hand, which was the company’s first Corojo cigar.

While the Taken from the Devil’s Hand Maduro won’t be a one-and-done release, it will be a limited production release. The Maduro, like the original Taken from the Devil’s Hand, features an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper. In the case of the Maduro, the wrapper has been aged an extra two years. The remainder of the blend consists of all-Nicaraguan tobacco for the binder and filler. It’s being launched in three sizes: Bootlit (4 3/4 x 46, SRP $8.00), Toro (6 x 50, SRP $11.50), and Sixty (6 x 60, SRP $13.00). Both the Toro and Sixty are packaged in 20-count boxes, while the Bootlit will come in 32-count boxes.
