2012 Limited Edition from Cuba

Submitted by Oliver on March 7, 2012 – 4:55 amNo Comment

The well-known Edicion Limitada line that Cuban manufacturers are annually releasing at the annual Habanos Festival has remained a secret to the public this year. They shed some light on one cigar only, with so little information on it that the Cigar Aficionado staff decided to speak with executives from Habanos S.A. and get the details.

According to the executives, the line will come into the market in the end of September, and will consist of three LE cigars: the Partagás Serie C No. 3, H. Upmann Robusto and Montecristo 520. The three vitolas have the parejo size, or in other words, they have a cylindrical shape and are straight-sided. These cigars are thick which means smokers tend to preferring fatter cigars rather than thinner in both non-Cuban and Cuban cigar world.

The H. Upmann Robusto LE is a usual Cuban robusto being 7/8 inches long with a 50 ring gauge.

The Partagas Serie C No. 3 LE is an upgrade of an older vitola known as the C No. 3. Its length is 5 1/2 inches with a 48 ring gauge.

And the third cigar, the Montecristo 520 named in honor of the 520th anniversary of the discovery of tobacco in Cuba, has a vitola Maravillas No. 3. It measures 6 1/8 inches long and has a 55 ring gauge. The only vitola, except the new Montecristo LE 2012, that has the same ring gauge among Cuban cigars is Romeo Y Julieta Wide Churchills .

Well, let’s hope we’ll have enough patient  to wait for the new limitadas to come to our town, and sample them. I’m sure these are good cigars, and some of them may even get into the regular production line. Time will show.
