Micallef Cigars is expanding its Reata line with the addition of two new cigar sizes: a Toro and Corona Extra. These two new sizes are in addition to the torpedo and Churchill vitolas that are already available on the market.
Reata is the name of a successful restaurant located in Fort Worth and Alpine, Texas, both also owned by Micallef Cigars’ founder Al Micallef. The name pays homage to the Reata ranch which was prominently featured in the 1950s film “Giant” starring Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson.
“Growing up, I loved movies, especially ‘Giant,'” Al Micallef shares. “The story uniquely symbolizes the strength, courage, and excitement of the wide-open west. When I named our first restaurant, I wanted to capture the spirit of Texas and the American frontier. The west was both romantic and wild. A time of rugged individualism and a sense anything is possible. That’s how I want people to feel when they smoke a Reata. I love that feeling!”
Reata is a mild to medium-bodied smoke. The cigar consists of a San Andrés Sumatra wrapper, Ecuadoran binder, and Nicaraguan filler. Reata Toro and Corona Extra will both be available in 25-count boxes. The suggested manufacturer’s retail price of a single Reata Toro is $11 while a single Reata Corona Extra is set at $10.50.
Reata is part of the Micallef Legacy line and is blended by the Gomez-Sanchez family. It is produced at the Micallef Cigars factory located in Estelí, Nicaragua.
