At the 2018 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) international trade show and convention, cigar wholesaler Santa Clara, Inc. will be showcasing two new exclusives for attending retailers–Joya de Nicaragua Clásico and Crafted by Jaime Garcia. Santa Clara, Inc. will be exclusively showcasing and distributing both of these newly-introduced premium cigar offerings at this year’s show.
Joya de Nicaragua Clásico is a contemporary take on the original Joya de Nicaragua cigar released nearly 50 years ago. It captures the original cigar’s spirited essence though an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and lush tobaccos. This cigar will be available in six different vitolas: Churchill (6 7/8 x 48), Consul (4 1/2 x 52), No. 6 (6 x 41), Senorita (5 1/2 x 34), Toro (6 x 50), and Torpedo (6 x 52). It will be sold at an affordable price point of $5.50 to $9.50 per cigar.
Crafted by Jaime Garcia is the newest addition to Santa Clara’s Crafted Series and its second IPCPR 2018 exclusive. This cigar was blended by Jaime Garcia, the son of Don ‘Pepin’ Garcia, known throughout the cigar industry for his blending skills. Crafted by Jaime Garcia is hand-rolled by the artisans at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. This cigar has a fiery Habano Rosado wrapper and full-flavored tobaccos that create a spicy, complex profile. This cigar is presented in three vitolas: Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 52), and Toro Gordo (6 x 60).
