El Rey Del Mundo la Reina Cigar For Sale
El Rey Del Mundo la Reina Cigar For Sale is the latest Regional Edition created exclusively for the UK.
Handmade in a Laguito No. 1 vitola, La Reina measures 192 mm in length by a ring gauge of 38, a long and slim smoke packed with plenty of deep and well-balanced aromas. This size was invented by Eduardo Rivera and was the first to be gifted to President Fidel Castro back in 1963, almost two decades before being commercially introduced with the Cohiba Lanceros.
The El Rey del Mundo La Reina was manufactured at the El Laguito factory, which is known for producing habanos for some of the most premium Cuban cigar brands on the market, like Cohiba. A total of 24 Cuban Cigars are presented in three layers of 8 inside a beautiful boite nature box.
Length: 7 1/2″
Ring Gauge: 38
Packaging: 1 single cigar
The El Rey del Mundo La Reina UK Regional Edition 2018 was rated #7 by Cigar Journals Top 25: Cigar of the Year 2020.
The cigars measure 7 1/2” (192mm) x 38 ring gauge and are presented in SBN boxes of 24. Each cigar is finished with a signature pigtail, synonymous with the Laguito No. 1 vitola and all have been rolled at the world famous El Laguito factory in Havana, the spiritual home for this iconic size.
The size was created by Eduardo Rivera and the first to be offered to President Fidel Castro in 1963, almost two decades before it was commercially launched and made available as the Cohiba Lanceros in 1982.
Today the most qualified and skilled technicians for this challenging size remain at the factory and for this reason, the Cuban Cigar Industry decided to locate all of the La Reina production at the prestigious El Laguito factory. We believe this is a first for any Habanos Regional Edition.
UK REGIONAL EDITIONS
Since 2005, the companies that normally distribute Habano cigars in different territories around the world have been invited by Habanos SA to bid for the chance to create their own sizes in less well known Habanos brands. These are then made in limited quantities for sale only in their own markets. These cigars are known as Regional Editions.
To qualify being called a Regional Edition cigar they must be of limited production in a standard Habanos vitola (size) that is new to that particular brand. They must only be sold to customers in the distributors area and since 2006 have been available in individually numbered boxes with each cigar having a second band. The second band for cigars heading to the UK market used to read “Exclusivo Reino Unido” (Exclusive to United Kingdom) but since 2011 has been changed to “Exclusivo Gran Bretana” (Exclusive to Great Britain)
