Reinado Unveil the Grand Empire Reserve Box-pressed stogie!

It’s not every day that a non-cuban cigar manufacturer worth taking note of releases a new line of cigars, so I feel it part of my duty to bring this news to you.

Reinado, famous over the pond for their Habanito and Torpedo vitola’s, have announced the release of their Grand Empire Reserve box-pressed cigar.

Reinado, who are a Nicaraguan brand, have enjoyed a growing reputation recently having received a rating of 91 for their Torpedo, and a 92 for the petit robusto Habanito from Cigar Journal. They will surely be looking to further lament their position as a top cigar brand and it seems the Grand Empire Reserve could be their ticket to playing with the big boys.

Wrapped in a beautiful dark Maduro wrapper, the cigar weighs in at an impressive 5″x 55 of pure unadulterated Nicaraguan tobacco leaf.

Reinado Grand Empire Reserve

REINADO® Unveils the Grand Empire Reserve at the 80th Annual IPCPR Convention and International Trade Show

Industry participants eagerly await the Grand Empire Reserve from REINADO

Oradell, NJ, July 03, 2012 –(– Following the success of the 92 rated Petite Corona known as the Habanito and the 91 rated Torpedo, REINADO will unveil the Grand Empire Reserve at the 80th Annual IPCPR Convention and International Trade Show in Orlando, Florida, in August, 2012.

The Grand Empire Reserve is a box pressed Robusto that incorporates a select habano maduro wrapper and an additional aged Nicaraguan filler which leverages REINADO’s signature fermentation process to provide even greater depth, richer undertones, and enhanced overall complexity for both the casual and the distinguished cigar smoker.

“The flavor profile of the Grand Empire Reserve was developed after extensive sampling to deliver a truly exceptional blend,” said Antonio Lam, owner of Cubanero Enterprises. “We believe the flavors and balanced strength developed through extending REINADO’s unique fermentation process along with the inclusion of the aged Nicaraguan filler will distinguish the Grand Empire Reserve from all other cigars on the market,” said Lam.

A single size called Elegidos meaning “chosen” is scheduled for release in August, 2012 followed by additional sizes.

Initial Specs:
• Size: 5 x 55 (Box Pressed)
• Wrapper: Nicaraguan Select Maduro
• Binder: Nicaragua
• Filler: Nicaragua
• Price: $9.95/cigar – 20ct boxes

“As demonstrated through the REINADO core product line and the introduction of the Grand Empire Reserve, we are dedicated to innovation and offering smokers quality choices of highly rated cigars,” said Lam.

The Grand Empire Reserve will be available through select retailers and, on a limited basis, directly through REINADO.
