News | La Hoja Edicion Clasica Maduro 1962

The Edicion Clasica Maduro 1962 features similar Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan tobaccos found in the binder and filler of the Edicion Clasica Corojo. What sets the Edicion Clasica Maduro apart, says J Carlos Gomez, Executive VP at La Hoja Cigars, is the carefully selected Mexican San Andreas Maduro wrapper.“The San Andreas Maduro wrapper gives this blend a sweet and earthy touch,” said Gomez, “but in order for us to incorporate this into a blend that meets La Hoja quality standards, we had to be incredibly discerning about the other leaves to make sure they complement the wrapper.”

The danger of San Andreas Maduro wrappers, Gomez says, is “that particular leaf can create a smoke that is too dry and that parches the smoker. We’ve blended this cigar specifically to offer the flavor of San Andreas but with considerable balance as well.”
Upon release, Edicion Clasica Maduro will be available in four sizes:

  1. Edicion Clasica Maduro No. 1: Robusto (5 ¼ x 52)
  2. Edicion Clasica Maduro No. 9: Toro (5 ¾ x 56)
  3. Edicion Clasica Maduro No. 6: Toro Gordo (6 x 60)
  4. Edicion Clasica Maduro No. 2: Belicoso (5 ¼ x 54)

“At La Hoja,” said Willie Flores, President of La Hoja Cigars, “tobacco is the conversation. We pride ourselves in our service to our fellow cigar smokers and stand by our promise to deliver a consistent product year after year so you can always remember and enjoy the cigar you fall in love with.”

After dozens of complex tasting trials and quality testing, the Edicion Clasica Maduro 1962 is ready for the discerning tastes of American cigar aficionados.  The Edicion Clasica Maduro 1962 will be arriving in retail stores across the country in late December 2014 and will be available for retail purchase between $11 and $13.50.
