Along with more than 70 companies from around the world, Habanos, S.A. will have a Virtual Stand at the Virtual Travel Retail Expo 2020. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is the first time ever the event will not be held in person. Habanos S.A. will be announcing a few new cigars. One of the main showcase attractions this year will be the Trinidad Robustos Extra. The cigar measures 6.1 inches (155mm) by 50 ring gauge. Released in special 14-count travel humidors. The Humidors will be available through Duty-Free and select Retail Channels.
Blend information for the Trinidad Robustos Extra has a wrapper, filler, and binder sourced from the Vuelta Abajo in the Pinar del Río region of Cuba. These Habanos are rolled by expert Cuban torcedores. All made by hand with long leaf filler.
Other cigars highlighted in the Virtual Release event include the new Romeo y Julieta Línea de Oro. Three new Vitolas will be released, Dianas, Nobles, and Hidalgos. The third release is the H. Upmann Magnum 56 Jar. The Magnum 56 Jar was initially a limited release last year at the Cannes Fair. Now it will be available as a regular production. No production totals were given for any of the releases at the Virtual Event. The event runs from October 12th until October 16th.
