J Fuego is in the Valley of the Sun today and sat down with Cigar Brief earlier for a brief chat. Of the numerous new projects he is working on: the origen maduro, some new five pack ideas, perhaps the most exciting is his upcoming Ultra Premium to be debuted at the IPCPR later this year.
Fuego was pretty forthcoming with his information and had the following things to say about the Edicion de Familia:
- It will be a limited release to about 150 retailers
- Robusto cigars will come in glass tubos
- Each retailer will get five boxes of 10. There will be three new sizes (box-pressed toro, box-pressed bellicoso, and robusto tubo)
- The wrapper featured on the first release will be a 10 year aged Sun Grown Sumatran wrapper
- Every year following will most likely be different and combinations of the wrapper and filler will vary
