New Tubes for Cuban Cigars
Posted: November 24, 2010
Since 2009, Habanos S.A., the worldwide distributor of Cuban cigars, has made a strong effort to put many of its classic and newer sizes in tubes. The addition of tubes (also known as tubos) to the portfolio not only render the cigars portable, but also add a bit of flash to some of the more familiar Cuban brands.
Classic vitolas such as the Punch Punch, Bolivar Royal Corona, Romeo y Julieta Churchill, H. Upmann Magnum 46 and the entire Cohiba Siglo Series are now packaged in attractive, streamlined aluminum tubes.
For those cigars already offered in tubes, Habanos has updated the look of some of its older designs with glossy enamels and sleeker formats. The Montecristo Petit Tubos, for example was once offered in beige tubes with a screw-cap bottom.
Habanos recently modernized the Montecristo brand with bright yellow "lipstick" style pull-top tubes. Montecristo first used this style for its Edmundo size and has now adopted it for the Petit Edmundo, Petit Tubos, Tubos and most of the Montecristo Open line.
