In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Pacific Cigar Ltd, the Habanos distributor for Cuban cigars in the Asia Pacific region, has released the El Rey del Mundo Aniversario. It’s the regional-edition cigar for 2012 that was named for Pacific Cigar’s 20-year milestone, and also marks the first time that the Asian distributor has ever offered the El Rey del Mundo brand as a regional smoke.
Classified as a Geniales in Cuban cigar factories, the El Rey del Mundo Aniversario measures 5 7/8 inches long by 54 ring—a size not found in the brand’s portfolio. It comes packaged in boxes of 20 and retails for HK$280.00 per cigar (about $36.00).
According to Pacific Cigar, the Aniversarios have already started shipping throughout the region. Although slated as a 2012 release in order to coincide with the company’s anniversary, the cigar only began circulating this March.
