La Unica 600

Gregory Mottola
Posted: April 9, 2007

This spring, J.C. Newman Cigar Co. will be adding a new size to its La Unica brand -- the No. 600, which will measure 6 inches by 50 ring gauge and retail for $4.95 per cigar.

The size is the first brand extension since La Unica was launched 20 years ago. The thick toro was created to commemorate the brand's switch from bundles to boxes, and also to accommodate lovers of the toro size. La Unica was first released as a bundle brand in 1986, but J.C. Newman recently announced that the cigars would now be packaged in wooden slide-lid boxes of 20. With the 600, La Unica will have six sizes in its portfolio. Made by Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia. in the Dominican Republic, the brand comes in Connecticut shade (natural) or Connecticut broadleaf (maduro) wrappers with all-Dominican binders and fillers.
