Carrillo: It's the pyramid, a large torpedo.

CA: What is your largest size of La Gloria in terms of volume?

Carrillo: The Wavell.

Carrillo: $80 a box retail.

CA: In the Dominican Republic, what is your largest selling cigar size?

Carrillo: Everything we make in the Dominican Republic is for the United States, so it would be the Churchill. We also sell a lot of the Charlemagne and the torpedo. We have 10 people making torpedos in the Dominican Republic.
