A San Cristobal Just For Cuba
San Cristobal de La Habana La Cabaña measures 6 1/8 inches by 50 ring gauge and comes in 10-count boxes. Only 10,000 boxes were produced.

There’s a new Regional Edition San Cristobal de La Habana and it was made exclusively for Cuba. Called La Cabaña, the 6 1/8 inch by 50 ring gauge cigar comes in 10-count boxes. Only 10,000 boxes were produced. According to Habanos S.A., the La Cabañas are “now available in the market.”

The new La Cabaña marks the first time that the San Cristobal de la Habana brand has ever been used in the Regional Edition program. This new smoke will be the sixth Regional Edition made just for Cuba. Cuban cigar shops—particularly the island’s Casa del Habano stores—are key shopping centers for people who collect Cuban cigars, and receive serious attention from cigar aficionados visiting the island.

This is turning into a very busy year for the San Cristobal de la Habana brand. To celebrate the brand’s 20th anniversary, Habanos created the 20 Aniversario, a cigar that measures 6 1/3 by 52 made especially for La Casa del Habano retail shops. It was announced earlier this year at the 2019 Habanos Festival but has yet to make its way to cigar stores.

The San Cristobal Prado, which was launched in 2018, began appearing in cigar shops around the world in 2019. The 5 by 50 belicoso was made for La Casa del Habano and Habanos Specialist retailers.

The most lavish presentation is the San Cristobal de la Habana 1519, an ornate humidor that commemorates the 500th anniversary of Havana, which is being celebrated this year. This package contains 100 cigars that measure 6 1/4 by 57 ring gauge. Habanos plans on making only 500 of these humidors, and there’s no word on when they’ll start appearing in the market.
