Casa Turrent Adds New Sizes to its 1880 Lines

Mexican cigarmaker Casa Turrent is expanding its 1880 series by adding four more sizes to each of its four 1880 lines. After debuting at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas on July 9, the new cigars will start shipping in August and will be staggered into the market throughout the rest of 2021.

Originally introduced in 2017 as a single toro size (now rebranded as Edicíon Limitada,) the 1880 was expanded to four new blends last year, all in a 6 ½ inch by 55 ring toro: Claro, Colorado, Oscuro, and Maduro.

All four blends in the series will be getting a Lancero, measuring 7 1/2 by 40 ($16.80); followed by the Robusto, 5 1/4 by 55 ($16.20) in September; Perfecto, 5 1/2 by 54 ($16.60) in October; and Short Robusto, 4 3/4 by 52 ($13.80) in November. All four versions of each size will ship in boxes of ten.

Oscuro is made entirely of Mexican Habano Criollo San Andrés tobacco, except for the Mexican Negro San Andrés binder.

Maduro combines a near-black Negro San Andrés maduro wrapper with Habano Criollo San Andrés binder and filler tobacco from Nicaragua and Mexico.

All the Mexican tobaccos used were grown by the Turrents.

Distribution for the cigars in the U.S. will be handled by Sutliff Tobacco Co. The agreement was signed back in November 2020 and goes into effect after the trade show.
