While France’s Cuban cigar distributor Coprova turned 50 in 2020, the company continues to celebrate the milestone with the El Rey del Mundo L’Epoque, a Regional Edition cigar made just for the country. According to Coprova, it will be released sometime this summer.

El Rey del Mundo L’Epoque

At 6 1/2 inches long by 54 ring gauge, the El Rey del Mundo L’Epoque has the same dimensions as the Montecristo Sublimes Edición Limitada 2008, the Cohiba Sublimes Edición Limitada 2004 and the Quai d’Orsay Capitolio, another French Regional Edition released in 2018. The size is known as a Sublimes in Cuban cigar factories.

The new L’Epoque comes in 10-count boxes and will retail for 26.50 euro, or about $28 per cigar. Only 6,000 boxes are being produced.

This follows France’s release of the Quai d’Orsay Clemenceau last year, another late-arrival Regional Edition meant to celebrate Coprova’s 50th anniversary. Like the Clemenceaus, a secondary band on every L’Epoque reminds us of the big five-decade milestone.
