If you find yourself in Paris today, try to stop in a local tobacconist. Cigar retailers in France have put out their first shipments of the El Rey del Mundo L’Epoque, a Regional Edition Cuban smoke made just for the French market. As indicated on the secondary band, this particular cigar was meant to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Coprova, France’s official distributor of Cuban cigars. The 50-year mark actually passed in 2020, so like many Cuban releases, this El Rey del Mundo is running a little late.

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 has a suggested retail price of 26.50 euros, 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 delayed Regional Edition that celebrated Coprova’s 50th anniversary
