Gran Habano is only releasing 1,000 boxes of the new Corona, which is slated to retail for $9.

The cigar brand Blue In Green is getting a new size. Gran Habano, the company behind it, announced that a new Corona, measuring 6 inches by 44 ring gauge, will be joining the three other vitolas in the brand.

Blue In Green is rolled with Nicaraguan binder and filler and enrobed in a golden wrapper grown in Connecticut. The brand debuted in 2018 in three sizes: Churchill, Gran Robusto and Robusto.

Gran Habano is only releasing 1,000 boxes of the new cigar, which is slated to retail for $9. The company expects the Corona to begin shipping in August. (The above photo shows a sample box that reads “Gran Corona,” but Gran Habano confirmed that the size will simply be called Corona.)

Blue In Green is rolled at G.R. Tabacaleras Unidas, S.A. in Danlí, Honduras, a cigar factory that was founded in 1998 by George Rico’s father, Guillermo. In 2003, the father-son team launched the Gran Habano brand, and in 2007, the Gran Habano 3 Siglos Gran Corona was rated 92 points, earning a place on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2007 list.
