Número Uno comes in only one vitola, a 6 5/8 inch by 44 ring gauge lonsdale.

What once was a special cigar meant only for Nicaraguan ambassadors to personally hand to world leaders will soon be a smoke anyone can purchase.

The new cigar from Joya de Nicaragua is called Número Uno, and it was originally made as a unique gift for diplomatic purposes. Last year, though, the company started to offer the cigar at events, and this fall it will start shipping to cigar shops nationwide, albeit on a limited basis.

Número Uno comes in only one vitola, a 6 5/8 inch by 44 ring gauge lonsdale that sports a fantail cap dubbed L’Ambassadeur. Both the binder and filler are all Nicaraguan tobaccos, while the wrapper is a lightly hued, Connecticut-seed leaf grown under the cloudy skies of Ecuador.

The Número Uno L’Ambassadeur will carry a suggested retail price of $15 and come in 25-count boxes. Only 1,500 boxes will be made available globally.
