If you find yourself in Malaysia and have a spare $56 to spend on a Cuban cigar, pick up the San Cristobal de La Habana Harimau Malaya, a Regional Edition cigar made exclusively for the Southeast Asian country. It’s Malaysia’s first Regional smoke and measures 5 1/8 inches by 55 ring gauge, which is the same size as the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill (known as Montescos in Cuban cigar factories).

The Harimau Malayas come in boxes of 10 and retail for HK$438 each, or about $56. Only 8,888 boxes were produced. Although launched yesterday, this cigar is technically a 2020 release, and named after the Malayan tiger, which is depicted on the protective outer box.
