While the photo here depicts a box of last year’s Toro, the packaging for the Corona Gorda will be identical.

The Miami-made Cohiba Serie M, which debuted last year, is getting a new size—Corona Gorda. At 6 1/2 inches by 48 ring gauge, the pigtailed smoke will retail for $29.99, or $299.90 per 10-count box. The cigars are scheduled to ship to retailers on April 4.

When the limited-edition Toro came out last April, it marked the first time that a Cohiba from General Cigar Co. had been produced in Miami. The blend for the upcoming Corona Gorda is the same as last year’s Toro: Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and filler of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobacco.

Like the first release, the Corona Gordas are rolled at the El Titán de Bronze factory in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood. The cigar’s signature fantail cap and closed foot are hallmarks of the factory’s style. 

The United States is now the fourth country where General makes the Cohiba brand, as there are non-Cuban Cohiba cigars made in the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Nicaragua

Only 5,000 boxes of the Corona Gorda will be produced.
