San Cristóbal Adds New Sizes

San Cristóbal Adds New Sizes
Three new sizes mark the first extension of the San Cristóbal De La Habana line since the Cuban brand's launch in 1999. The expansion consists of the Muralla, a 7 1/8 inch by 54 ring gauge torpedo; the Mercaderes, 6 1/2 inches by 48 ring; and the 5 1/4 by 43 Oficios. Each size is named after a historical street in Old Havana.

The new brand is completely unrelated to the discontinued prerevolution brand of the same name.
