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.
