La Sirena Aniversario ships in 10-count boxes and production is limited to 1,000 cigars.

The boutique cigar brand La Sirena—known for its small production and massive cigar bands—has released a small production run of cigars celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary.

La Sirena Aniversario, which is shipping now, is a one-size smoke measuring 5 3/4 inches long with a 54 ring gauge. The cigars come in purple boxes of 10, with a suggested retail price of $19 per cigar. Production is being limited to 1,000 cigars, or 100 boxes.

Unlike the original La Sirena, which is rolled in Estelí, Nicaragua, at Tabacalera La Zona S.A., this new anniversary smoke is made in San Andrés, Mexico by the Turrent family, at Nueva Matacapan de Tabacos S.A. de C.V.

The Aniversario blend is quite heavy on Mexican tobaccos, with a Mexican wrapper from the San Andrés Valley, binder from Mexico, and a filler blend incorporating leaves from Mexico, Brazil, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

The factory isn’t all that’s new with this smoke. The cigar band is quite diminutive compared to other La Sirenas, and its blue in color with a mermaid. (Sirena is the Spanish word for mermaid.) The band also has the initials AFD, for La Sirena brand owner Arielle Ditkowich.

La Sirena debuted in 2009 and has five sizes.
