Maya Selva Cigars – under its Flor de Selva brand – has been releasing special edition cigars to celebrate the Chinese New Year since 2018. This year the new release is been officially introduced at Intertabac 2023.
The new limited-edition Año del Dragón has a design that brings together traditional Chinese patterns and Mayan hieroglyphics. In both the Chinese and the Mayan cultures, animal symbolism and iconography play a crucial role in their spirituality. The ancient Maya believed we each have a “nahual” — a spirit animal that guides us through life. Meanwhile, according to the Chinese calendar, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon. The Dragon is the most powerful sign, symbolizing: power, strength and energy
