Habanos Releasing El Rey Del Mundo Colección Vintage Jars

For the last seven years, Habanos has been releasing special editions only for the Spanish market: the “Colección Vintage” (Vintage collection) cigars. The cigars are sold in unique handmade jars from the traditional Talavera de la Reina’s china, in Toledo, Spain.

The latest of those releases is about to arrive to the market: the El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme Colección Vintage. This limited release includes nineteen cigars aged an extra five years in a spectacular jar made of china, manufactured in the well-known Habanos jar factory Talavera de la Reina.

El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme is an Hermoso Nº4 (127 mm x 48), a vitola just a little thinner and longer than a Cuban Robusto (124 mm x 50). It’s range of flavor is smooth to medium, sweet, aromatic and slightly spicy, in the most classic line of aroma and taste of the Habano’s tradition. 

The jars are replicas of originals used by Partagás nearly a hundred years ago, that in the twenties of the last century commercialized the cigars in decorative items of china, some of them made in the La Cartuja factory in Seville, others produced at Talavera de la Reina. 

The edition is limited to 1000 jars à 19 cigars and carries a retail price of EUR 240,-.

Javier Blanco Urgoiti is a Spanish journalist who is crazy about the processes surrounding tobacco that take place before its manufacturing in the cigar factory – in particular the secrets of tobacco cultivation. This is an area in which he tirelessly tries to educate himself. Javier started smoking and writing about cigars in 1998, initially for the Spanish magazines La boutique del fumador and La cava de cigarros, and later, as chief press officer at La Aurora, the oldest tobacco factory in the Dominican Republic. Now he writes for Cigar Journal as a correspondent in Spain.
