La Regenta: New Limited Edition Rum Barrel Aged

La Regenta, the century-old brand of premium cigars made in the Canary Islands (Spain), presents at Intertabac 2023 their new limited edition: La Regenta Añejo. A small batch of 10 count cigar boxes, pirámide size (150 mm x 52, figurado) that uses a very special and rare type of tobacco: leaves from Remedios (Cuba), harvested in 2008, which have been subjected to an aging proccess for two years in Canarian rum barrels from the brand Capitan Kid 30 years, the super-premium line of Arehúcas rum.

The cigar uses an Ecuador habano wrapper, with a binder from San Andrés (Mexico) and in the filler it combines tobaccos from Remedios (Cuba) with a Matafina (Brazil) leaf that has been also aged in the rum barrels.

For the brand’s master blender, Rubén Arteaga, is his best creation but he assures that they still have a good part of the tobacco left for future productions or new blends. Rubén Artega, like every year, is one of the attractions of the Intertabac show, making cigar-rolling demostrations in La Regenta’s booth.

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.
