Habanos has now officially announced the worldwide release of Quintero Tubulares, the first Quintero size available in an aluminum tube. The 133 x 16,7 mm | 5 1/4 x 42 cigar is made “Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Corta” (handmade with short filler), a technique less used but recognized by the Regulatory Council for the Protected Denomination of Origin (D.O.P.). The cigars are made by rolling the chopped tobacco filler into full length binder leaves with the aid of a flexible mat fixed to form a firm bunch. The wrapper is applied by hand in the normal fashion.
The official Habanos press release states that the new Quintero Tubulares will be arriving to tobacco shops in the coming weeks. The new cigar is already in Germany for EUR 3,50.
