The new cigar uses a Connecticut wrapper and binder on top of a trio of filler leaves from Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Kentucky. It will be available in three sizes, 4 3/4 x 52, 6 1/4 x 54 and 5 5/8 x 46. Prices have not been announced as of yet.

Rico is also continuing the rollout of what he is calling “Big Boy Trays” for three of his lines, the Connecticut #1, the Habano #3 and Corojo #5. Each tray will feature three sizes from its respective line, a 6 x 60, a 6 x 66 and a 7 x 70. The red Corojo #5 trays have already been spotted at retail.

The cigar will sell for approximately $8-$9 per stick are being made at his GR Tabacaleras Unidas Co. factory in Miami. While it will be a regular, full production cigar, he is projecting about 300 boxes a month to be produced between all three sizes.

Gran Habano #5 El Gigante, 19-Foot Cigar, Sold For $185,000

An unidentified buyer who is totally not compensating for anything has purchased a gigantic cigar for $185,000.

The Gran Habano #5 El Gigante measures an astounding 19 feet long by 3 feet wide, according to FCN. The super-stogie is wrapped in 16,000 wrapper leaves and weighs approximately 1,600 pounds. That’s the equivalent of 25,000 regular smokes.

Juan Panesso, who operates CigarsDirect.com in Westchase, Fla., says he thought the inquiry into purchasing the cigar was a fake.

The cigar sold for $15,000 below the recommended price to a private collector who lives outside the United States, the Tampa Tribune reports.

The cigar comes with its own 900-pound wooden carrying case.
