Maya Selva is introducing new cigars at the Intertabac trade show in Germany. The trade show will take place from the 20th till the 22nd of September in the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund. The new products are two new Villa Zamorano cigars and a brand new limited edition Maya Selva.
The first new cigar in the Villa Zamorano line is the Soberano. This cigar embodies the flavorful tobacco of the renowned Jamastrán Valley in Honduras. The cigar is full-bodied and full-flavored. The Soberano is a 6×60 Gordo size. The filler comes from Honduras and Nicaragua. The binder comes from Honduras and the wrapper is Sumatra.
The second new cigar is also part of the Villa Zamorano family. It is the Villa Zamorano Reserva Personita. And it’s the perfect cigar for a short break. The cigar measures 4½x30 and is completely made out of Honduran tobaccos. The cigars are packed in boxes of 25.
Villa Zamorano was born in 2002 and has been a very popular budget cigar ever since. The Villa Zamorano family has expended with several line extensions. Maya Selva just added two more to the line-up
Maya Selva year of the rat
For the last few years, Maya Selva has been releasing a limited edition cigar for the Chinese new year. And named it after the Chinese zodiac calendar. Selva is not the only cigar brand doing that, with Davidoff as the most prominent competitor. But brands such as VegaFina (Altadis) and Drew Estate released cigars for the year of the pig last year as well. The next sign on the Chinese zodiac calendar is the rat. On January 25 and 26 its Chinese new year, and the year of the pig will change into the year of the rat. Reason for Maya Selva Cigars to release another limited edition.
The cigars will be in a 6×52 vitola and made out of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The filler comes from both countries. The binder comes from the Jalapa valley in Nicaragua. The wrapper is Honduran, from Jamastran. The cigars come in 20 count dress boxes. The design line brings together traditional Chinese patterns and Mayan hieroglyphics. The Rat is the first of the 12-year cycle of animals that represent the Chinese zodiac. According to Chinese tradition, 12 animals guard the gates of Heaven. According to the Mayan tradition, we are all born with a Nahual, or spirit animal, that guides us through life.
The last cigar is particularly interesting for your Ministry of Cigar editor. Born in the year of the rat, married to a woman with a Chinese background and living in South East Asia, this is a must try cigar for me.
