2013 Cuban Cigar Deletions Posted Online
Christoph Wolters has posted on his blog today a list of Cigars that will be discontinued by Habanos in 2013. I'm not sure the source of the list, I've asked him, so hopefully I'll get a reply. Take the list with a pinch of salt for the moment, until we get this news from a more official source.
Big smokes have been hit hard in this list, with two vitolas from the La Gloria Cubana being cut, while the Saint Luis Rey Double Coronas and Cuaba Diademas both being axed.
Cabinets of fifty have also been culled. I'm not too distraught however, the H. Upmann Magnum 46 & 50 along with the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especiales and Juan Lopez Seleccion No. 2 all come in cabinets of twenty five. So nothing much lost.
- Cohiba Lanceros in packs of five.
- Cuaba Diademas
- Cuaba Generosos
- H. Upmann Magnum 46 in cabintes of fifty.
- H. Upmann Magnum 50 in cabinets of fifty.
- Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especial in cabinets of fifty.
- Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo des Dieux in cabinets of twenty five.
- Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo du Gourmet in cabinets of twenty five.
- Jose L Piedra Nacionales in packs of five and bundles of twenty five.
- Juan López Petit Coronas

There's some Cigars in this list that I'm going to miss. The Juan Lopez Petit Coronas is a favourite alternative smoke of mine that I enjoyed from time to time, while the Saint Luis Rey Serie A always had a place in my humidor.
