Spanish Regional Edition Cuban Cigars

Spain has historically been a very important market for the Cuban Cigar industry, and this is reflected through the Regional Edition releases. While the Regional Editions from other countries tend to be short in length, Spanish Regional Editions are noted for their Coronas Gordas or larger sizes.

Saint Luis Rey Tesoros - Spanish flag Spanish Regional Edition

Released in the week starting the 13th of February, the Saint Luis Rey Tesoros is the 2016 Spanish Regional Edition. Presented in dress boxes of ten, the Tesoros reminds me slightly of another recent Spanish Regional Edition, the Ramon Allónes Caprichos.

It is expected that a box of the Saint Luis Rey Tesoros will retail for €80 euros.

Por Larrañaga Secretos - Spanish flag Spanish Regional Edition

It seems that the Spanish distributor for Cuban Cigars, Altadis have utilised a different strategy for their own 2013 Regional Edition, compared to other distributors. Whilst other distributors have gone for prestige, Altadis have gone ahead and produced a high volume, low price regional edition in the form of the Por Larrañaga Secretos.

Whilst other distributors have gone for the minimum run of 2000 boxes, the Secretos have a release of 8000 boxes of 25. Secretos are currently retailing in Spain at around €3.50 per single cigar.

From what I've read on the major cigar forums, this strategy has been a huge success with aficionados, where many of them have gone ahead and secured multiple boxes without even sampling the cigar beforehand. Even with Altadis huge run of 8000 boxes, I can't see the Secretos hanging around in the walk-in humidors of Spanish tobacconists much more than a year.
