Diplomáticos Bushido - Asia Pacific Regional Edition
The Diplomáticos Bushido was created by PCC to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the first Japanese citizen to visit Cuba. During the Keicho mission, samurai Hasekura Tsunenaga stopped in Cuba (then part of New Spain) on his way to the Vatican in Rome.
Translated from Japanese as ‘Way of the Warrior’, the Diplomáticos Bushido comes in boxes of twenty five and housed in intricate black lacquered boxes. A collectors item.
One of the scarcest regional editions in recent years. Due for release in 2014, limited boxes were made available to the Asia Pacific markets in early 2015. However, as of March 2016, the full allocation of the Diplomáticos Bushido has yet to been made public. As late as September 2015 it was alleged supplies were being boxed.
Pricing (on release - May 2015):
International $700 USD
338 Hong Kong dollars a box.

Ramon Allónes Perfectos - Swiss Regional Edition
Released in the second week of November 2014, the Ramon Allónes Perfectos utilises the same white band design as 2011 Limited Edition, the Ramon Allónes Allones Extra. The cigar is reminicent of the United Kingdom Regional Edition, the Bolívar Británicas (although does not quite share the same size)
The Ramon Allónes Perfectos is an attempt in resurrecting the style that is the 'Cigars of old'. The perfectos shape, along with the retro Ramon Allónes band tries to highlight that fact.
Word is that there will be a strictly limited release of one hundred humidors, each one containing ten Perfectos.
Bolívar Bosphorus - Turkish Regional Edition
Por Larrañaga Sobresalientes - United Kingdom Regional Edition
Announced during the week of the 2014 Habanos Festival, the Por Larrañaga Sobresalientes will be the largest ring gauged Regional Edition made specific for the British market. An interesting vitola in the fact that it has an odd numbered fifty three ring gauge that is difficult to pronounce. It's not the first Sobresalientes Regional Edition however, as in previous years we have had the Ramon Allónes Sidon and Bolívar 681 for both Lebanon and Bulgaria respectively.
