Not long ago we reviewed the La Sirena SeaLion here on the Dojo and if you read that review you would know how much we loved that particular vitola.
The Sea Lion is finally making it’s way into stores so you will be able to pick some up and see for yourself how tasty this cigar is. Not only is the Sea Lion a unique size and shape, each box of 10 comes with a single maduro version of the cigar making this one of the most unusual releases we have seen in a long time.
Another interesting La Sirena is also hitting stores shelves today, the “Dubloon” which is a 7.25 x 56 Salomon.
In a recent press release from Miami Cigar & Company the legend of the Dubloon is as follows…
In a recent expedition to Lake Nicaragua, which archeologists feel was once a large bay alongside the Pacific Ocean, a discovery was made. The dangerous mission to find treasures of the mermaid was met by sharks and other seemingly out of place aquatic animals. On the last day, in one of the deepest parts of the lake a cave was located with treasures of the mermaid.
Among these treasures was the Dubloon, a 7.25 x 56 Salomon. The name comes from the Spanish coins that surrounded this new rare size. The rarest of all Dubloons, was one that featured a distinctive 8 stamped into it.
These pieces of 8; the La Sirena Dubloon comes packaged in an 8 count box, of which only 500 are available. They made their debut at the IPCPR in Las Vegas. Like the La Sirena “A” they feature a dark, toothy Habano Oscuro wrapper, two Cuban-seed Nicaraguan binders, a Nicaraguan Criollo ’98 and a Corojo ’96 over fillers from Nicaragua.
