One year after the release of Mombacho Cigars’ limited edition Cosecha 2012 cigar, the company has now shipped Cosecha 2013 to the U.S.
The cigars are technically seven weeks late, with Mombacho citing the recent turmoil in Nicaragua for delays. When the cigars reach the U.S., they will then be distributed to all of Mombacho’s accounts across the world.
Cosecha translates to mean harvest, with Mombacho constructing a new limited run of Nicaraguan puro cigars from a single vintage each year. The first release in the series was Cosecha 2012, which was built entirely from Nicaraguan crops of that year. The rolled cigars then went into Mombacho’s aging room in 2013 and were finally released in 2017. This process has already been repeated for subsequent releases (at least through harvest season 2015, according to Mombacho), with Cosecha 2013 now ready for sale.
As with the original, the cigars are rolled in a 6″ x 52 toro size with pigtail cap (reportedly, each year’s release will be in the same format). Only 800 boxes of 10 cigars will be released, with individual cigars retailing for $21.95, in line with last year’s release.
