The cigar will debut in one size, a 5 x 52/56 figurado with a flat cap. It features a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Connecticut broadleaf binder and a variety of Nicaraguan fillers, including those from Condega, Estelí, Jalapa and Pueblo Nuevo, as well as Dominican olor ligero. There is also Pennsylvania double ligero, nicknamed Green River Sucker One, an ultra-strong ligero Martin says was crucial to the blend.
“It wasn’t until I found the Pennsylvania Double Ligero, a regrowth leaf with two to three times the nicotine levels of our other tobaccos, that I had the components I needed to produce what I was looking for.”
A regrowth leaf emerges when the leaves are cut off of a plant and a second set of leaves grows on the plant before it is removed from the ground.
