New cigars for the United Kingdom. Tor Imports, the most successful distributor of New World cigars in the United Kingdom is bringing is some new cigars. Those are a limited edition from Nicaragua, and four new blends from Mexico.

The annual Oliva Series V Melanio Limitada Exclusivo Europa has landed at the warehouse of Tor Imports last week. The cigars are currently being distributed to retailers all over the Kingdom. The cigars are made with Nicaraguan fillers and binder. The wrapper is an Ecuadorian Sumatra. But unlike the regular Oliva series V Melanio, this cigar isn’t box-pressed. The 6¾x48 Diadema is round. The total allocation for the U.K. is 2500 boxes of ten cigars.

Casa Turrent

The Turrent family created the Casa Turrent line a few years back, different blends and only available in one vitola. Those cigars were named after important years for the Turrent Family. Last year the Turrents added four new cigars under the Casa Turrent name. Again, only available in one size, a 5½x54 Robusto Extra. But these cigars weren’t named after important years. The Casa Turrent Origins, as they are called, are named after important places in the family history.

The Casa Turrent Origins is a four blend line. And named after Cuba, Nicaragua, San Andres, and Miami. The cigars come in boxes of 12 and lean heavily on the San Andres tobacco that the Turrent Family is known for. They are the largest tobacco grower in Mexico. 

The Miami blend has the San Andres tobacco combined with Sumatra and Dominican tobaccos in the filler. The binder is San Andres Habano with a San Andres Sun Grown Connecticut wrapper. The Nicaragua version used Nicaraguan tobacco in the filler. With a San Andres Negro binder and a San Andres Habano wrapper. The Casa Turrent Origins Cuba is fully made out of San Andres Habano tobacco. The Casa Turrent Origins San Andres Is made out of San Andres tobacco for the wrapper, the binder, and the filler. But the filler also contains Nicaraguan tobacco, so it’s not a Mexican puro.
