Habanos S.A. has given a brief preview of cigars to be released at the Festival del Habano XVII, an annual event starting February 29th in Havana, Cuba lasting the entire week.
In a recent press release, SA Habanos mentioned the venerable Hoyo de Monterrey line will be the brand carrying this year's “Reserva Cosecha”. Two other points of note that stood out were that Cuba will be celebrating their 20th anniversary and H.Upmann plans to beef up their line. Earlier this year, there appeared to be a “leaked list” of 2016 offerings with some interesting items from Cohiba (also celebrating their 50th anniversary this year). Habanos S.A. stated that Cohiba will play a special role at the Festival. Rumor has it, two new Cohiba sizes will be released in 2016, the Cohiba Humidor Oro Majestuosos 58 and the Media Siglo; no further details are available at this time.
