Apparently, more new vitolas from Montecristo, as a Double Edmundo, and Petit no.2 will be added to the line up. Also a new band will begin to adorn Montecristo products, starting with these two new brands.
Confirmation of 3 sizes from Vegueros, packed into tins of 16 or packages of 3.
- Entretiempos, which is slated to be a Petit Edmundo
- Mañanitas, a petit pyramid
- Tapados, which I couldn’t find much about other than it’s in the corona ballpark at 46 x 120mm
Also H.S.A saw sales rise by 6% last year to 416 million. Much in part to emerging markets. The European market continued to hold steady despite the economic situation in the Euro zone.
