September 14, 2018 Fort Worth, TX – Just off the heels of the Hostage Release, Providencia Cigars will be offering special cigars, which have been created using the company’s proprietary “Aromatic Aging” process.

Jim Faber, Providencia Cigars founder explains:

The production process includes storing the tobacco leaves in a separate humidor in their Danli, Honduras factory. The Meritage blend uses a local Honduran red wine for the aromatic process. The length of time used for the aging process is unspecified.

The resulting sweet floral notes are something quite unique, yet subtle through the smoking experience.

The 5.5 x 52 pressed torpedo Meritage, contains select Nicaraguan binder and ligero filler leaf, all beautifully cloaked with a toothy Mexican San Andrés wrapper.

It will be offered primarily as an event special, and also available at select retailers in limited quantities.

The Meritage, like all Providencia cigars, are produced at the La Pequena Vega Cigar Factory in Danli, Honduras.
