Introducing the new 100% Nicaraguan Juan Lopez.

Altadis USA introduces a completely new Juan Lopez cigar at an affordable price in USA Market.  Made in Nicaragua entirely of Nicaraguan tobaccos.  The new line is introduced to meet the increasing demand for the Nicaraguan tobacco among the premium cigar smokers in the market.
It is planned to hit the shelves in mid-August, the Juan Lopez is priced right at sweet spot $5-$6 retail price range.
Juan Lopez range will be made available in three gauge sizes in line with market trends – Seleccion No. 1 (54X5), Seleccion No.2 (54X6), and Seleccion No.3 (60X6) – in presentation boxes of 16 cigars.
The cigar perfectly captures the renowned boldness and richness of Nicaraguan tobacco.
