The second Tienda Exclusiva by Willy Herrera will head to Indiana next month.
Riverside Cigar Shop & Lounge of Jeffersonville, Ind. has announced that it will be receiving a Tienda Exclusiva by Willy Herrera next month, with a launch scheduled for an event on July 11 with Herrera in attendance.
Tienda Exclusiva, which translates to store exclusive, is a program where Herrera blends cigars exclusively for stores. This release is a 6 3/8 x 46 corona larga using an Ecuadorian habano wrapper and binder with Nicaraguan fillers.
“I’m very excited about the second ‘Tienda Exclusiva’ release,” said Herrera in a press release. “I spoke with Jeff (Mouttet), the owner of Riverside, to get a feel for his customer’s smoking profiles. I’m really happy with the outcome of this cigar. This blend is a medium-bodied, full-flavored spicy stick!”
The first release in the series was last year for Barrister Cigars of Union, N.J.
Pricing is set at $13.50 per cigar with the release coming in boxes of 10. Production numbers have not been disclosed for either Tienda Exclusiva release.
Riverside Cigar Shop & Lounge also has a sister bourbon and cigar bar, MATCH Cigar Bar, which is also located in Jeffersonville.
