To celebrate 31 years of Miami Cigar, Nestor Miranda recently released the 1989, a cigar just north of medium-bodied (depending on which wrapper you buy). A great stick at a suggested retail price of around $5, it comes with an Oscuro or Rosado wrapper, just like the other cigars in the Nestor Miranda Collection.
The 1989 was developed to be affordable. Nestor wanted this cigar to be “sold at a reasonable price point,” he told Pepin Garcia, whose My Father Cigar Corp. manufactures it, “in deference to prevailing economic conditions.
Rene Castada, Vice President of Miami Cigar, explained, “While we do not have any cigars in the Nestor Miranda Collection that are expensive, we wanted to offer an excellent smoke at a very reasonable price point.” He continued, “It has become obvious that smokers, like everyone else, these days, are seeking to restrain their spending.”
The 1989 effectively completes the Nestor Miranda Collection, coming after the Special Selection and the Dominicano. It is made from Nicaraguan tobacco (from Esteli and Jalapa) and comes in three sizes: Toro, Robusto and Torpedo. The Torpedo is included in the 10-pack now available from the Cigar Rights of America.
