Re-Post: Announced releases of Habanos Edición Limitada 2012

During the XIV Habanos Festival in Cuba back in February, Habanos S.A annouced this years Edicion Limitada (Limited Edition) cigars for 2012. Typically, every year they release a number of L.E cigars to commemorate either the brands achievements, anniversaries, reserves or the selective blending of the specially harvested tobacco leaves.

Last week Habanos S.A officially announce the H. Upmann LE release dates so far, but hopefully we will see the rest by end of summer which is usually the case with most LE in the past.

  1. Pictures would be nice! I noticed that the cuban cigars produced in the past few years need more aging than the ones pre-2005.

    1. Still waiting on their release to be able to take some pictures. I heard some news that we might see the Partagas & Upmann real soon, hopefully before October.

      I agree, some cubans that came off the line lately are in need of aging. But usually the E.L's or limited edition are aged quiet good to smoke right out the box.
