For some years now, Habanos S.A. has been producing humidors in limited and numbered series. These boxes, made of precious woods of Cuban origin such as cedar, acana and hibiscus, for example, are made by great Cuban goldsmiths and craftsmen. Usually distributed through the Casa del Habano network of shops, these special productions are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.
Among the most exclusive numbered productions are the Replica humidors, which reproduce old Cuban humidor models, as well as humidors commemorating the anniversaries of the most prestigious Habanos brands. These productions are mainly Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta and Partagás, but also any of the twenty-seven Habanos brands, as here for El Rey del Mundo.
The 170 Aniversario Humidor Replica Antigua is an exceptional humidor with remarkable marquetry work featuring different types of wood. It contains 50 El Rey Del Mundo “Imperio” cigars. This vitola is in fact a Rodolfo (21.25 mm x 180 mm), an unusual module for the brand. It was specially selected by Habanos S.A. to commemorate the 170th anniversary of the El Rey del Mundo brand. These 50 Habanos were produced “Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga” from an exquisite selection of San Juan y Martinez and San Luis leaves in the Vuelta Abajo area of Pinar del Rio.Private Collection
