After showcasing the Lampert 1593 Edición Oscura at the InterTabac 2022 trade show in Dortmund, Germany, the company has announced that they are now shipping the cigars worldwide.
Lampert 1593 Edición Oscura marks the second maduro blend to date from Lampert Cigars, joining the former Lampert 1675 Edición Morado. But while both cigars make use of San Andrés wrappers, the new Oscura is rolled in the DR (as opposed to Nicaragua) and boasts a fuller-bodied experience.
Lampert 1593 Edición Oscura begins with a two-year-aged Mexican San Andrés wrapper, which covers a three-year-aged Indonesian binder and three-year-aged Dominican fillers. Finally, the rolled cigars were aged for one year before release. The cigars were rolled out of the Ventura family’s secondary El Maestro factory in the DR, which has been used since the Tabacalera William Ventura factory was destroyed in a fire last fall.
While three sizes have been made for the line, only the toro will be available at launch, priced at $16 per cigar MSRP (available in 10-count boxes). This size will be joined by robusto and short robusto formats later in the year.
Lampert’s portfolio consists of cigars from Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and the DR. The Lampert 1675 series is rolled in Nicaragua, consisting of three blends; the Lampert 1593 series is rolled in the DR, and now consists of two blends.
