El Rey Del Mundo Shade Grown to Launch in July

June 22, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



El Rey del Mundo will release a new expression called “Shade Grown” in July. The line launches with two full-time sizes and one limited edition vitola.

Handcrafted at HATSA in Honduras, El Rey del Mundo Shade Grown is a Honduran puro that features a mellow Honduran-grown Connecticut Shade wrapper, a first for the brand. The wrapper imparts layers of complexity derived from the Honduran Talanga Valley soil. When met with a Honduran Jamastran binder and masterfully blended with hand-selected Honduran filler from Copan and Jamastran, the tobaccos create an indulgent, silky-smooth smoke that begins with roasted nuttiness, transitions to earthiness and cream and builds to incorporate hints of spice.

Cory Beardsley, assistant brand manager for El Rey del Mundo said, “El Rey del Mundo continues to grow by popular demand. With Shade Grown we are expanding the brand’s range with an everyday smoke that delivers on its promise of complexity. This is a satisfying, anytime smoke and we’re looking forward to sharing it with premium cigar enthusiasts across the country.”

The cigars will be distributed by Forged Cigar Company, will ship on July 1 and are packed in 20-count wooden boxes. A special Lonsdale size will be available for the launch, and only 500 boxes of this frontmark are being released.

  • El Rey del Mundo Shade Grown Robusto (5.5 x 50); SRP per cigar $5.99

  • El Rey del Mundo Shade Grown Toro (6″ x 52); SRP per cigar $6.29

  • El Rey del Mundo Shade Grown Lonsdale (limited edition) (6.5″x 44); SPR per cigar $5.89
