Valacari Cigars has announced that their new Mark 19 Black Iris will be shipping to select retailers next week. Founded in 2016 by Nimmer Ahmad, Valacari has already begun to amass a dedicated following in the cities where they are sold. As with many of their previous limited production projects, only 1000 of the MK 19 blend have been made. The Mark 19 features an Oscuro wrapper and utilizes Nicaraguan binder and filler.
Valacari’s online store locator reveals that their growing distribution network includes Limited Cigar Association affiliated shops such as Sir Louis Cigars, Mardo Cigars, and Knights Cigar Lounge. In addition to their three core offerings – Neoclassic, Nobility, and The Messenger – the boutique operation also offers a value lineup consisting of Connecticut, Habano, and Maduro expressions.
