Maria Lucia is one of ACE Prime's (now Luciano Cigars) contributions to helping the PCA defend cigar rights in the US. This cigar is only available to retailers who attended the Las Vegas Tradeshow.
Maria Lucia was blended by Luciano Meirelles, in honor of his late Mother. It took 12 years before he "dared to blend something inspired by my mother”. The artwork used was drawn by Luciano's oldest daughter, the story goes, she had a dream of a woman but was unsure who she was. Upon waking, she drew a picture of her, and when Luciano saw the drawing next to photos of his Mother, he immediately saw the resemblance.
Only 4,000 boxes of 12 were released.
“She was the flower that rises from cracked pavement, the beauty that survives brokenness, the redemption that overcomes tragedy. This cigar echoes the life of a complex woman who reminds us that even when all odds are against us, we nevertheless have the capacity to hold onto the light.”
