Cohiba Edición Diamante
The luxurious Cohiba Edición Diamante collection will welcome two new sizes this year. The new Gigante frontmark (6” x 60, SRP of $27.00 per cigar) is individually encased in wood coffins, while its sister size, the Churchill-sized “A” frontmark (8.25” x 49, SRP of $33.33 per cigar) is protected in individual wooden tubes. Making their retail debut in August, these exquisitely packaged cigars showcase an extraordinary Cameroon wrapper from the acclaimed 1980 crop. Sophisticated cigar smokers will delight in the refined blend and meticulous construction which exemplify the artistry of a master torcedor.

Partagas 1845
With the addition of the Toro Grande (6.25” x 54, SRP of $7.09 per cigar) and Robusto en Crystal (5.5” x 50, SRP $6.99 per cigar) frontmarks, Partagas 1845 will be available in a total of six sizes to complement a broad range of smoking occasions. Both new sizes possess Partagas 1845’s full-flavored, medium-bodied taste profile, which exudes hints of coffee and cocoa. The blend is so appealing that premium cigar industry legend Benji Menendez exalted Partagas 1845 as “one of the most significant blends” he has ever been involved in developing.

Partagas Black Label
Don’t let the size fool you. While small in stature, Partagas Black Label Purito (4.19” x 32, SRP of $13.59 for a tin of 8 cigars) is a burly smoke in a convenient, portable tin. Not for the faint of heart, this new size rounds out the highly-rated collection and is ideal for the initiated smoker. Partagas Black Label Purito will be available at retail in September, and is made with the same bold blend that has cemented Partagas Black Label’s spot on the go-to list of initiated smokers across the country.

For discerning smokers who seek the indulgence of a larger cigar with a shorter time commitment, we proudly introduce the Dunhill Aged Caleta (4” x 42, SRP of $19.99 for a tin containing 4 cigars). Presented in a sleek and eminently portable tin, these petite corona sized cigars will make their retail debut late-September.

Punch Miniatures and Punch Cigarillos
Widely known as the first name in Honduran cigars, Punch has traditionally been available in large sizes. This will change in October, with the addition of two new frontmarks. Punch Miniatures (3” x 22, SPR of $9.99 for 20-count tin) and Cigarillos (4” x 24, SRP of $13.99 for a 20-count tin) may be small in size, yet they pack the same wallop that no-nonsense smokers have come to expect from Punch. These new additions are made for cigar fans who demand exceptional flavor, with the convenience of a smaller-sized smoke.

PARTAGAS 150 COMMEMORATIVE HUMIDOR

IPCPR 2013 – In 1995, master cigar maker Ramón Cifuentes released a limited quantity of Partagas 150 Signature Series cigars to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the venerable Partagas brand.

Among the most spectacular cigars ever produced, Partagas 150 is embellished with rare Cameroon wrapper leaves harvested from the celebrated 1977 crop. Those who have experienced Partagas 150 cigars tell of luxurious, complex flavors and an enticing aroma, and speak of a celestial smoking experience never to be forgotten.

Partagas 150 cigars are not traditionally available for purchase, for they are savored exclusively among the world’s most privileged cigar aficionados. However, for the collector who seeks the honor of possessing these rare treasures, General Cigar Company presents a once-in-a-lifetime offer.

An astounding bounty of Partagas 150 cigars awaits the collector. Presented in an exquisite piano finished, burled wood humidor, with an inlaid Partagas 150 crest, and replete with a custom humidification device, this magnificent collection contains a total of 150 Partagas 150 cigars, in the AA, B and C frontmarks, each resting in drawers lined with royal red velvet.

The suggested retail price of this spectacular offer is $9,999.

MACANUDO ESTATE RESERVE

IPCPR 2013 — To commemorate the 45th anniversary of Macanudo, General Cigar is proud to debut Macanudo Estate Reserve, a limited edition collection that marks an exciting new platform for America’s best-selling premium cigar brand.

Alan Willner, vice president of marketing for General Cigar said, “We are embarking on a new journey with Macanudo Estate Reserve. Guided by our intent to showcase the extraordinary range of flavors that can only be achieved by blending tobacco from the most limited of origins, the Estate Reserve series will feature an annually-released, limited edition blend made with tobaccos that have never before been considered for Macanudo or any other General Cigar brand.”
For this, the inaugural Macanudo Estate Reserve release, General Cigar’s artisans have sourced a delicate Connecticut Shade wrapper from an independent grower, and built an outstanding blend around it. Unlike any other Macanudo cigar, the binder and filler are strictly Dominican, cultivated throughout the island, and aged for at least 8 to 10 years under the watchful eyes of seasoned tobacco experts.

Three super-premium frontmarks will be released, each individually encased in wooden coffins and elegantly sealed with gold foil. The rarity of the cigar’s tobaccos has limited production to just 3,000 boxes per size. Upon depletion of the debut Macanudo Estate Reserve collection, the blend will be retired.

Macanudo Estate Reserve will be available beginning in October. Each of the three sizes are protected in ten-count boxes.
No. I (7” x 50), SRP per cigar is $18.00
No II (6” x 52), SRP per cigar is $17.00
No. III (5” x 50), SRP per cigar is $16.00

The artistry of Macanudo Estate Reserve extends to its packaging, for the cigars are protected in sleek, handcrafted boxes of solid mahogany, with elegant, sloping corners and embellished with subtle golden accents.

CAO FLATHEAD

IPCPR 2013 — CAO wants its fans to go full-throttle with a bold new blend called Flathead.
Inspired by hot rods and pin-up girls, the revved-up collection is box pressed across all four sizes, ranging from a lancero to a 7” x 70, and are hand-shaped to deliver a striking flat top.
CAO’s senior brand manager Ed McKenna said, “Rick Rodriguez and I were talking about the great people we’ve met at CAO events across the country, and about the conversations we’ve had with them. It didn’t take us long to realize that the conversations were always about the same things: Cigars, Cars and Girls. Not necessarily in that order. So that’s what led us to come up with Flathead.”
Flathead features a brawny Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a blend that’s heavy on Nicaraguan leaf.
In keeping with CAO’s unconventional approach to packaging, Flathead gives a nod to the muscle car engine, with a lid that’s easily removed and used as wall art. There’s also a collectible, pin-up girl flysheet that’s enclosed in the box. Ed and Rick think the fly sheet’s going to be the topic of many a conversation.
Flathead comes out in September, and all of the frontmarks are named after engine parts.
V642 Piston (6.5” x 42), SRP per cigar is $6.75
V554 Camshaft (5.5” x 54), SPR per cigar is $7.25
V660 Carb (6” x 60), SRP per cigar is $8.25
V770 Big Block (7” x 70), SRP per cigar is $9.50

Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006

IPCPR 2013 – Building on the success of its first vintage offering, Dunhill proudly announces the launch of Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006, a limited edition cigar that celebrates the finest of Dominican tobacco.

Steven Kron, regional account manager for Dunhill cigars and pipe tobacco commented, “In 2006, climatic conditions were ideal for tobacco cultivation in the Dominican Republic, and an exceptional Piloto Cubano crop was harvested from the famed Cibao Valley. After seeing how beautifully the tobacco was curing in the sheds, we decided to set it aside for deep maturation, and use this superlative tobacco in our second Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale offering.”

The vintage Piloto Cubano leaves were aged in tercios for seven painstaking years, and served as the foundation of the blend. To achieve the cigar’s rich, complex flavor, a touch of Brazilian Mata Fina punctuates the blend, which is enveloped with a lustrous and silky Connecticut Shade wrapper. The result is an opulent smoke, brimming with creamy flavor nuances.

Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006 will be released in September in one exclusive size, created expressly to maximize the cigar’s unique flavor and aroma. The Robusto Grande
(5.5” x 54) will have a suggested retail price of $15.00 per cigar, or $150.00 for a box of ten. Due to the rarity of the tobacco that comprises Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006, production has been limited to a mere 3,000 boxes.

As with all cigars in the Dunhill Aged range, discerning smokers can expect that the experience of smoking Dunhill Aged Reserva Especiale 2006 will be sublime, beginning with flawless construction and culminating in a finale of great finesse.

LA GLORIA CUBANA TRUNK SHOW 2013

IPCPR 2013 — Great excitement surrounded the duo of La Gloria Cubana Trunk Show offerings at last year’s IPCPR show. This year, Team La Gloria set out to outdo themselves, with three new, limited edition Trunk Show releases. Two of this year’s offerings will be available exclusively to brick and mortar retailers, and one blend will be reserved for internet and catalog retailers. Just 500 boxes of each cigar will be available, beginning in October.

All three 2013 Trunk Show offerings are robust cigars and are packaged in 26-count, trunk-style boxes. And true to the Trunk Show tradition, each batch is showcased with cigar bands that are fully smokeable.

According to Michael Giannini, General Cigar’s creative director, and the man behind the Trunk Show concept, “Jhonys Diaz, Yuri Guillen and I are constantly experimenting with blends, most often working with tobacco from General Cigar’s extensive library. Many of these tobaccos are extremely rare and limited in quantity, which prohibits us from developing new collections with them. Instead, we are making these special blends available in small batches, to share with true cigar connoisseurs.”

Liga YG-23 is back, yet in name only. For his trunk show blend this year, Master Blender Yuri Guillen worked exclusively with tobaccos from 2005-2008, focusing on hearty, high priming leaves to deliver a powerful smoke, including a Havano Connecticut wrapper. This 6 7/8” x 58 cigar will sell for a suggested retail price of $8.95 per cigar.

Liga MG-08 is the brainchild of Michael Giannini who developed his blend using proprietary tobaccos cultivated and aged between three to nine years. Michael used a Havano Ecuadoran Ligero and opted for leaves with a high content of natural oils, to deepen the intensity of flavor in his eponymous release. This 7” x 60 cigar will be available for an SRP of $9.25 per cigar.

Developed by Master Blender Jhonys Diaz, Liga JD-05 is a monstrous 7 ¼” x 62 cigar available only through internet and catalog retailers. To achieve the desired flavor of his namesake smoke, Jhonys began with a Sumatra Ligero wrapper blended it with tobaccos aged three to nine years. His blend showcases his commitment to aging, as each of the brawny leaves were allowed to linger in tercios and bales to express deep flavor and complexity. The SRP for this cigar is $9.45.

LA GLORIA CUBANA LAUNCHES ITS FIRST NICARAGUAN CIGARS

IPCPR 2013 — La Gloria Cubana is making a bold departure from its Dominican roots with two Nicaraguan collections, the first-ever La Glorias to have Nicaragua as the country of origin. Both expressions signal the expansion of the top-selling Serie R line which started the large ring, full flavor craze back in 1999.
According to Michael Giannini, General Cigar’s director of innovation, “When Serie R debuted, we established a market for bold cigars, and inspired other manufacturers to follow suit. We’re shaking things up again, by further expanding the size and flavor spectrum of our cigars with two unique and different full-flavored Nicaraguan blends, each in ultra-large ring gauges. Both new collections are trend setters in the making.”
Both new collections were blended around a spectacular Jalapa tobacco, which was cultivated by an independent farmer who raised the tobacco on several small, unconnected plots on the craggy Jalapa mountainside. The laborious process of cultivating this tobacco was well worth the effort, as the tobacco exhibits taste nuances derived from the soil’s high mineral content.
Serie R Esteli
To be sold exclusively through brick and mortar retailers, the Serie R Esteli collection consists of large ring, full-flavored Nicaraguan puros blended with ligeros and visos from multiple plots throughout the country, including those from Jalapa. Serie R Esteli is handcrafted in Nicaragua and exhibits the complexity of optimally-aged Nicaraguan tobacco, through its thick, oily Jalapa Sol wrapper.

Serie R Esteli will be available beginning in September, in three sizes, each in 18-count boxes:
No. 64 (6.25” x 64), SRP per cigar is $7.49
No. 60 (6” x 60), SRP per cigar is $6.99
No. 54 (6” x 54), SRP per cigar is $6.49

Serie R Black
Currently being sold exclusively by internet/catalog retailers, Serie R Black is a Nicaraguan puro, handcrafted in the very country were its leaves were cultivated. The blend begins with an audacious Jalapa ligero wrapper, and features tobacco from Jalapa and Esteli, with a Jalapa binder. Sourced from an independent grower, the Jalapa tobacco was fermented for an entire year, and aged for two and a half years.

Serie R Black has a trio of brawny frontmarks, each in 18-count boxes. This includes:
No. 60 (6” x 60), SRP per cigar is $6.99
No. 58 (6.87” x 58), SRP per cigar is $7.24
No. 64 (6.25” x 64), SRP per cigar is $7.49

Giannini noted, “What’s also significant about both blends is that they have the full flavor that’s characteristic of Nicaraguan tobacco. They are meant to deliver the smoking experience of a well-aged, refined and balanced Nicaraguan smoke, and we believe we’re delivering that in spades.”
