SHOP LAUNCHES NEW CIGAR SERIES

Collaboration with Altadis U.S.A Revamps with Exclusive New Lineup

Easton, PA — Shop, the largest American-owned distributor of discounted premium cigars online, has announced the release of the all-new cigar lineup. This new premium cigar is debuting exclusively at Shop, and is their latest collaboration with Altadis U.S.A.
It’s a bold new step for the brand, as the original – a single offering, rolled with hardy ligero fillers – will be rebranded as ‘ Classic.’

These new and highly anticipated new line is produced at Altadis’ Flor de Copan factory in Honduras, a landmark in the cigarmaking industry that produces several H. Upmann, Romeo, and Saint Luis Rey cigars. Famous is taking an ethereal turn with the blends, naming them Dark Lord, Chimera, Hydra, and Wraith.
Tim Person, Key Account Manager & Premium Expert at Altadis USA, said, “We’re thrilled to launch this exclusive cigar lineup with Shop. The lineup comes from one of the finest factories in Honduras – and the quality shows.”

Each cigar is features a three-nation blend of rich Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Mexican long fillers, with a spicy Criollo 98 vintage binder. And while each blend smokes medium in body and strength, there’s no limit on the variety of flavors from the various wrapper tobaccos chosen to star in this cast: Chimera, named after the multi-headed creature from Greek mythology, features a dark and sweet natural Mexican Sumatra wrapper; Hercules’ nemesis, Hydra, is the name that graces the label of the version sporting a creamy Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Dark Lord brings sweet and complex flavors to the lineup with a medium bodied vintage Habano 2000 wrapper, while Wraith rounds out the pack by adding ghostly sweetness and a bold shot of pepper via its San Andreas Morron wrapper.

Designed to be an affordable addition to a cigar smoker’s lineup, each of these premiums are packaged in ’s exclusive vacuum-seal humidor jars – an eco-friendly packaging choice that is easy to maintain, keeps cigars fresh, are reusable, and make traveling with cigars much simpler.
