Miami Cigar & Company announced today that they will be distributing Barrel Aged by Karl Malone. That cigar was introduced at IPCPR 2018, and is a collaboration between former NBA player Karl Malone and La Aurora Cigars.
“I’ve loved cigars and enjoying them with friends for most of my life,” stated Malone. “Guillermo and the wonderful people at La Aurora have been so kind to me and working with them has been an amazing process. I’m really looking forward to enjoying this special blend, aged in rum barrels, with as many people as I can in the coming months. Between La Aurora’s commitment to excellence and my commitment to the same, I know this will be special.”
“After spending time with Karl, we knew he’d be an excellent addition to the Miami Cigar distribution family” Jason Wood, Miami Cigar & Company Vice President added. “From day one he’s been a pleasure to work with and fits right in to our family business atmosphere.”
The cigar uses an Ecuadorian wrapper, Brazilian binder, and fillers from Peru, Nicaragua, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic. It comes in four vitolas: Churchill, robusto, belicoso, and sumo toro and will ship to US retailers in March, 2019. Prices range from $9-$12.
