Cigar News: Signature Ships

is pleased to announce that Signature has started shipping to cigar retailers across the country. Product will be available for purchase this week.

Signature is a four-cigar collection, handcrafted in Honduras. It includes these frontmarks: Robusto (5” x 54, SRP per cigar is $6.79); Gigante (6” x 60, SRP per cigar is $7.39); Rothschild (4.5” x 50, SRP per cigar is $5.39) and Torpedo (5.75” x 52, SRP per cigar is $6.99).

To create Signature, Master Blender Agustin Garcia and his team kept true to the original blend by using tobaccos from the same countries of origin. Agustin Garcia said, “ Signature is inspired by original blend. Think of it as a brother who has a lot of fire in him, but also respects tradition and the family name.”

Development of the Signature blend began in 2012. Agustin and his team found a small batch of Ecuadoran tobacco they wanted to use, but had to ensure that they would have enough to make Signature a full-time addition to . They worked with a grower to cultivate a special Ecuadoran Corojo wrapper exclusively for this cigar. The wrapper is related to the original Cuban Corojo seed. The tobacco was aged, sorted and prepared for launch three years later.

The wrapper has abundant natural oil which makes the leaf silky, gives it elasticity and imparts a hint of cocoa with an earthy spice. The binder is made from a proprietary Connecticut Habano leaf.

The blend composition is a story all its own. The leaves are from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua and are of the same variety as the original blend. Unique to Signature is that some of the filler leaves are very aged, and others are less so. The aged leaves bring flavor and balance, and the newer leaves deliver more strength. It’s all about incredible, balanced flavor.
