The seasonal release of has become a tradition that cigar enthusiasts look forward to each Fall. The Oktoberfest is a cigar line that has been designed to be enjoyed with one’s favorite beer. Over the years Oktoberfest has been released in different vintages and different sizes which appeal to a wide range of cigar enthusiasts. This year, in conjunction with Carolina-based retailer The Cigar Shop, Cigars is releasing a unique Triangular size of the Oktoberfest known as the Bayern. This new size will be a limited production and will be available exclusively at The Cigar Shop’s locations in (formerly known as Union Cigar Company) in Monroe, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC.

Bayern is the German name for Bavaria, which is one of the sixteen states in Germany. Bayern is the state where the Oktoberfest celebrations first originated. For the Oktoberfest Bayern, Cigars reaches back into its past and uses the Cuban-style pyramid shaped vitola based on the Fonseca Triangular format. The 2017 Dominican blend was then tweaked to work with this unique
vitola – delivering a one-of-a-kind smoking experience.

“Over the past few years, we have gotten to know the Quesadas and have come to consider them family. We were honored when we were selected to become the home to the first Casa Magna lounge, and now are even more honored to be the exclusive home to the Bayern. We look forward to sharing this cigar with our friends and customers,” said Todd Johnson, co-owner of The Cigar Shop.

“The Triangular has been such an iconic vitola that has such as rich history. The Oktoberfest has been an enormously popular line with our customers and now we have an opportunity to bring the Triangular size to this great line. It’s going to make this year’s Oktoberfest celebrations even better”, added Mark Boley, co-owner of The Cigar Shop.

“It’s always exciting to work with our retail partners on store exclusive editions of cigars.  This project was particularly enjoyable because it involved the , which is my favorite brand we produce. I can’t wait to hear the feedback on this cigar, as the vitola is one that really highlights the nuances of the Oktoberfest 2017 blend,” said , General Manager of Cigars.
