German Engineered Cigars has announced a new line of cigars, and the fans of the brand will determine the size it comes in. The name of the new line is undisclosed but it falls under the AUTONOM series which was announced back in February. This is also one of the projects that the company is partnering with Claudio Sgroi on which was announced in September of last year.
The new line will be available starting in November of 2022 and will come in a 5 x 50 robusto, and one other yet-to-be-determined size. To decide this second size, the company is going to sell three-packs each potential new vitola. The three sizes in the pack are: Corona Grande 6 x 42, Churchill 7 x 47, and Perfecto 5.5 x 54.
The blend for the new cigar uses a Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan Jalapa binder, and Nicaraguan fillers from Esteli and Jalapa. As you may have guessed from the pictures, the bands do glow in the dark.
The Lineup packs will be available at local and online German Engineered Cigars retailers in the U.S. at an MSRP of US$ 30. Production is limited and the company expects supply to not last long. The packs will be shown off at their booth at the PCA trade show next week.
