General Cigar introduced a ton of new things at the show this year, and we are pretty excited about some of them.
Richmond, VA -- General Cigar Company is excited to announce today they have hired Sam Leccia as “Cigar and Blend Specialist.” General Cigar has also acquired the Leccia Tobacco Company cigar brands, as part of the Foundry Tobacco Company, and will market and distribute the Black, White and Luchador lines, effective today.
"Enjoyable. As I've been smoking over these past few years, I've slowly begun to lose a taste for heavy maduros, but I like this one, in part because it's not too heavy. It's not particularly complex, but it features everything a maduro ought to. It's like if AJ Fernandez quit blending budget sticks and moved on to the good stuff. Highly recommended for fans of his work who want to try something just a little bit better." -Derek (StogieNinja)
Sam Leccia, President of Leccia Tobacco, is looking to put the cigar industry in a headlock with the announcement of his latest blend, "Luchador". Following up on the success of his much anticipated comeback with the highly acclaimed Leccia Black and White cigar blends.
