Caldwell Cigar Co. has announced a new store exclusive size in the Blind Man’s Bluff line, as Burns Tobacconist in Chattanooga, Tenn. will be receiving a 5 3/4 x 46 corona gorda next week.
Five-hundred boxes of 20 cigars are being released to the store, which has two locations in Chattanooga as well as an online shop. Robert Caldwell told halfwheel that the cigar shipped to the store today from the company’s headquarters. When it goes on sale, it will be priced at $7.49 per stick or $149.80 per box, according to an employee of Burns’ downtown location.
Blind Man’s Bluff was released at this year’s IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in three sizes, a robusto (5 x 50, $7.50), toro (6 x 52, $8.50) and magnum (6 x 60, $9.50). The cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Honduran criollo binder along with filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Honduras. The line is produced at Agroindustrias Laepe S.A. in Danli, Honduras.
An earlier version of this story said the cigar wouldn’t be shipping until Dec. 14; this has been updated after an update from Caldwell Cigar Co.
Update (Dec. 15, 2015) The cigar is on sale here.
