Two very different vitolas will be added to the Daniel Marshall DM2 Red Label at this year’s trade show. Following the trend of big ring gauges, the company will add the DM2 Red Label Gigante (6 x 60).
The other size is quite the opposite. The DM2 Red Label “Papa Joe” Panatela (6 x 38, $7.70) pays tribute to an important person in the company’s history, Joseph D. Bain. According to Marshall himself, Bain offered a loan 32-years ago. To show his graditude, Marshall created a three-cigar case out of teak wood, made for a Dunhill Montecruz 280 Panatela. Bain in turn, told him to take it to Alfred Dunhill Ltd. to see if the British company would purchase the cases. That advice turned into relationship that saw Marshall produce humidors for Dunhill for over two decades.
The Daniel Marshall DM2 Red Label is produced at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
