When the Felix Assouline brand first entered the market in the mid-2000s, it was known for two brands—EGO and CSB. While the former has been continuously sold, now CSB will be back on shelves. The company will offer CSB, a Nicaraguan-made cigar with two different wrappers: Ecuadorian Connecticut and a habano 98 wrapper grown in the Jamastran region of Honduras.
Five sizes will be offered: Short (5 x 50), Torero (6 x 52), Monument (6 x 54), Fat Man (6 1/2 x 56) and Salva Vida (5 1/2 x 58), with pricing set between $4.60 and $6, sold in boxes of 25.
The cigars are made at Assouline Omega Tabacos in Nicaragua. The company expects to ship the cigars by the end of July with the cigars making their debut at the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show, which begins next week.
