Paying tribute to the classic style of cabinet selection cigars, Pure Aroma Cigars, Inc.—parent of the D’Crossier brand—will be debuting the Flor de D’Crossier Cabinet Selection No.1, a three-size line packaged in cabinets of 20.
The new line uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It will be offered in three sizes: Belicoso (6 x 54), Tainos (6 1/2 x 54) and Cañonazo (5 7/8 x 52). Suggested retail pricing is $11.90-12.99 per cigar.
While cabinet boxes of cigars are best known for coming in boxes of 50, the Flor de D’Crossier Cabinet Selection No.1 will come in boxes of 20.
For many years, cabinet cigars literally came in cabinets. Multiple wooden boxes of cigars would be packed into large cabinets, oftentimes with these cigars produced for specific buyers. Over time, the practice of constructing and shipping custom furniture became seen as impractical and the physical cabinets were phased out. Today, some Cuban and non-Cuban cigars come in cabinet-style boxes with wheels of 50 cigars placed in wooden boxes.
Last year, Hunters & Frankau, the British distributor for Habanos S.A, created special cabinets for its 225th anniversary cigar.
