PDR Cigars will be adding an extension to its Small Batch Reserve series at this month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, as the Dominican cigar maker has announced a new line called Wicked Pugs.
The blend uses a Brazilian Cubra wrapper that will be available in both a natural rosado version or a maduro offering. Underneath sits a Dominican criollo ’98 binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Three sizes are slated for the debut, all of which share a pigtail cap, perfecto vitola and a 60 ring gauge. The No. 1 will be a 4 x 60, the No. 2 a 5 x 60 and the No. 3 at 6 x 60. Each size will come in 12-count boxes with single stick MSRPs between $9 and $12.
News of the new release was first reported in Cigar Insider. PDR Cigars has not replied to a request for comment on the line or confirmation about the details reported.
