The newest size of the 1502 XO Series is off to stores.
Global Premium Cigars, Inc. has announced that it has begun shipping the 1502 XO Salomon, a 7 x 58 version of the company’s most expensive offering.
Like the original, Enrique Sánchez is declining to disclose blend details about the cigar, though he previously has said that some tobacco used in the blend is as old as 18 years.
Pricing is $22 per cigar and it is limited to 800 boxes of four cigars.
This is one of eight sizes that Sánchez showed off at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show as a way to get the cigars to market before the Aug. 8, 2016 deadline for cigars to enter the market before regulations from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) took effect.
