The sixth size of the 1502 XO is returning to stores.
Global Premium Cigars, the parent company of 1502, has announced it began shipping the 1502 XO Robusto Gordo, a 5 x 52 box-pressed vitola, to select accounts. The release is limited to 100 boxes of 20 cigars, with pricing set at $15.25 per cigar.
The 1502 XO line was announced in 2015 with a total of eight sizes, though the line has trickled out to market with the most recent size shipping last November. This release means two of the sizes have yet to be formally released.
Like the rest of the company’s lines it is produced at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. Little is known about the actual blend, except that some of the tobaccos used are 18-years-old, hence the XO designation in the name.
