262 Cigars Announces Allegiance Corona, Makes All Sizes Regular Production


262 Cigars announced on Tuesday that it will be adding a 5 1/2 x 44 corona vitola to its most recent line, Allegiance. Additionally, the Allegiance line, which features a 5 x 54 robusto and 6 x 54 box-pressed toro, will shift to regular production.

In a press release, the company said that “after careful thought and deliberation, 262 Cigars has decided to make their newest cigar, Allegiance, a full production cigar.” Clint Aaron, owner of 262 Cigars, added that while Allegiance was originally destined to be a seasonal blend, it was met with such an enthusiastic response that the decision was made to make it regular production.


In addition, the box format of the 262 Allegiance will be changing from 10-count to 20-count for all three sizes. Pricing will stay the same for the robusto ($7.50) and toro ($8.50), while the corona will be priced at $7.00 per cigar.

The 262 Allegiance is billed as a mild-medium cigar and uses a Brazilian Mata-Fina wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from both Nicaragua and Honduras. It is made at Tabacalera Carreras factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.

The new size and format will debut at the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show in mid-July, with Aaron hopeful that the new vitola will be ready to ship in August, though he said September is a more reasonable expectation.

The 262 Allegiance Toro was reviewed on halfwheel in April.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
