On Thursday afternoon, 262 Cigars announced the Revere, the name of their new cigar line which will debut at the IPCPR trade show in August before hitting retail in October 2012. News of 262’s new line was mentioned here on April 20.

Details about the new cigar’s specifics are yet to be released, as the 262 Cigars team remain tight-lipped about any blend or size information.

UPDATE: Clint Aaron did release size information about the Revere, telling halfwheel.com that the cigar will be available in three sizes: 5 1/2 x 44, 5 x 50 and a 6 x 54 box press toro.

UPDATE: A press release sent out late Thursday added that the Revere will officially debut at Riverside Cigars in Jeffersonville, IN, though a launch date has not been set. The company said the Revere will not ship until October or November.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
