262 Cigars has announced that it is entering into the world of bundle cigars with Peacefield, a new line that will be shipping to retailers on May 5.
It’s the first bundle to bear the 262 Cigars name, and the tobacco inside comes from the trimmings of the company’s core lines, with Nicaraguan binders used on all the cigars and a mix of fillers.
“We really feel this cigar will strike a chord with folks who are looking for an everyday cigar that they can smoke on the golf course, on a camping trip, tackling a honey-do list, or even share with their friends,” said Clint Aaron of 262 Cigars via a press release.
Peacefield is being released with three Nicaraguan wrapper options — a Connecticut, habano and maduro — with each option available in a 6 x 50 toro or 7 x 50 Churchill vitola and bearing a band to indicate the particular wrapper.
They are being made at Tabacalera Carreras in Estelí, Nicaragua, and Aaron told halfwheel that they will be part of the company’s regular production offerings and continually available to retailers.
Peacefield’s MSRP is set at $60 and $70 per bundle of 20 cigars respectively for the toro and Churchill sizes, and retailers who bring in the line will be able to display them in a branded tray for those who wish to purchase singles.
It’s the latest in a growing list of new cigars from 262 this year, as Roadhouse is slated for its debut at the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July, while in February it was announced that the Allegiance line will be getting a lancero.
