Today, Pennsylvania-based retailer Best Cigar Prices announced the release of its newest exclusive, 601 Pennsylvania Edition.

The new line falls under Espinosa Premium Cigar’s 601 brand and pays tribute to not only Best Cigar Prices home, but an unlikely giant in the world of premium cigars. Because Pennsylvania is one of three states without a cigar tax—Florida and New Hampshire as well as Washington D.C. are the others—it has become a mecca for cigars, particularly online and catalog retailers like Best Cigar Prices.

601 Pennsylvania Edition

601 Pennsylvania Edition uses a Nicaraguan habano oscuro wrapper, Nicaraguan fillers from Condega and Estelí as well as Pennsylvania broadleaf. It’s offered in three sizes Robusto (5 1/8 x 50, $5.33), Toro (6 1/8 x 50, $5.99) and Gordo (6 x 60, $6.67). Each cigar comes in boxes of 15.

The artwork for the release uses 601 branding with a band that looks like a Pennsylvania license plate.
