To round out its pre-IPCPR trade show news, 7-20-4 Cigars has announced that they will be adding a pair of formally limited edition cigars to its regular production lineup.

The 7-20-4 Hustler Corona Gorda and 1874 Series Lancero had both been 100-box short runs that were made available to selected accounts, but now all 7-20-4 authorized retailers will have access to them, according to Taylor Douglas Hall, the company’s inside sales director.

Both of the cigars will be released in 20-count boxes, with the Hustler Corona Gorda having an MSRP of $9 per cigar and $180 per box, while the 1874 Series Lancero will be $10 per stick and $200 per box. Production for both cigars remains in the hands of Nestor Plasencia and his staff at Tabacos de Oriente; the Honduras factory will handle Hustler while the 1874 Series will be produced at the Nicaraguan factory.

Additionally, 7-20-4 will be releasing its existing Hustler Dog Walker in 20-count boxes. Currently, the size has only been available in five-count packs. Those will be priced at $6 per cigar and $120 per box before taxes.

In mid-June, the company announced its latest creation, Factory 57, which should arrive at retail in October.

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, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
