Fans of 7-20-4’s Dogwalker size will be treated to a few new offerings at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
Vintage Cigar Distributors of New England, the parent company of Kurt Kendall’s 7-20-4 brands, has announced that it will be changing packaging options for the 7-20-4 and Hustler Dogwalker. The 4 1/4 x 40 size will now be offered in 30-count boxes for both lines, instead of 20-counts, as well as the five-packs, which are sold five to a box for a total of 25 cigars.
In addition, the company will add the size to the Factory 57 line, which debuted last year. Factory 57 uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper from Jalapa, Costa Rican binder and filler tobaccos from Colombia, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua.
The core line Dogwalker retails for $5.70, while the Hustler and Factory 57 variants have a suggested retail price of $6.
In addition, the core 7-20-4 will gain a Club Perfecto (4 7/8 x 50) size. That has a suggested retail price of $7.95 and will be sold in 20-count boxes.
Both lines are made at the El Paraiso factory in Honduras.
The new items will be available for pre-order at this week’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in New Orleans, La. A ship date has not been finalized for the new lines.
