Late last month, AKA Cigars sent its first store exclusive cigar to Delaware, and now the cigar has formally gone on sale.
It is the AKA Solace Delaware Cigars Exclusive, a 6 x 54 torpedo version of the company’s Connecticut line.
Solace uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Honduran criollo binder and a blend of Dominican and Honduran fillers. It is produced at Oettinger Davidoff AG’s Agroindustria LAEPE S.A. factory in Danlí, Honduras.
While AKA makes a minimum of six vitolas for each of its four lines, this is the first time the company has released a non-parejo shape.
Production was limited to 200 boxes of 18, which Delaware Cigars/Cigar Federation has priced at $176.95 per box, or $9.83 per cigar.
