In the extensive Altadis U.S.A. portfolio of cigars, the Gispert brand is far from the best known, but the cigar giant is hoping to bring it to the attention of more cigar smokers this month by way of a line extension called the Gispert Intenso.
The cigar is the product of a collaboration between Altadis U.S.A.’s Grupo de Maestros and A.J. Fernandez and is being heralded as a significantly stronger cigar than what the brand is known for, delivered by way of a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan criollo 98 binder and a filler mix of Nicaragua criollo 98 and piloto cubano from the Dominican Republic.
A.J. Fernandez is making the line, which comes in three vitolas, Belicoso (6 1/8 x 52), Corona (5 x 44) and Toro (6 x 50). Each will be packed in 20-count boxes with single stick prices between $6-7, before taxes.
