American Legion Premium Cigars, the line of premium cigars created by the Blanco Cigar Company to help raise funds for the American Legion, will have two new vitolas added to it later this year.
David Blanco of Blanco Cigar Co. told halfwheel that a 5 x 52 robusto and 6 x 60 gran toro are being added, with pre-orders accepted at the IPCPR Convention and Trade Show later this month. Blanco expects to have the cigars on shelves in the fall, either in October or November. Pricing has not been disclosed as of yet.
It will be the first time the line has added new sizes since being announced in February 2014. It debuted in a single vitola, a 6 x 52 toro that came with an MSRP of $5.75 each and $115.00 per box of 20 cigars. The cigar uses a Nicaraguan habano rosado wrapper with Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco underneath.
