Battleground Cigar is adding one of the most popular vitolas on the market to its OPK Fire line, a box-pressed 6 x 60.
The company has informed halfwheel that the new size will be presented at next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in Las Vegas.
The OPK Fire 6 x 60 will come in 20-count boxes like the rest of the line, and will have an MSRP of $9.95 per cigar, before taxes.
While Battleground doesn’t disclose the specifics of the OPK Fire blend, the company says it uses a mix of South and Central American tobaccos, with Peruvian, Nicaraguan, and Honduran tobaccos in the blend, which is described as being full flavored yet medium strength.
The company isn’t disclosing the factory making the cigar, but has confirmed that it is in Nicaragua.
Battleground Cigar debuted the OPK Fire in 2014, releasing it in a pair of box-pressed sizes, a 5 x 54 robusto gordo and a 6 1/4 x 56 torpedo, with MSRPs of $8 and $8.95 respectively.
The 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show runs July 11 – 14, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
