The BG Meyer Co. line of cigars is set to grow this month, as the new BG Meyer Gigantes are shipping to retailers beginning on April 15.
It’s the third line in the collaboration, joining Standard Issue and Slackers. “The new BG Meyer Gigantes pays tribute to those towering spirits that have lead us to action by example,” said Rob Weiss. “Titans of character. Fearless pioneers. Those legends that influence our lives. Inspire our own personal journey. They are giants that walk among us and we celebrate them. As we do you, those who dare to blaze a trail in creating a legend of their own,” he added.
While the new line borrows from a name typically used for big ring gauge cigars that deliver robust flavors, there will be some more traditional vitolas included, though all will be at least 52 ring gauge. BG Meyer Gigantes will debut in four sizes: 4 x 52, 5 x 54, 6 x 56 and 7 x 60. Each will come in 20-count boxes, with single-stick MSRPs between $10 – $13.
The blend uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper, Brazilian Mata Fina binder and filler from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, all of which have a good bit of age on them. The wrapper comes from 2007, while the binder and filler have both been aged for at least six years, with the blend described as a notch above medium in intensity. The entire BG Meyer Co. line is made at AgroIndustrias Laepe, S.A. in Danli, Honduras.
