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.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
