For his current retailers, Chris Arolfo of Cabal Cigars will be bringing a preview of his newest offering to the 2014 IPCPR convention and trade show, a 6 x 40 petit lancero.

The cigar is based off of his current Cabal blend, although Arolfo told halfwheel the blend is slightly changed and still not finished. While Arolfo will preview the cigar at the trade show, which begins July 19 in Las Vegas, Nev., he does not expect the cigar to ship to retailer until much later. If all goes to plan, the cigar would ship between December or January.

It is expected to be limited to 500 boxes of either 10 or 12, although production numbers could increase.

Cabal Cigars entered the market last year. The cigars are made at Hendrik Kelner, Jr.’s Kelner Boutique Factory in the Dominican Republic.
