Caldwell Cigar Co. is adding a new size to its Eastern Standard Sungrown line this month, a 7 1/2 x 42 vitola dubbed Magic and also known as a Super Lancero.
The blend remains the same as the rest of the cigars in the line, meaning a hybrid Mexican/habano wrapper over an Ecuadorian binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Mexico. The new vitola comes with an MSRP of $13 before taxes, and is offered in 20-count boxes. Each of the 1,000 boxes being produced for the worldwide release has been signed and numbered, and are expected to be on retail shelves before the end of November.
“This size was originally produced for fun for the trade show when we released the Sungrown line,” Caldwell told halfwheel. He added that he has been asked about it consistently since that time, and wanting to close out “this weird year” by releasing a new cigar, decided it was time to add the Magic Super Lancero as a limited release.
“This cigar really showcases what we do best, which is smaller ring gauge, medium-bodied cigars,” he added.
It joins the four other regular production sizes in the Eastern Standard Sungrown line:
- Eastern Standard Sungrown Robusto (5 x 50)
- Eastern Standard Sungrown Toro Extra (6 1/4 x 54)
- Eastern Standard Sungrown Double Robusto (6 1/4 x 56)
- Eastern Standard Sungrown Magnum (6 x 60)
Eastern Standard Sungrown debuted at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show and was released in September of that year. It is produced at Tabacalera William Ventura in the Dominican Republic.
