The pumpkin spice craze has now come to cigars.

General Cigar Co. has informed retailers about its latest CAO holiday edition, Rider’s Revenge. While many of the details remain the same—6 1/2 x 52 toro, 14-count boxes, aggressive packaging—there’s one major difference with the newest release, it’s flavored.

This appears to be the first time that the October trend of pumpkin spice has come to cigars. The new line is officially part of the CAO Flavours line.

Pricing is set at $7.99 per cigar. At least one retailer has already listed the cigars for sale. Production is limited to 1,200 boxes.

Multiple emails sent to General Cigar Co. were not returned.

Previous releases in the CAO holiday series include CAO La Traviata Maduro Evil Snowman and CAO America Sinister Sam.
