For the third consecutive year, General Cigar Co. is releasing a pair of holiday-themed cigars in time for the Christmas season.
This year’s releases are Stingy Scrooge and Wicked Winter. Both cigars measure 6 1/2 x 52, but the blends are different. Wicked Winter uses a Honduran wrapper, U.S. broadleaf binder and filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. For Stingy Scrooge, there’s a Connecticut habano wrapper, Brazilian Arapiraca binder and Dominican, Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers.
Both cigars have a suggested retail price of $8 per cigar and come in boxes of 14.
This marks the ninth cigar in CAO’s unofficial holiday series, which saw its most recent addition last month in the form of the Rider’s Revenge. All cigars have been the same 6 1/2 x 52 size and come in boxes of 14.
Stingy Scrooge & Wicked Winter have already shipped.
