Industrial Cigar Co. will celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a cigar from Mexico.

Next week, the Frisco, Texas-based store will host an event, on May 5, with Casa Turrent featuring a 7 x 38 lancero version of the company’s Casa Turrent 1880 line.


The Casa Turrent Industrial Cigar Exclusive 1880 Lancero uses a 12-year-old Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper, an eight-year-old Mexican criollo 98 binder and Mexican criollo 98 and Nicaraguan criollo 98 fillers. The blend debuted last year in a single 6 1/2 x 54 size.

Pricing is set at $16 per cigar.

The store is allowing its members to pre-order cigars and if they do so, they have the option of having their names laser etched into the boxes.

Production is limited to 70 boxes of 10 cigars.

The original version of this story incorrectly identified the wrapper as being 120-years-old; we regret the error.
