Brian Chinnock of Chinnock Cellars is set to unveil a new cigar geared towards the ladies at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, and it’s called Boudoir.
His selection of a Connecticut wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Honduras, results in a mild to medium strength cigar, Chinnock told halfwheel. He’s releasing it as a 5 x 40 corona vitola priced at $10 and packed in 10-count boxes. He’s limiting the project 200 boxes, with production handled by JRE Tobacco Co. in Honduras, and expects to have the cigar on shelves in time for the winter holiday season. He also added that each box will be signed and individually numbered.
“In trying to appeal to the first time or casual lady smoker, I wanted to design a cigar that was small in size and medium to light in strength,” Chinnock said. He picked the name because of its French origins, which have been used for his other releases that get their names from French words related to the winemaking industry, as he is also a winemaker in the Napa Valley.
