Chogüí Cigars has only been on the market for a few weeks and now its U.S. offerings are set to double.
The newest size will be the Dos77 Longsdale, a 6 1/2 x 46 lonsdale. It joins the Dos77 Rogusto, the 5 x 52 vitola the line debuted in over the summer. The line uses a Havana-seed Dominican wrapper, a criollo 98 binder with “habano 2020” and corojo fillers.
Victor Nicolás launched Chogüí late last year in the Dominican Republic. The brand spent most of its first year only being sold in the Dominican, but last month it announced a U.S. distribution deal with Pospeich Cigars, a distribution company established by the Szczepankewicz family, best known for their Florida-based retail store, Cigar Hustler.
Nicolás told halfwheel pricing is still being finalized.
