Christian Eiroa has announced the first set of details about a cigar that he will be releasing as an exclusive to the Tobacconists Association of America at their annual meeting and trade show in March.

It’s a Honduran puro that will come in an 11/18 vitola, a perfecto shape that measures 6 x 52 with a bulging middle section. Eiroa says he has selected a dark, high priming authentic corojo wrapper for the project.

Pricing is set at $18.50 per cigar, or $333 per box of 18, which Eiroa said will be in a pyramid design. He has not finalized the name of the cigar, when the cigars will be available, or how many will be produced.

The Tobacconists Association of America will gather for its annual meeting March 17-21 at Casa de Campo in La Romana, Dominican Republic.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
