Dapper Cigar Co. has been reworking its portfolio lately, and along with that is coming an increase in prices.

The company began informing its retailers of the changes today, which was also attributed to rising raw materials product costs. Ian Reith added that since the company had not implemented a price increase to this point, some of the lines experienced a sharper increase than others. He broke down the increases as follows:

  • Cubo Sumatra — 3 to 7 percent
  • La Madrina Habano — 3.4 to 11 percent
  • El Borracho San Andrés — 3.5 percent
  • El Borracho Maduro — 7 percent
  • Union Break — 4 to 28 percent

The Desvalido, La Madrina Shade, Siempre Sun Grown and Siempre Rosado did not experience any changes. “We’re pretty US broadleaf heavy,” he noted, indicating that specific tobacco’s changing costs drove a good portion of the changes.

Reith is also trying to standardize the vitolas across Dapper’s core lines, so with some vitolas getting bigger that is necessitating the pricing adjustments as they require more tobacco to produce.

The following chart is a live look at what companies have announced price increases or no price increase for 2022.

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
