The second new cigar from Dapper Cigar Co. to get its widespread release at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show has been announced, and it’s called Siempre Sun Grown.

Siempre is the Spanish for word always, which the company says fits this project as it describes its commitment to continually craft world-class cigars. The line uses an Ecaudorian sungrown Sumatra wrapper from the Oliva Tobacco Co., a Connecticut broadleaf binder from Lancaster Leaf Tobacco Co. and a quartet of filler tobaccos: Nicaraguan leaves from Estelí, Ometepe and Jalapa, along with a Honduran leaf from the Jamastran valley. The fillers from Ometepe and Jalapa come from Oliva Tobacco Co. as well, while the Estelí and Jamastran Valley leaves’ growers are not being disclosed. In a press release, the company described it as medium plus in strength and full in flavor.

The line is being offered in four sizes, all of which are produced at the Nicaragua American Cigars, S.A. (NACSA) factory in Esteli, Nicaragua under the supervision of production manager Raul Disla.

  • Siempre Sun Grown Corona (5 5/8 x 45)  — $11.22 (Boxes of 10, $112.20)
  • Siempre Sun Grown Robusto (4 1/2 x 50) — $11.82 (Boxes of 10, $118.20)
  • Siempre Sun Grown Toro (6 1/8 x 50) — $12.42 (Boxes of 10, $124,20)
  • Siempre Sun Grown Gordo (6 x 60) — $12.98 (Boxes of 10, $129.80)

Each of the sizes is packed in a natural wood, fully dressed dress box, inside which is a Boveda 10g 69% relative humidity pack to ensure proper humidification during transit and storage.

The line is scheduled to ship to retailers in the later part of August and early September. It’s joins the Cubo Sumatra line as Dapper’s announced releases so far.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
