El Septimo will have two new cigars available next month.
Both fall under the new Gilgamesh Collection though the cigars appear to be somewhat different. They are notable as this is the first time the brand has offered a cigar that is 50 ring gauge.
The Gilgamesh Collection Medium Bodied is a 5 9/10 x 50 toro that is made entirely of Costa Rican tobaccos. The packaging suggests that at least some of the tobacco is 10-years-old. It is priced at $20 per cigar and offered in boxes of 10.
There is also the Gilgamesh Collection Full Bodied, also a Costa Rican puro measuring 5 9/10 x 50. Its packaging suggests that at least some of the tobacco is six-years-old.
Both cigars will begin shipping on March 15.
The line is named after King Gilgamesh, who was believed to be the king of Sumer—the southern part of Mesopotamia, now known as Iraq—sometime between 2,800-2,500 B.C.
El Septimo produces its cigars at its own factory in Costa Rica.
Correction: This story originally indicated that the cigars are produced at the Pure Aroma Cigars S.A. factory in Costa Rica.
