El Septimo Geneva has announced that it will be releasing two new cigars as well as a new line of accessories at the 2021 Tobacco Plus Expo being held in mid-May.

The first new cigar is a limited edition called First Edition, a 5 x 54 Costa Rican puro that draws on four varietals of tobacco for its filler. Additionally, the cigar uses tobacco that has been aged for seven years. It is being limited to 1,000 boxes of seven cigars, and the company said that the cigars will only be allowed to be sold by the box, which has an MSRP of $168 and comes in packaging that also includes a collector’s card and chip.

The company’s Gilgamesh Collection will get a new member, as the company will also be releasing the King Sargon, a 6 x 52 toro. The company has not released any blend details about the cigar other than it is a fuller-bodied cigar and uses tobacco aged for up to 10 years, but the two other vitolas in the Gilgamesh Collection are both Costa Rican puros. King Sargon has an MSRP of $20 per cigar and will be offered in both 10- and 20-count boxes.

El Septimo produces its cigars at its own factory in Costa Rica. Both of the new cigars are scheduled to begin shipping on June 1.

Additionally, the company will be releasing a new line of cigar accessories, and while details were not included in a press release issued by the company, a representative previously told halfwheel that it is a collaboration with Brizard & Co. that will include premium leather, crocodile and ostrich products.

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 Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
