There will be a regional cigar coming from Espinosa Premium Cigars.
Pier 28 is being created for the company’s west coast sales representative, Tim Wong, and will be sold in his territory. The blend calls for a habano rosado wrapper over Nicaraguan fillers.
Four sizes of Pier 28 will be offered in four sizes: 5 x 52, 6 x 46, 6 x 60 and a box-pressed 6 x 50 size. The company has not finalized pricing.
Wong covers Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington. In addition, Espinosa lounges will be given access to the cigar.
There is a Pier 28 in the Embarcadero waterfront in San Francisco, just south of the Bay Bridge.
Pier 28 will debut at the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 25 in Las Vegas.
