The follow-up to Foundry Tobacco Co.’s value-oriented Chillin’ Moose line is on its way to retailers, as the company has begun shipping the Chillin’ Moose Too.

The sequel is a significantly different blend the original, using a Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper, with a binder and fillers from Nicaragua. The original Chillin’ Moose featured a Connecticut rosado wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, United States, and Mexico.

It’s being produced by General Cigar Co.’s STG Estelí factory and will come in three sizes: Corona (5 1/4 x 45, MSRP $3.75, $75 per box of 20), Robusto (5 1/2 x 50, $3.99/$79.80) and Gigante (6 x 60, $4.49/$89.80). Justin Andrews of Foundry Tobacco Co. calls it a value cigar that delivers “the best bang for your buck on the market.”

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, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
