The latest addition to STOGIES World Class Cigars’ H-Town is officially available as the cigar made its debut at The STOGIES World Class Cigars Big Damn Jamboree & Wingding 2.0 on Saturday.
Not only is the 7 1/2 x 38 lancero the seventh cigar to be part of the store’s H-Town Series, it’s the first new size in Crowned Heads’ Four Kicks line in over three years. The cigar was formally announced on Sept. 24 with Jon Huber of Crowned Heads telling halfwheel that “Jorge (Ahued, co-owner of STOGIES) had approached us a while back about doing a store-exclusive for his ‘H-Town’ series of lanceros; we began playing around with the Four Kicks blend in a traditional lancero vitola and felt really good about how it smoked, so it fit the bill perfectly.”
It uses the same blend and factory as the other sizes in the line, with an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler, with production handled by Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. in the Dominican Republic. 500 boxes of 12 cigars are being produced for a total of 6,000 cigars in the first run, with the possibility of more cigars being produced if needed. Each cigar will retail for $8.95 while boxes of 12 are being offered for $96.66.
STOGIES continues to close in on its plan to have ten store exclusive lanceros from ten different manufacturers as the Four Kicks H-Town brings the series to seven releases. It joins the Room101 Namakubi Ecuador H-Town, La Palina H-Town, Fratello H-Town, Alec Bradley Nica Puro H-Town, Quesada España H-Town and the Tatuaje Exclusive Series H-Town.
