There will be a new release from Las Cumbres Tabaco arriving at retailers next month, as the Freyja 12 is scheduled to begin shipping next month.

The cigar was supposed to be on display during the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, though it was nowhere to be seen—at least officially—in the Las Cumbres booth. The company did not have a presence at the 2017 show.

The Freyya 12 is a Churchill that measures 7 x 52 and is named Brísingamen, which gets its names from Freyja’s necklace, the source of the goddess’ power. Its blend is made up of a Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Dominican binder, and a filler of Dominican corojo, criollo 98, and piloto cubano, all of which is grown by Jochy Blanco, whose Tabacalera Palma factory is producing the regular production cigar.

It is priced at $12 per cigar, or $144 for a box of 12 cigars.

News of the Freyja 12’s release was first reported by Cigar Insider. Emma Viktorsson declined to comment further about the release, other than to confirm the article’s details.

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
