General Cigar Co. has contacted its retailers regarding the remaining inventory of cigars the company has recently discontinued. On that list are many cigars that were previously known as discontinued items, along with many others.
halfwheel compared the most recent list to the two previous discontinuations earlier this year and found that as many as 65 additional SKUs appeared on the newest list that weren’t previously known about, including deeper cuts to the Toraño portfolio and a reduction in Foundry offerings.
The Toraño Exodus, one of the first new Toraño lines from General Cigar Co. is going away. Also part of the cuts is the Toraño Exodus 1959 Silver Edition, Reserva Selecta Toraño Master and Master Maduro. Some other lines are losing SKUs like the Cameroon 1916 Corona, Casa Toraño BFC, Exodus Gold Perfecto and Tubo and the Exodus 50 Year Colossal.
“We are discontinuing Toraño Exodus so that we may focus on priority brands within the Toraño line, particularly Toraño Vault which is continuing to grow,” said Victoria McKee Jaworski, director of pr and events for General Cigar Co., in an email.
Foundry’s eponymous line and its four sizes are specified on the discontinued list along with two sizes from War of the Currents, Worm Hole and Compounds, Elements & Musing. In addition, the Ramon Allones Heritage and Temple Hall Estates, the latter of which just made its appearance in the Foundry portfolio earlier this year, are also getting the axe.
McKee Jaworski said these changes were made in April.
