For a company best known for its red packaging, Gran Habano is tapping two other colors for its newest line, called Blue In Green.
It’s a Connecticut wrapper cigar with a binder and filler of Nicaraguan tobacco, with the company calling it a medium-bodied blend that is designed to embody “the rich nuances of its fillers.” The company also notes it is a “limited/seasonal release,” though declined to go into any specifics about production, which is being handled by the company’s G.R. Tabacalera Unidas factory in Honduras.
It will be offered in three sizes, each in 20-count boxes:
- Gran Habano Blue In Green 6 x 54
- Gran Habano Blue In Green 5 x 52
- Gran Habano Blue In Green 7 x 48
Individual cigars will be priced between $6.70 and $7.30. Gran Habano will formally unveil Blue In Green at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which runs from July 13-17 in Las Vegas, Nev. Shipping is scheduled to begin after the trade show.
