Dunhill is off to Honduras for its latest release, something that is expected to be much fuller than its current line-up of offerings. At next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, Heritage by Dunhill will be revealed.
It will ship in August with an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Honduras and Nicaragua. The brand is owned by British American Tobacco and distributed in the U.S. by General Cigar Co. It is also produced at General’s STG Danlí factory in Honduras.
While there will be five sizes made, only four are expected to ship in the U.S.: Churchill (7 1/2 x 50, $12.55), Gigante (6 x 60, $12.95), box-pressed Robusto (5 x 50, $10.15) and Toro (6 x 50, $11.25). There is also a Torpedo (6 1/4 x 52), but it is not slated to be available in the U.S. as of now. The cigars will be packaged in boxes of 10.
