Hiram & Solomon Cigars is adding a limited edition toro size to its Veiled Prophet line.

The new vitola is a 6 x 54 parejo called Monarch that will come in 20-count split top cabinet boxes that are similar to other cigars in the company’s portfolio. A total of 500 boxes are being produced by Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. Pricing is set at $10.50 per cigar.

It retains the same blend as the rest of the line, with an aged Brazilian Arapiraca colorado wrapper, Indonesian binder, and a filler that includes Nicaraguan habano from Estelí, Nicaraguan habano ligero from Jalapa, as well as tobacco from Paraguay. The line had previously been available in a 7 x 60 vitola called the Grand Monarch.

The new cigar will be featured in Hiram & Solomon’s booth at next month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, though it is currently shipping to retailers.

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