Hiram and Solomon Cigars has announced a new corona gorda size for its Shriner line, one of the company’s core offerings.

The new cigar measures 5 1/2 x 42 and comes in the same blend as the other sizes in the line, with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Indonesian binder and a filler mix of Brazilian Arapiraca, Nicaraguan habano from both the Jalapa and Ometepe regions, as well as Dominican tobacco of an unspecified varietal. It is being made at the Plasencia Cigars factory in Estelí.

The Hiram & Solomon Petit Corona is priced at $7.49 and comes in 20-count split top boxes. The company also offers a 6 x 52 toro, 5 x 52 robusto and 6 x 60 gran toro in the line, with all four sizes on display at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which runs from July 13 – 17 in Las Vegas, Nev. The company indicated in a press release that is in stock and available to ship to retailers upon ordering.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Shriner line goes to Shriners Hospitals for Children.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
