Hiram & Solomon has released a new cigar called The Grand Architect.

The line features a blend highlighted by tobacco from Paraguay in the filler, alongside two types of Nicaraguan ligero. The binder is a Nicaraguan seco habano leaf from the Jalapa region, while the wrapper is a Nicaraguan corojo leaf. It is offered in three sizes, all in 20-count boxes and all made at Plasencia Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua:

  • Hiram & Solomon The Grand Architect Robusto (5 x 50)
  • Hiram & Solomon The Grand Architect Toro (6 x 52)
  • Hiram & Solomon The Grand Architect Gran Toro (6 x 60)

Individual cigars are priced between $10 and $12, before taxes. It is being added as a regular production line to the company’s portfolio.

The line gets its name from one of the founding principles of Freemasons, a reference to the Divine Being being known as humanity’s Master Builder or Great Architect, according to a press release.

Hiram & Solomon began shipping The Grand Architect on June 1 and will have it featured in its booth at the upcoming 2019 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

Update (June 17, 2019) — Information about the blend has been updated to reflect the countries of origin. That information had previously not been disclosed.

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.
