The Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade, a cigar released initially for Canadian retailers, will arrive at U.S. retailers just as summer begins to ride off into the sunset.
It’s the first Connecticut-wrapped offering for the Indian Motorcycle brand, using an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It is made at the De Los Reyes factory in the Dominican Republic and offered in two sizes:
- Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Robusto (5 x 50) — $7.50 (Boxes of 20, $150)
- Indian Motorcycle Connecticut Shade Toro (6 x 52) — $8.45 (Boxes of 20, $169)
The Indian Motorcycle cigar brand is licensed to Phil Zanghi III as part of his Debonaire House company. He released the cigar in May to Canadian retailers as a complement to the brand’s existing habano and maduro variants, and has said that it should be at U.S. retailers around the end of August or early September. In a press release, the company announced it would also be opening up distribution of the cigar to retailers worldwide.
It will be on display in the Debonaire House booth at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
