A new limited edition release from Indianhead Cigars and the vaults of Tabacalera Palma will be hitting store shelves in the coming days, as the company will be sending Seek & Select to stores next week.

The line is made up of two cigars, named Sir and Madam, and while the blends share the same basic components, there is a notable difference in the wrappers. Sir, a 6 1/4 x 52 torpedo, uses a habano claro wrapper, while Madam, a 7 x 52 double corona, uses a higher priming habano wrapper, which gives the leaf a darker color as well as more oiliness. The company isn’t disclosing the wrapper’s country of origin, but the binder and filler are both Dominican, grown by Jochy Blanco. The company describes them as two different cigars that are a perfect pair, hence their names.

The cigar was featured in the company’s recent Black Bag Job project, which selected cigars from the aging rooms of Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic, and now they are getting their own release. Both are sold in packs of five cigars, with Sir priced at $11 per cigar and $55 per pack, while Madam is $12 per cigar and $60 per pack, before taxes. There are 670 packs of Sir and 495 packs of Madam being released.

This is the second of the three cigars featured in the Black Bag Job project to get a wider release, joining Palindrome, a collection of 10 cigars that began shipping in mid-June.

The cigars are set to begin shipping on Tues., July 14.

The number of cigars being released was added to this story shortly after it was published.

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.
