IPCPR 2013: Leccia Tobacco


Sam Leccia is back. Last time the cigar trade show was in Las Vegas, Leccia was supposed to be back, but then legal complications got in the way. Earlier this year, Leccia returned under the Leccia Tobacco name with Toraño handling the distribution. Black and White have already shipped and that was it for the show, a breath of fresh air given the cigar world we live in.

The Booth
Nestled in the back of the Toraño booth with a hand of fire cured tobacco was Leccia Tobacco, the company. It was busy and Leccia himself was difficult to get ahold of, something that shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone.

Black and White Sampler
This was on display and orders were apparently being taken, despite the fact packaging and sizes aren’t entirely done. What we know is that it will be six cigars: a 6 1/2 x 52 Box-Pressed Torpedo for both blends, a 4 x 46 White, a 4 x 48 White and two 6 x 60s or Toros, the latter of which are being finalized. We were told pricing is $55.70, although whether or not that is final is unclear. For those in attendance, the sampler that was on display is not close to the final packaging according to Leccia.
